Feature Fun Friday - Silver Phoenix book trailer!

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Dreams by The Cranberries.


You've been holding out on me Cindy. Shame on you. I had to go digging for this. Tsk tsk. For those of you who don't know, Cindy Pon is the author of a debut novel, Silver Phoenix, a fantasy adventure based in ancient China (how cool is that!?). It is going to be released this Tuesday (my plug - go buy it. I'm totally stoked for this book, and not just because I pretend to know the beautiful and gorgeous Cindy). She also has a fabulous website and blog.

I am picky about the book trailers I put on my Feature Fun Fridays. I am a strict censor. I'm like a big burly bar hop who only lets the best of the best in (do you see me crossing my arms?). Slideshows don't usually impress me, but this trailer actually did a pretty darn good job of following a realistic story/character arc (without using different photos that are "supposed" to be the same person - hate that). But what really got me was the music. Oh my gosh! My heart fluttered in joy and rapture when the music took off. It's amazing. I really need this book. And something to look forward to as well - Cindy promised to do an interview on here, so keep an eye out for that. Enjoy your pre-release trailer and have an absolutely amazing weekend everyone!

(Look Cindy, I even gave you a pretty little border. :) I say break out the sparkling cider, it's a time to celebrate. Your book is about to be released!)

Yay! I pretend to know Cindy, too!! But partly that's because she's my online crush. Poor woman. She's gonna hire bodyguards if word ever gets out we're anywhere near California....

Hahaha! I KNOW. Hey, you're a better stalker-friend than I am. Does she live in California? You know, we could just say we're taking a trip to Disneyland. . .

Hey, that looks pretty cool!

Cindy - no, I haven't sent the questions yet, never fear. I wanted to actually read the book beforehand and get some intelligent questions in my cue, especially since you will be the first interview I will have ever done, I want to do it right. :) They will be coming shortly. :)

Aylsa, I know, right? I can't wait for it.

Beth - you can pick me up on the way, I'll bring the road trip snacks! :D
