Official Book Trailer & ARC Contest!

Invisible cover
You've been waiting for it.
I've been waiting for it.
Inigo Montoya *hated* waiting for it.
And now it's here... The Official Book Trailer for Luminous!

*drum roll, please*

This original 3D-animated book trailer was created by talented artists Jesse Cabrera, Michael Jaso, Alicia Samela & Ali Phelps under the direction of Jason Wiser at The New England Institute of Art. I am thrilled to share it with you & invite YOU to share it with everyone else. Hence:

***The Pay It Forward ARC Giveaway Contest!***

To celebrate the launch of my trailer, I'm giving away a signed ARC of LUMINOUS to one lucky reader who Pays It Forward!

Official-Type Rules:

1) Embed the book trailer on your blog, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. and link to Twitter between April 25th-May 7th to share it with your friends. Easy Code:
2) Include your email & where you linked it in the Comments section below so you can be entered to win!
3) "Like" it on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads or join me as a Friend, Subscriber, or Follower if you want more of my kind of madness. (This isn't a requirement, it's just nice to share!)
4) Please note: this contest is open to US residents only. Stay tuned for more international contests in the countdown to launch!

A random drawing will take place on Monday, May 9th and one YOU might be the one to win a signed ARC of LUMINOUS! (And an extra little extra surprise, because I love surprises.) *wink*

Watch! Enter! Win! GO!

Good luck!

I shared on Facebook Dawn! What a creepy cool book trailer! LOVED IT!!! Can't wait for this book to come out (if I don't win the ARC)!!!

Re: Enter to WIN
YAY! Thank you, Mindy!

It is both beautiful and creepy. I think every review has included the words "strange" and "weird" and even sometimes "unique" -- HUZZAH!
Apr. 25th, 2011 04:38 pm (UTC)
Whoa. WHOA!!!
Apr. 25th, 2011 05:06 pm (UTC)
*grin* That means a lot coming from you. ;-)
Apr. 25th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
Wow, sudden skeleton is awesome.
Apr. 26th, 2011 03:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The artists did a great job making it both beautiful and spooky!

Luminous Trailer
Even though I can't enter, darn it. (I'm right on the border, I can even see the bridge to the USA) I linked to the trailer on Facebook (Adrienne Smith-Gelbart) Poor me ;(

Hi Dawn,
Here's the link to my post on your book trailer:

My name is Inigo Montoya. Your trailer is awesome. Prepare to be linked.

Yeah, that's an incredibly warped version of Inigo's speach, but I'm tired today. ;-)

I embedded it on my blog and advertised it on twitter (@justJoanS). The link to the post on my blog is:

oh yeah, my email jstradling(at)treasuretoyfoxterriers(dot)com
It would be great to win an ARC and get an early peek. June is sooo far away! =D

Ahh I don't know why it says my comment is suspicious!

I'm suspicious that your comment is suspicious...

Thank you!! Isn't it creeptastic? The book itself is more pretty than spooky, but it's been known to be both!

Very unique book trailer, I've never seen one done in 3D animation before. And I was definitely not expecting that ending!

I tweeted about it here:!/booksobsession/status/64846976797245440

Thanks for the opportunity to win your book.
May. 2nd, 2011 03:10 am (UTC)
Expect the Unexpected! Maybe that's why my reviews tend to feature the words "strange", "weird" and "made me think"...I consider this a GOOD thing. :-)

Thanks for entering & stay tuned!

Here's my tweet:

(goes to blog post with trailer). Also added it on Goodreads and liked it.

Thanks so much for the giveaway!!! I AM SO EXCITED FOR LUMINOUS!!! It's been on my wishlist since forever!

May. 3rd, 2011 01:34 pm (UTC)
Thank you!!! I'm excited too! You can probably tell from all the exclamation points I keep using! :-D

You are entered and I can't wait for you to read it soon!
