Each Tuesday a member of The Indie Exchange will be sharing their trailer and the story behind it. This week, it’s Coral Russell and Amador Lockdown.
Coral Russell says:“I did a book trailer because ‘Dang it all!’ everyone else was doing one and I didn’t want to be left out like I was when picking teams for baseball as a kid. So, was this professionally done? Yes! By me! I used Movie Maker and pictures I’d taken and borrowed from the El Paso Ghost Tours that ran the REAL Amador Lockdown that I went to. The lengths I’ll go to for research in my books knows no bounds. I stayed overnight in a haunted hotel! It was a lot of fun. I asked my loyal readers on my blog for hints and suggestions and they were more than willing to participate. I grabbed dissonant music from YouTube and included if the pictures were taken by someone other than me in the credits. Did I achieve my goal of becoming a super rich Indie author? No… not yet! Will I subject people to more of my homemade book trailers? Yes! And you will like it and have fun watching it.
Thanks Donna for letting me post my homemade trailer! Let the ribbing begin. :-)”
Something has moved into the Amador Hotel. Hector, Marcos, Bev, and Tony of the Paranormal Posse are called in to either debunk the haunting or get rid of whatever is causing the problems. With the surprise arrival of Hector’s son, he tries to keep his professional and personal lives separate, but whatever is haunting the Amador Hotel has other plans.
