I am excited to finally announce the release of a video book trailer for my historical fiction novel Shades of Gray.
Video trailers for books are a lot like their counterparts in the movie industry – a visual promotional tool that gives viewers an idea of the basic theme.
The breathtaking and emotional artwork in the trailer is courtesy of Civil War artist Dale Gallon, a trailblazer in the genre of Civil War art, and one whose work is sought worldwide. Mr. Gallon is known for his attention to detail and historical accuracy, making each of his paintings a history lesson on canvas.
I encourage everyone to visit Mr. Gallon’s website, where you can take a virtual tour of his art gallery, (located at 9 Steinwehr Avenue in Gettysburg, Pa.), or you can browse through his more than 200 images that range from the Revolutionary War to Operation Iraqi Freedom.
I really had fun creating the trailer, and tried to make it entertaining rather than blatantly promotional. Shades of Gray has been out for a year and a half so this is long overdue. Many thanks to Mr. Gallon for allowing me to use his beautiful artwork.
You can find my trailer for Shades of Gray on YouTube. I hope you enjoy it!
