Book Trailer for "Trio of Haunting Tales"

Below is the trailer for my eBook, which offers three short, scary stories for kids who love spine-tingling fiction. Great for reading aloud at ghost-story gatherings, such as sleepovers, around a campfire, in the classroom, or at home for a night of spooky, family fun. 
Do you like Zombie Loo's new look?

Zombie Loo needed a makeover after my first attempt at the trailer. Here's the post with some of the out takes in case you missed it last week. 

Wild Hairy the Werewolf appears in this trailer, too. Each monster attempts to read "Cyclops Clyde," first story in the eBook, but they don't quite cut it. Watch and see why. 

Cyclops Clyde, a freaky computer monster, wreaks havoc both on and off screen, taunting and paralyzing his victim. (This story is a good tool for teaching alliteration.)

In Night of the Howling Werewolf, Eric Lung searches out the bullies who jumped his best friend, Ben, and stole his bike. Things get weird on Slaughter Hill, the bullies’ favorite hangout. 

Ghost Warrior kicks the fright factor up and will creep out even the bravest of souls. Connie worked overtime and now worries that she’ll be punished with extra pushups for being late to karate class, but pushups become the least of her problems when rival ghost gangs that haunt the parking structure claim first dibs on this mortal prey.

If you'd like to download TRIO OF HAUNTING TALES for 99 cents, the links are in the sidebar.

The next post will feature out takes of Ma Cob's attempts to read "Cyclops Clyde."

Ma Cob needs a remake, too. She's just not scary enough.

See what I mean? Plus, she kept messing up the words and needs to memorize the story. Talk about tongue tied. Hmm, another good example of alliteration.

So, wish me luck finding a spooky look for Ma Cob and making the new video.

I'm going to WriteOnCon for the first time. Have you ever gone to it? Do you have any tips for me?

You crack me up, Lyn. Loved the trailer. Loved the Ma Cob's shot, but you're right. It's just not haunting yet, but you'll get there. I have no doubt about that.

Thanks, Lee, for your vote of confidence. I'm working on poor Ma Cob's new makeover today. She's scarier, but needs way mo' makeup to show up on camera!

Hey Mom,
I loved it! You should add the dummy that's in your room for the background next time. I can't wait to see what else you got.
Love you,
Amy :)

I just keep picturing the eyeballs falling off of the zombie. I think Wild Hairy is my favorite.

Misha said...

Lol awesome. :-D I also signed up for the first time this year, but didn't really have time to attend. :-(

LynNerd said...

Amy - Thanks for leaving your comments! XO

Misha - Thank you! The good thing about WriteOnCon is that we can go back to the see and see anything we missed.

No, I've never been to WriteOnCon--though it's all over the blogosphere right now! It seems like a lot of writers are there. :)

J.L. Campbell said...

I'm skipping the trailer, but that's because I'm easily spooked. :)

Have a great weekend!

Eagle - It's very popular and jam packed with so many gems. The neat part is that anyone who missed it or parts of it can go to the site and see what they missed. They even had a link to last year's.

J.L. - I'm a big scaredy cat, too, if you can believe it. The video is more humorous/silly than scary! Hope you have a great weekend, too.
