Photo Friday: Making a Book Trailer.

The book trailer for Eye of the Beholder & Other Tales is out!

You can view it on my youTube channel or on this website and post. I have fun making my book trailers – storyboarding, designing, sourcing or creating the costumes and props, finding actors to take part and (finally) filming and editing and sound.

Here is a pictorial rundown of the latest trailer.
