Several things to celebrate

Hi,

first and foremost, one of my short stories was accepted for an anthology that will be published early next year. The best thing is, that they'll pay for it -- not much but I will get free copies too. It's my first ever paid publication in the USA! Hah! I was so delighted, I spend my weekend (plus a few days before that) on making a book trailer for my novel "Urchin King".




I'd love to put it on the product page on amazon like I did on the Smashwords site, but I haven't got any idea how to do it. As far as I can see, I can only upload pictures. Hmmm. I think I'll send amazon support an email. Let's see what they suggest.

For those of you interested in ecology or world-building, my well loved "33 Mistakes Writer's Make About Mother Nature" is back up for sale. You will find all of the "33 Mistakes"-books as eBooks on amazon.



How about you? Do you like the trailer (BTW, the voice in mine and I DO have a Scottish accent -- nee bother)? Have you ever made one yourself? Have you got a favorite booktrailer? I loved the one for "Mrs. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children". That was a really awesome trailer. Unfortunately, I can't do video, so the slides had to suffice.

I wish you a wonderful time,
Cat
