From Morag Stiles on Authonomy.com – (Review About The Novel)
You know your stuff. You have your finger on the occult/religious/supernatural pulse. I recognise many of your references. Aaah the path less traveled… The first chapter is a bit long, but you and Erik Kripke will get on like a house on fire. (Erik Kripke writes Supernatural).
I respect writers that do their homework and write convincingly. Yes the sweat and fear, first experienced as a child in the dark … that fear you cannot rationalise, the fear for your life, without being able to pinpoint the danger….
You’ve conveyed that exceptionally well.
Stephen Parker – (About The Chosen Trailer V3)
Darkly compelling, artistically GORGEOUS! The music blends perfectly to lure the reader into the appropriate ravine of horror! Exquisite job!
James Brennan – (Sydney Aust) (About The Chosen Trailer V2)
Music sounded like it was from Silent Hill Horror… nice choice… and the blurbs are faster keeping your attention running…. much better mate… very cool
More to come ….
Some days ago I had a chat with my good friend, Brian from The New Author, who gave me some suggestions about a Book Trailer, which would tie in nicely with the “Greatest Urban Legends” project I am soon to launch on You Tube.
Now I am not a professional movie maker, and infact I have never used a MovieMaker in my life, but this seemed like a fun idea, so after taking Brian’s advice, I got myself somewhat knowledgable about how to make a short clip, and away I went.
With the help of Windows Movie Maker I decided to make several versions of a book trailer of The Chosen.
The first video has the backgroud of the song, Black Fingernails Red Wine by Eskimo Joe. I have always thought that this is a fitting song for The Chosen, and ever since I heard it on You Tube, I have imagined this song being the theme for the book if it ever gets to be a movie.
The second version is the Eerie version which I put together late yesterday. It is shorter than the first one, but the sound is haunting. Have a listen and see which one you all like better.
Brian suggested that I add some images, so this piece is what I put together last night.
My YouTube Project will be going live in Summer.
