The book trailer for my picture book, Nature's Lullaby Fills the Night (Sterling Children's Books), is now on YouTube. Here's the link if you'd care to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omVXBUYs22s

In it, night falls and the world sings a lullaby. From moths fluttering their powdery wings to willows shushing, shushing in the breeze, tender nature scenes sweep across land, sea, and sky to soothe and calm little ones.

The official release date is February 6. Yay!

Oh, Dee, it's beautiful.!!!Sterling did a masterful job evoking calm and a sense of wonder with this sweet video. Can't wait until February 6!!! (As an aside, immediately after I pressed "play," my 6 year-old came into the room mid-rant, but stopped to snuggle up and watch the video. When it ended, he asked to see it again! I never did learn the cause of his meltdown.)

Oh, Dee! I agree with Carrots! It's beautiful. And I can see exactly why her little one would be soothed by it and want to have it played again.

The illustrations are lovely, and your text is wonderful. And the trailer is one of the best I've seen for a picture book. Did you have it done or did Sterling do it?

Glad to know the music worked to calm your child! I spent weeks trying to decide on the music. Thanks for your nice comment. You're the best!

I made one first and sent it to Sterling. When they asked the artist for permission to use the illustrations I wanted to use in the trailer, she said she had been thinking about making one since she owns an animation studio. She made it and Sterling sent it to me to add the music. Then I sent it back to Sterling and they posted it. It was a three-way collaboration! I love my illustrator and the Sterling staff!

Thank you for the kind comment.  :love5

I'm sorry I gave all the credit to Sterling and not to you!! I should have remembered how you'd done the other amazing trailer for Dough Knights and Dragons!!

I love hearing how these things work with publishers, too. (And it makes me yearn to work with Sterling all the more.....)

Thanks, Vonna.   :thank you It took me weeks to pick out music. I listened to hundreds of songs, but the music kept doing what it was supposed to do. It put me to sleep, so I wasn't able to get through as many soundtracks per day as I would have liked.
