Such a journey I am on. Thrilled my book Not Really A Princess is up on Amazon for presale. Very exciting to see. Lots of pats on the back and words of encouragement.
Then four days later I receive my finished book trailer. And its SO not me. He did a nice job but now I have to write a very careful letter to him asking to change a few things. To his credit, he has not read the book and he does not know me. I think it is hard to truly have the same vision for something as someone else because we all see different aspects of the same thing. I am a very visual person and am constantly thinking. It would be impossible for someone to know exactly what I want.
I think the other part of the problem is that I don't particularly like showy things and never want to give the impression of woe is me. The book is full of hard times for the purpose of others seeing they can overcome their own struggles.
I guess I want people to see this book as more of a Hallmark movie that shows a happy ending and gives people encouragement rather than a suspense novel.
I hope all who read this book grasp the full meaning. That is my prayer and hope.
And if you watch my book trailer -- be understanding. ;)
