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!
The Perfect Bride Revealed
Trailer or Preceder?
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
