A Book Trailer:

If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen me tweet about Jessica Brody's new book trailer for her upcoming novel My Life Undecided.

If not here it is:

Let me give you all a minute to digest it... 

Now isn't it amazing? I always love Jessica's book trailers. I mean, not only does she always cast actors to play the characters and incorporate fun music, but they also make me even more excited to read the book.

To find out more about My Life Undecided (You know you want to!), head over here. And be sure to check back here in June to see an interview with Jessica!


A Contest:

In support of Jonathan Friesen new book The Last Martin, he's hosting an exciting writing contest for kids and teens. To find out more about the contest as well as Jonathan's books, head on over here.
