Here it is, the moment I have been waiting for. The big cover reveal! I can't say how pleased I am with this cover. It has the right amount of sensuality and you can never go wrong with a picture of Jimmy Thomas.
So, I have decided to perfect this moment with a contest. Comment below and tell me what you think of my cover. April 1st, I will put all the comments in a virtual hat and pull out a name. The winner will receive a free copy of my e-book when it is released in June. Be sure to include your name and e-mail address. The winner will be announced on my blog.
I look forward to hearing what you have to say. Thank you for joining me on this exciting journey!
In honor of my new book trailer (see my Books page), I have decided to take a look at the word trailer. It is one of those unusual English words with a double meaning. As we all know, a trail is something left or pulled behind. So, naturally a trailer would be something that comes after, which brings us to meaning one. A prime example of a trailer is those kids you see in the mall being drug by their parents on child leashes.
Meaning two stumps me. A book or movie trailer is a preview that comes before the book or movie. Why? Shouldn't it be called a preceder because it comes before? I would think a 'trailer' for a movie or book should come after it. Has anyone ever said: Hey, that movie was great, we should go watch the trailer now! Well, I suppose in some cases the trailer is better than the actual film, but I digress.
What is my point, you ask? Simple: If it comes before, it should be known as a preceder. If is comes after, it is a trailer. So, feel free to take a look at my book preceder on my Books page.
A Dollar for my Thoughts
