Third. Used to be fourth.
I started to learn English when I was 20 years old.

There are quite a few non-native English speakers [writers?] here on Mobileread.

REMIX - the trailer

I'm not at all good at languages - I'm very lucky to speak English, which is virtually universal.

On another topic, I've just made a trailer for my book:

Lexi, Love your book trailer. It's fantastic, short and sweet, with a great teaser at the end. Brava!

I'd love to post mine. Could you tell me how to do this?

Susan, what you do is click on the Youtube logo above the Reply posting box; you will get this on your message: [*YOUTUBE][/YOUTUBE*] only without the asterisks.

In the middle, between ] and [ you paste the number of your video, which you find when you go to your video's Youtube page after = in the URL at the top of the page. Let me know if you have problems.

Okay, here's my last stab at it Colorful, guitar motif, handwritten font, contemporary (at least I think so).
Ok, I have to admit, I have a wide taste in reading material, but a cover like the first one would get me every time. I mentioned it in my first review on smashwords, but I love books that are like brain candy. I don't have to work too hard, they entertain me, don't overdo the romance (I don't like traditional romance much), and they are just "fun." that's what that first book cover says to me. I'd be attracted by this second one I listed (moejoe's last attempt) as well.

Yesterday, I took the kids to the library for the first time in ages (I have way too much digital material to read). I went in intending to just browse, and ended up going through the entire adult fiction section (it's not a huge library), and choosing books based entirely on what the spine looked like. I came home with 16 books, guaranteed to be quick, brain-candy reads. I'm almost halfway through the first, and I actually spent last night finishing the book "Radium Halos" by Shelley Stout before starting on the first pbook. And it's only 8:30 this morning here.

If I'd used that first cover, Grace, it wouldn't quite have matched the contents. Remix is an easy read, but it's not chick lit; though my daughter reckoned anyone who likes chick lit would enjoy it, and she's read more in that genre than I have.

Lexi,

Great trailer. Pulls you in but doesn't reveal too much. And your casting is spot on. The young fellow must be a neighbor child?

yep, got that from your earlier description, just commenting that covers like that get me interested Wasn't meaning to suggest that you should take it because it'd make me buy it or anything. I wasn't very clear on that.

I'm about 1/5 through your book right now, and I can definitely see that third cover of MoeJoe's as a possibility. Of course, I haven't finished it yet! Enjoying what I've read thus far though....

Sound track.....Kevin MacLeod
Director...........me

Thanks, Grace. And I should say that on Grace's blog, not only can you read her book reviews, but also look at some gorgeous photography of the natural world.
