Yes, I scrapped today's post when I got the email from my publisher Tuesday evening - the book trailer for CassaFire is live!!
They are a small publisher with a limited budget, so that I have a trailer at all is just incredible. Now I have two!
And not only do you hear Byron speak, but you get to see him! And Athee. And some of the key scenes from the book. All in High Definition as well!
All right, I'll just shut up and let you watch...
And if you can’t see it on my blog, watch it on YouTube HERE
What do you guys think???
Awesome... what a way to promote it!
no small potatoes here...
Very impressive stuff. Cool music too.
GREAT! So professional. I like the part he says "All I wanted was my privacy". And the ending is just awesome!
Thanks, guys! It's so different from the first one. I'm excited.
Holy crap, Alex! This one is even sharper than the first. His face is SO detailed!
Omigawd, that is so cool! Must make you all warm & fuzzy that your publisher believes in you that much.
How freaking cool is that? I'll tell you. FREAKING COOL! Love it! You should be excited!
Wow! Looks great. Very nice. I enjoyed it.
Will, it is a good feeling!
WOW! Alex, this is great. Certainly doesn't say "small publishing house".
Awesome, Alex! You must be pumped!
That is an amazing trailer!
Dang and to think I knew you when. What a follow up!!! When can we expect the video game? :)
Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow
Wow! wonderful Alex. I imagine you'll be very happy. I've seen full screen and it looks fantastic, very good!
Very awesome! Congrats on getting it.
If it were me, I'd have it running on a loop on my TV for the next 6 months.
It's very awesome. Love it!!!
Epic! Congratulations on this trailer. It's edgy and gorgeous and makes me want to dive into Cassafire right freakin' now. :)
Congratulations! That is really cool. Byron looks like I would expect. Looking forward to reading it when it is released.
Congratulations, Alex. It looks great. I'm looking forward to reading it.
WOw, that is so cool. Can I just say, I'm looking forward to there being a woman as a MC. I can see the tension coming!
Great trailer, Alex! They did a fantastic job with it. :)
Mary, no it doesn't.
Jules, that would be cool!
Rusty, I confess I've watched more than once...
WOW! Can I just say WOW! That was way cool. Not what I expected, but the artists seemed to capture the spirit of the book really well. Great job!
Congrats on the trailer. They did a great job.
holy crap! (pardonne moi =)
your book is a movie already!
I think it's an awesome trailer. Lots of tension.
I love it! It's like a short trip to a different world and a bit of a teaser.
Very cool! Thumbs up!
Amazing! Just enough information to intrigue and entice. I thought the background music set the perfect tone and added tension to the dialogue. Nice!
Anne, I think it does as well.
WOW, that's AMAZING! I would scrap my original blog if I'd been emailed this too. The trailer makes the book sound incredibly exciting. If I were you, I'd probably have watched it a hundred times by now. Congrats!!!!
OMG! Totally bada.. it's awesome! very very cool. Congratulations.
I know it has already been said, but WOW! Loved the trailer. They did a great job on a small budget.
Very Awe.Some! I loved the tension build, humor, graphics. Very cool, Alex.
VERY nice! Particularly for, as you say, a small publisher. In these days of dwindling marketing budgets getting marketing tools at all is something of a challenge, and here you got two very nice ones.
Jules said it before me but that was what I was thinking. Holy hell, this would make a fantastic game.
I love this trailer :-)
Fantastic! Really awesome, Alex. I liked hearing Byron and the flaming letters are really cool.
Fantastic. I love that last transition into your book cover too!
Very nice! Congrats on having a book trailer that has such a gaming feel. ;)
Awesome Alex, you must be so proud and excited.
Wow, dude, that's awesome. I've never seen a book trailer like that. It's like a video game. So cool.
Congratualtions. A cool trailer.
Must. Have. Cold. Shower.
:-) Take care
Holy canoli Alex, that was awesome. Love it.
Great video. Good to give Byron a face and a voice. Something tells me he won't be getting his privacy for a while.
It's such an awesome trailer! It kinda reminds me of a very cool video game. :)
Alex, all I can say is that I am really, really glad I have 'met' you.
Congrats, dude! I was digging the sharp visual on the spaceships and the music. How exciting!!
This is SO cool, Alex! Glad you were able to post it today! :)
SL, I will by tonight!
Sarah and Brinda, wish it was a game.
Kitty, you approve of Byron then?
Size, I'm glad I met you!
How cool is that?! I'm very impressed, small pub or otherwise. They obviously have a lot of faith in your story. That says a great deal. Congratulations, Alex!
Suze not size!
Good job. Congratulations on sales, too.
woah, book have trailers? thats disturbingly awesome
Great trailer, Alex. I wish you lots of luck with your book!
Rad! Nice! Wow...did I mention Rad? :)
I loved it! The graphics are so polished and the colors are amazing. Congrats, Alex! A fantastic trailer for a fantastic sequel. I wish you a great success with it!
Excellent!!! This makes me really want to read the book now. When's the movie coming out?
Tossing It Out
Awesome, Alex! Congrats! :)
I'm at a loss for words, Alex. To me this is the highest compliment I could give your trailer. You know, given that I'm a writer who should not be at a loss for words. This trailer really makes me hope that someday there will be a CassaStar and CassaFire: The Movies.
Fun, fun! I really like it!
Terrific trailer. The one for the first book was good, but I like this one even more. Congrats to you and your publisher.
Great trailer. Definitely would like to see more. Hubby was looking over my shoulder too.
Very super cool!! Congrats! I'm not a big sci fi person but that actually intrigued me.
Lee, makes me wish it was a movie!
Jeffrey, thanks! More than anything, I'd love to see them as movies.
How cool, Alex! I'm so happy for you. :)
WOW! heheh that was fab - you must be chuffed!
Congratulations Alex and I can't wait for the book.
Now that's what I call a book trailer! Super cool!!
DAMN my work computer!! I'll try to catch this before i fly out to chicago, because i reeeealy want to see it!
Awesome, Cap't Ninja!
Howard Wollowitz would be drooling at the sight of that busty brunette! The film kept breaking up for me but from what I saw and heard it intrigues me. :O)
Love it!! I'm a sucker for a broody pilot.
It's brilliant!! Congrats! :)
I love it, Alex. Let us know when you want us to do the book trailer blitz.
Oh my goodness glory Man, that's one pronominal trailer. Here's sendin' ya a big old....
God bless ya and have a magnificent day!!! :o)
Wow! Loving it, Alex!!! Congratulation on a great trailer...
LOVE it! Too cool :)
Congratulations Alex and Dancing Lemur Press!
Absolutely awesome trailer! And today I received my CassaFirE review copy!
That must be celebrated. In order to do that I posted about the review copy and the great trailer.
Love it!!! Everything about it is fabulous!!! :)
Astronomically AWESOME, Alex. You, your publisher and Byron are my heroes. This is fantastic.
Sorry, Madeleine - I guess it's a BIG file.
Julie, he's broody all right.
Patricia, the Catch Fire day is perfect for that!
Nezzy, thanks for visiting and watching my trailer!
Edi, I just saw your post - I am so blown away. Glad you finally got your review copy.
Aw Robyn, thanks!
OMG OMG OMG!!! Alex, that is SOOO cool! It must be so wild to see your creation take shape on the screen. Bravo!
Very cool! You've got to be stoked, dude.
That IS awesome! Congrats!
Ooh, congrats Alex! This is an AWESOME trailer! :)
That is fantastic!! I'm going to tweet it now. February is just TOO far off. :(
That is awesome! I love the line "All I wanted was some privacy"
I'm thinking #1-Congrats! And #2-Yikes. I am SO behind. I haven't had a chance to read CassaStar yet... :p
but I like to start serieses once they're all done. Then I don't have to wait... Yeah! :D
Ciara, thanks for Tweeting!
LTM, there may only be two, so I think it's safe to start now.
How cool is that??? Congrats, Alex.
Fabulous! Loved the voice of Byron.
Oh wow! Mega congrats man!
Wow!! Very cool. Love it.
ooooh, I love it! They did a great job~ Congrats! Cheers....where is the confetti?!
The voice over visuals and music beat sync seamlessly. I love it!!!
Okay Alex, you tell us the publisher is a small press, giving me the impression that the trailer would be, ya know, at least redeemable.
Then I go and push the play button and get seamless voiceover, excellent and bright colors, awesome detail and the feeling that a whole lot of stuff is about to happen. I fracking smiled the whole minute and nine seconds cause it was such a wonderful job.
Yeah, if your publishers can do THAT kind of awesome trailer, then where do I go to get with them?
I've been gone all day Alex and dealing with nasty bureaucratic minions--alas not mine, dammit. Frazzled and stressful day.
Then I watched your trailer.
Big grin over here. It's well done, Alex. I love it.
You'd better be doing a happy dance after seeing how this turned out!
Big Hugs and congratulations, sir.
Ps. Be honest. Just how many times have you watched this since you got it?
Me? 4 times. :-)
Sia McKye's Thoughts...OVER COFFEE
Wowsers Ninja, awesome! Loved it. What a lucky man you are to have a publisher that can come up with such a mind-blowing trailer.
Alex- this looks awesome. I'm excited for you!
Your trailer is magnifique! I love the CGI. A very talented team you got behind your novel sir and I salute you. Every nerd fiber in my body wants to read this book.
Nice! Considering you said they had a small budget, they've done damn good :) Love it! I like that they've included scenes from the book in the trailer too.
Nicely done :) They may be a small publisher, but they rock the trailers. Every bit as good as CaassaStar.
Just when I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next, it ended quickly leaving me wanting more! The characters really came to life! I am so excited for you and can't wait to join in on the fun on Feb 28!
Angela, that's nice to hear! I just didn't want anyone expecting "Rango" quality.
Sia, I think a hundred now...?
Michael, then it's effective!
Thanks, everyone - wow!
Very cool trailer... you must be very proud:)
Awesome trailer Alex, congrats! I have an award for you, come by my blog to check it out! :)
I see you've heard this over 100 times already but I'll add one more, Alex - your video is totally awesome. You have a great team there who put this together. The voice is a great touch. Love it! Looking forward to your new book!
excellent stuff, Alex! Your publisher sounds great giving you a book trailer. Lucky you!
Thanks, everyone! Yes, they did a great job with the trailer.
Very cool, Alex! I like the view of the planet from space.
Neat stuff. Certainly makes me intrigued about the book. But I'll have to read the first one first. :)
I am sharing that on my facebook page, and definitely going to add it to my Pay It Forward post!
You Rock, Alex!
BTW - thanks for the comment on my last blog post. It seems like I'm so close to the finish, and yet I'm not there yet. It helps to have insight from someone who has been there and done that.
Super cool!!!!! :D
Tyrean, thank you! I really appreciate that. And glad I could say something intelligent to help you.
That was totally awesome! Need I say more? :)
LOVE IT and can't wait to read it...
Good job. Looks great. Best of luck.
That is way awesome!!! I just want to reach out and touch them. Congrats Alex! Hmm, I think you did't post on Monday either. See you tomorrow. :)
That is sooooo cool! I am thrilled for you, Alex!
Wow! That's amazing. Such a great trailer!
Thanks, David! I was stoked to see it.
Laila, I had a lazy day on Monday!
Congrats Alex! That was too awesome. I can't imagine how it must feel to see your work come to life like that. You must be so proud. Congrats again.

Holy freakin wicked cool, Alex! That is AWESOME! I loved it. And, and, there's a girl. YAY!!! Will there be kissing? LOL
Awesome book trailer Alex...Wow..wow...wow...:)
I wish I could get a copy soon...will it be available in Philippine bookstores soon?
That's so cool! I mean it! Awesome!
Jessica, it was cool to see the characters like that!
RaShelle, I don't kiss and tell.
Amity, I don't know.
Really cool! Congratulations :-)
Wow, that is amazing! I'm always in awe of the book trailers, but yours blew me away. I can't wait!!!
How fun, Alex! Animated even. Kewl.
How cool is that!? I <3 your booktrailers! I'm a amazed your publisher would even make one for you, lucky duck. ;)
Yes, I can see that you do have a female MC in there. No doubt. Lol. ;)
Sorry I'm late to this party Alex...that trailer is awesome! I had to watch it 3 times...the hi-def is too cool. I'm telling ya, get the movie deal in the works, it would be spectacular. Countin' the days to CassaFire!
Elizabeth, she is hard to miss!
Thnaks, Chuck! I'd be thrilled with a movie version, no doubt.
Ah, so COOL!! Congrats!!
*Two thumbs up*!! :)
Not just a trailer - a super awesome high quality video and voice trailer! Very cool. That Athee can really fill out a space uniform, eh?
Nicki, I have no problem with that!
Hot trailer, man! Looking forward to it.
amazing! did they create all the graphix from scratch?? crazy
FANTASTIC, Alex! Congrats on another great trailer.
Congrats Alex! That is so exciting. I just joined your blog. I'm also a writer, and need to get busy (blush). I'm sure I'll find some inspiration here. Woohoo!!!! Good for you!
Jeremy, I think they did.
Karen, glad to have you!
