Sneak Peek!

Okay, I can’t resist. Here is the new trailer John and I just completed for Secrets She Left Behind. Right now, it’s only up on You Tube. Soon I’ll have it on my website and many, many other places on the web, and it will show up again on the blog once the book is released (May 26th–coming up soon!) Please let me know if any of you have trouble viewing this or it looks “strange” in any way. We’re still ironing out the bugs. Enjoy!

    Diane, the suspense is killing me!!
    Love the trailer! Thanks for sharing with us.

    Very good job. Not at all what the British call “Lord Privy Seal” (see 5 minutes along this video for an explanation). I had trouble reading some of the white words on a light background, though.

    Thanks for the feedback! Rob, we kept your “Lord Privy Seal” feelings about blogs in mind as we worked on it. 🙂

    Wow, very intriguing!

    Omigosh Diane and John, the trailer took my breath away!…BEAUTIFUL job! (-O:

    okay, this is disconcerting! I finished Breaking the Silence about 15 mins ago! Why would anyone suggest ‘updating’ the story? Is “Casablanca” less compelling because of the time frame? leave it as is.

  9. Diane Chamberlain on March 10, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    I’m with you, Nell. I’ve decided against any changes (except for fixing something in the story that has always bothered me. It’s impossible for an author not to tamper with her work when given a second chance. . . ).

    You will have to eventually tell us what you “fixed” or we will have to get second copies of the book…I am so curious now…

    Fantastic!! Beautiful!! Trailer is Perfect!! My book has been pre-ordered for a month or more – this makes me more anxious to get it.

  12. brenda on March 11, 2009 at 5:25 pm

    I understand what you are saying about the title…Breaking the Silence and Before the Storm-same initials…I also have gotten confused telling my friends and students to buy WHILE MY SISTER SLEEPS by Delinsky–and told them THE SECRETS SHE LEFT BEHIND…I have told them that to switch the authors’ names…one out in Feb. and the other in May…I don’t know why those two names are confusing to me…I’ll get it right.

    The trailer is perfect! I know the book will be just wonderful.

    You and John are an amazing team! Congratulations on the beautiful work. Since I have all your books, perhaps it’s time for me to begin to acquire some of John’s art.

    Thanks for being a faithful reader, Hope. It IS fun to share life with another creative person. He still doesn’t have his art photography site up, but you can see some of it at I think he’s sooo good. 🙂
