Movie trailer with Movie Maker

I am so excited to present my book trailer for my upcoming book... The Legend of Ghost Dog Island.

I used Microsoft Movie Maker that came with my computer,  plugged in a few pictures my husband took of the Louisiana bayous, and got some cool sounds from Partners in Rhyme. (See ad on this site.)

I can't say it was easy as pie. It took me awhile to get the music, the sounds, and the pictures in sync, but it was worth the trouble. And best of all it was free! My next one will be much easier.


One of my illustrations in the book. Nikki Landry and her family traveling down the bayou to their new home.

The Legend of Ghost Dog Island-Cover Reveal

It's finally here!  The cover art for The Legend of Ghost Dog Island.

The talented Kelly Shorten, from Musa Publishing, has done it again. She captured the essence of Ghost Dog Island perfectly. And here it is!!! What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments.

About Ghost Dog Island
Moving is nothing new for ten-year-old Nikki Landry. Her fisherman father relocates their raggedy old houseboat several times a year in search of better crab fishing spots. However, their latest move has brought her to a mysterious bayou, where she feels like something is watching her from a nearby island. But when Papa tells her about a local legend that something sinister might be living nearby and stealing the souls of dogs, she fears for her beloved beagle’s life. Join Nikki as she seeks to discover the truth behind the legend…before it’s too late.

Book is due out November 16!  Will post links when available.
