This Is Awesome.

I have this amazing friend, Torrey Meeks, who's one of those people who does millions of things really well. (I think they call that an evil genius - or - I do, anyway.) I met him as a novelist - which he does seriously well. And in the last year or two, he's started making killer videos. He made me this amazing book trailer for The Dust of 100 Dogs that has me plotzing like crazy over here. Do you want to see it? Really? No...really?? Tomorrow we will vote on what I will give Torrey for this. A. 300 trillion camels. B. A large yacht with crew. C. An underwater city. D. A spaceship.

That is totally awesome! Though I have to say that it hurt my eyes when the words jumped. Haha.

Preferred nomenclature is 'polymath'. Evil genius will do in a pinch though.

I'm thinking E. All of the above, will have to do for that awesome trailer--so unique! I love it. I'm going to spread the word.

Torrey, you polymath - you got room for 300 trillion camels AND a spaceship?

YOU ROCK.

Seeing how I've always wanted to be a:

1) intergalactic traveler,

2) Tuareg desert warrior,

3) global circumnavigator via sailboat,

4) merman,

I think I can make room for all four.

Ooooh I really liked this! Reminded me a bit of type projects I did in college, but this was way more fun!!!! Very awesome!

The uniqueness that seems to surround you never ceases to surprise me :D

Thanks for the love! I'm still plotzing. :)

Torrey - you have big dreams. But Merman I would have never guessed.

So was Saffron a Pirate Pup?

Way, way, way cool!

That trailer is awesome. But clearly you should give him a large yacht with crew so he can become a pirate himself. Theme gifts are so fun!

A.S. King said...

Thanks for the trailer love!! I am still so in love with it, I think I will totally plotz forever.

Kim - I'm not sure what you mean...but if you're asking if Saffron, during her 100 years as a dog landed on a ship full of heartless pirates? Not that I know of. :)

GREAT trailer!

Absolutely genius. Cannot wait to read your book (and see it made into a full-length movie...such a fantastic premise). Congratulations! xo

Thank you SO MUCH guys. We're waiting to hear from one other evil genius to call this trailer 100% done. But man - it sure is cool, eh?
