Book Trailer for Unlocked & Book Giveaway!


Hi everyone! This is the book trailer I've been working on for UNLOCKED, the YA anthology that will be available for free downloads on August 13th. I've just received permission for the music so I'm very excited! I hope you like my first attempt at making a video!

Now, how would you like to win a free physical copy of Unlocked?

Each story in the book contains the word key, though each used the word's meaning differently. So here's your challenge: Think of an unusual way to use the word key and post it in the comments below. At the end of August, I'll draw 3 names and send each a copy of UNLOCKED.
Post your email like myemailATthisserverDOTcom to avoid spam.

Extra entries for every tweet, facebook mention and blog. Be sure to report what you did.

August 13th is nearly here! I can't wait to share this with you all.

Will the fact that I used to watch Stars-Key and Hutch when I was a kid help me win a copy? I doubt it, but it was a key-n idea anyway. ;)

Wendy Swore said...

Haha! MT, perfect! Thanks for checking it out.

Great trailer! Let's see: You have to know the key if you want to unlock a song's full potential. (Okay that's kind of lame, but I tried!)

kbrebes said...

I'm all keyed up with excitement! Your trailer is high-key! Congrats! (But I won't be smokin' a key 'cuz I don't smoke!)

I talked to Smo(key) the bear and he and I agree that was awesome!!! Okay, that was terrible, but I tried. LOL

I tried to download your trailer to watch it--and listen to the music--but I couldn't get it to work for me. Do you have an alternate way I could access it. On AI you mentioned that you are looking for a guitarist that could mimic the music because you can't get them to respond about the rights. My son can do that kind of stuff. Are you offering any kind of compensation or is this a free-be. I ask because he's a poor college student. But would do it for cheap, I'm sure.

Wendy Swore said...

We have permission from the musicians!!! woot woot!

Thank you guys for posting. Keep those entries coming. Creativity is key. *wink*

The key to the success of "Unlocked" is the talent of the nine fabulous writers.:-)

How is that for schmoozing? :-)

Wendy Swore said...

Cynthia, I've never been schmoozed before. I'll be all kerfluffed for the rest of the day. Thanks!

Wendy Swore said...

HighlandHussy said...

Your video is very key-rative and inspires me to do the same when I finish my book. Your blog is O-key, too. Good stuff!

Jon said...

I couldn't watch the video, for some reason it wasn't working when I tried. It's a shame too, because I was all keyed up to watch it!! jonmiller@ymailDOTcom

Wendy Swore said...

Jon, I sent you the email version. Hopefully that will work on yours. I understand that mac has issues opening it, but I don't know how to fix that yet. hmmm...

Grandpa Goose, thanks for playing and I love your name!

Debbie Davis, I'm giving you an extra point for all those keys! Most impressive.

Hey Wendy,

Love your final cover and the outstanding job on your video. The key to a first impression is to catch the reader’s imagination, and you have certainly succeeded in doing that.

Wishing you a most amazing ride to stardom.
