Spring is in the air and one of my favorite springtime colors is purple—the color of beautiful lilacs! Here in my hometown of Rochester, the Lilac Festival is a massive event. It draws people from all over. So, I thought what better time to debut the book trailer for my purple covered middle grade book than right now, right in the midst of the Lilac Festival?
For those of you not in the know, the book I’m referring to is Flip the Silver Switch, my second soon-to-be-published middle grade book (can you even believe it?), which just happens to be the sequel to Spin the Golden Light Bulb. It releases in 53 days on July 10, 2018 and I could not be more excited to share it with you! It was so much fun creating this video. Hopefully it’ll give you a sense of the amazing world of THE CRIMSON FIVE, this time against an international backdrop, and that you’ll be tempted to read it for yourselves!
So why choose to debut the trailer on countdown day 53? Well, THE CRIMSON FIVE series is set in the year 2071—53 years in the future, so I thought, “Why not?”
But before I do, here’s the blurb from my publisher to give you a bit of the story’s background:
Be Curious. Be Creative. Be Collaborative. Be Colorful. Be Courageous.
Fresh off their summer at Camp Piedmont, The Crimson Five kids are together again, headed for the Piedmont Global Championships. This time, Kia and her four New York teammates travel to Quebec where they’re challenged to solve a new mind-bending task against 99 international teams. But at the Universite de Creativite, they discover a world where inventions like Thought Translation Machines and Clothes Copiers aren’t the only secrets kept.
While Kia, Ander, Mare, Jax, and Jillian attempt to create a life-changing invention in just two weeks, they’re faced with information that could alter the course of the Global Championships and force their team out of the competition. With their newfound friendship at stake, they realize that staying in Quebec and solving the Global task will require something more than just skill and imagination.
The team must focus and unite like never before to solve their hardest task yet if they have any chance of winning a coveted spot on the year-long Swirl and Spark Creativity Tour and keeping their team together.
The Crimson Five are together again.
Because sometimes it takes a whole team to help you see things clearly.
Well, I hope you enjoy it! Feel free to share this post everywhere…and thank you so much for watching!
