Needless to say, I rather adore this lady. We have made many a trip to New York together, acted in several shows together. We have been reviewed together. We have been at conventions on panels together. We have even been in books together (Corsets & Clockwork - Steampunk YA anthology). And if I don't see her once a week at least, it feels like we haven't seen each other in years (take the last several weeks, where our lives were such that I think 3 weeks passed - until we finally got to go for lunch yesterday).
Another thing we do together is book trailers, and I happen to be in many of hers. 'Cause you know, I also have helped in the past produce them and they are rather fun to be a part of.
So here we go again, this time it's not quite a book trailer as more like an author interview with Lesley talking about Once Every Never, with shots intercut that represent scenes from the book. In all, I think it looks pretty darn sweet. If I do say so myself. Which I do. Also in the scenes from the book with me are the fantastic Casey Hudecki, Patrick Whalen and Mike Dufays.
But first, a little bit about Once Every Never:
Clarinet Reid is a pretty typical teenager. On the surface. She’s smart, but a bit of slacker; outgoing, but just a little insecure; not exactly a mischief-maker … but trouble tends to find her wherever she goes. Also? She unwittingly carries a centuries-old Druid Blood Curse running through her veins.
Now, with a single thoughtless act, what started off as the Summer Vacation in Dullsville suddenly spirals into a deadly race to find a stolen artifact, avert an explosive catastrophe, save a Celtic warrior princess, right a dreadful wrong that happened centuries before Clare was even born, and if there’s still time— literally—maybe even get a date.
This is the kind of adventure that happens to a girl once every … never.
And now, the video!
