LEAVING GEE'S BEND BOOK TRAILER
So I was lunching with Lindsey Leavitt one day, and we were talking about book trailers, about what works, what doesn't, and how to get one made for not too much money. And I had a brilliant idea to use a theme in the book -- "Mama always said..." and record kids giving their answers.
So I did that. For over one hundred kids. And it was so much fun to hear their answers!
Then I had to find someone willing to take on my project, as I don't know anything about making book trailers. (And no time to learn!) Enter Corey, who added his own artistic flair. I think it represents the book beautifully... hope you enjoy!!
