New Book Ad

Finally got the second Shiobe Rising book ad up, which has the new cover!

Shiobe Rising Book Ad

I’m working on the Trouble in Tindrel ad now. It’s a bit difficult, to come up with music! I’m more of a “put presets together” than a “write your own theme” kind of composer–though I have done that on occasion.

And yep, still working on the Wellspring Dragons world site revamp.

I’m also writing the end the first Lapis of Nicodem book and looking ahead to starting book 2 within the next three weeks. I need to draw a cover, come up with a title, and then write the first chapter. Patch is going to be on the second cover, with his tech eyepatch ablaze with techie color.

Shiobe Rising: The Wellspring Dragons Book 1 and Trouble in Tindrel: The Wellspring Dragons Book 2 are available in Kindle format. Lapis of Nicodem, a serialized dark fantasy, is available for free at World Anvil. Follow me, Kwyn Marie, on Facebook and Instagram. Check out my author website, and the Wellspring Dragons book site as well as the Lapis of Nicodem book site. And if you like what you see, buy me a KoFi!


Book Trailer UP!

So excited! My first book trailer, for Shiobe Rising: The Wellspring Dragons Book 1 and Trouble in Tindrel: The Wellspring Dragons Book 2, is now up on YouTube!

I learned After Effects in the process of making the video. There’s so much to learn and do as an indie author, that one might not think about. I found the creation of the mobipocket/EPUB excruciating, but while making the trailer was frustrating at times, I felt pride instead of sick relief when it was done.

The gist of the stories are taken only from images. I did that on purpose. I read about creating book trailers, and a few authors said that, especially when using it as an ad, people watch without sound. If you have a narrator as the primary source of info in your trailer, it might be less interesting for viewers who have mute enabled.

I created, illustrated, played the tin whistle, and edited the music for the trailer. Modulo Torsion, my husband’s side project, composed the fast drum part.
