I find it really difficult to promote my own book series. In my head I see the really big picture. I have all these feelings wrapped up in it and can see what it can become over and above a book series on a global scale.
Which is all very good from a vision and belief and "anything is possible" point of view. Not so great when I'm trying to anchor myself to the here and now and simply pitch my series for international publication and a possible TV show.
OK, so this is where you come into it.
I have a really great hard cover look-book that I send out to various execs etc. I needed to find a way to translate that look-book to video format for networking and promo purposes.
So I put this slide show together to try and give a feel for the Charlie story so far with a call to action for the future.
Basically the Cheer Chick Charlie series is now in bookshops across Australia and New Zealand and is becoming a nationally recognised series Down Under. For me to fulfill my dreams of taking the series global and having a TV show I can no longer self publish and manage it on my own. I need magic to happen in the form of an established publishing house and/or entertainment organisation.
This video takes 3 minutes.
I was hoping you might be able to watch it and tell me:
- Does it help you to understand who Cheer Chick Charlie is?
- Does the music add or subtract from the video?
- Does Cheer Chick Charlie show potential as a brand?
- What could I add (or subtract) to make it more on point?
- Have you heard of Cheer Chick Charlie?
- Do you know any international publishers or entertainment execs?
I know, I know - so many questions, so little time. I guess any comments (the good and the bad) would be appreciated.
If you are receiving this post via email you may need to head to the actual blog post to view the video. You can email your comments back to leanne at leanne shea langdown dot com.
Thanks so much!
Have a fantastic weekend!
