I'm excited to share my picture book trailer for Dough Knights and Dragons (Sterling). As can be seen in the video, the release date is October 3, 2017. The book is already available for pre-order!

I hope you enjoy the video. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXjtV1jWkOM

I just love the illustrations by George Ermos that the publisher let me use to create the trailer, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff at Sterling Children's Books. They are absolutely wonderful!

Thanks, Vijaya.  :thankyou

Yes, I made the book trailer by modifying an iMovie template, which made it relatively easy to do.   :horse

Nice little trailer.
Don't kill me, but I would love to see that dragon with an apron on!

My dragon is off to Summer camp today. Hopefully.
