Submit your video for 2011 Selection process starts December 15th 2011
Thank you Jesus, Mr. Troy Johnson, Judges, and each book lover who made
the book trailer for Airing Grandma’s Laundry and other hush hush family
secrets the first place winner. I am confident that once the book is
released this Spring 2011 it will also be a best seller!
Airing Grandma’s Laundry and other hush hush family secrets is set in the late 1950’s to the 1960’s, where in the social roles were more defined in black culture. I wanted to delve into old school fiction when what Grandma said was the law of the land. But also to expose some of the secrets that every family has and keeps.
MAKING OF THE BOOK TRAILER:
First I contacted companies that wanted to charge me outrageous fees because it was a period piece. Once I spoke to my Writing Instructor who also does screen plays he connected me with a camera man Mr. Tommy Riggins. Tommy told me I had what it took to direct it myself. So I wrote the script, searched for my location in my Grandmothers old neighborhood, went to thrift stores and found the clothing, asked my mechanic to drive his car and stopped a man who turned out to be a preacher on the street and asked him to help me out by allowing his car to be in the shoot and we set a date. I enlisted people from the area to be in the trailer along with friends and family including my baby girl in the basket. The music was done by Professor Harrison. My son Chance helped me direct and ensured all props were in place. From start to finish it took us about two hours.
I know this book trailer will help in book promotions and future sales. Book readers are looking for books that can take them back to a simpler time. Airing Grandma’s Laundry is old school fiction. Airing Grandma’s Laundry is for mature readers to reflect and remember, young readers to have an option to urban fiction, for youngins’ to read to glimpse what really went on in Grandma and Great-Grandma hey day.

A young minister goes after a beautiful demonized seductress, who preys on rich men, but is totally unprepared for what happens next when she sets her sights on him.
THE GATEKEEPER is a gripping tale of the fierce and strategic spiritual war raging between the kingdom of light and the forces of darkness for the soul of the demonized temptress, Desiree--once a victim of severe childhood abuse. This battle comes to a dramatic climax when the two opposing forces meet for a final showdown at Desiree’s home. It is here Joshua, his father, Pastor Dawson, and their team wrestle against principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness in this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places through the tried and anointed ritual of an exorcism.
MAKING OF THE BOOK TRAILER: Had a fantastic team of
actors, actresses, production people, and team members working together to
take this story and pitch it on film to give viewers an opportunity to
become acquainted with the book—The Gatekeeper. The book is being advertised
in U.S. and U.K. and the trailer played in movie theatres across the U.S. in
October, November, and December 2010.
