Phew! The weekend’s finally here! I hope everyone had a great work week. Now it’s time to kick back, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy a good book trailer.
If you’ve popped in the past few days than you’ve had the pleasure of reading Samantha and Lucien’s interviews. These superb characters are straight out of Laura Kaye’s, FOREVER FREED. If you’ve heard of The Newlywed Game, you HAVE to check out these interviews as they were designed to see how well Samantha and Lucien really know one another. Too curious how it went? Then check out LUCIEN’S INTERVIEW now! From there you can read Samantha’s.

So are you ready to learn more about the trailer for FOREVER FREED? Good! I’m going to hand it over to Laura Kaye again so that she can share a little about the creation behind this beautiful trailer.
From Laura's lips to my blog…
“Forever Freed is about a reclusive, empathic vampire who falls in love with a woman he planned to kill and her young daughter, then must fight his ancient guilt, bloodlust, lie by omission, and an old vampire rival who threatens everything he holds dear. I made the trailer for Forever Freed after taking a book trailer workshop through the PRO section of the RWA. I was really psyched to try my hand at it, and fortunate that the model featured on the book’s cover had other stock images available, so I could show my hero, Lucien Demarco, in different ways in the trailer. As soon as I heard the music, I knew it was right for this story. Not only is the music moody and yearning, but the violin in it couldn’t be more perfect as Lucien plays the violin, and his music and instrument are a really important part of his characterization. I was thrilled with how it came together! So thrilled, in fact, I wrote an extensive how-to post on my blog detailing everything I’d learned about how to make book trailers.”

Sky here. Fantastic book trailer, Laura. I loved the music! Well done.
A bit more about FOREVER FREED...
A heart can break, even one that no longer beats.
I stalk my new neighbors, a single mother and her child, drawn by the irresistible scent of their joy and love. I crave their blood, starved for some healing respite from my ancient grief. Now to lure them into my grasp.
But they surprise me. Little Olivia accepts me without fear or reservation—talking, smiling, offering innocent affection that tugs at my long-lost humanity. Her mother, Samantha, seeks me out when she should stay away, offering sweet friendship, and calling to the forgotten man within me. They lure me instead.
Ah, Dio, Lucien, run and spare them while you can…
What's being said about FOREVER FREED...
Marissa, Sizzling Hot Book Reviews, 5/5 Hearts!: “Forever Freed has something a little different....packed with memorable characters...very distinctive and well written....Laura Kaye pulls out all the stops to torment the characters before the ending and does it well enough that I really got into it. Don’t know about you, but I love it when the author can get me into a story or character enough to fully feel their emotions. Boy, did I this time....more than just a paranormal story, you get exceptional entertainment!”
Tishia, Paranormal Opinion, 5/5 Stars!: “Really loved this book! I definitely connected with these characters....Forever Freed has everything I could want in a book all combined nicely in a pretty little package. It's about love, passion, family, forgiveness... It's a heartwarming story that will have you feeling just about every emotion there is. I laughed and I cried, which I don't do often.”
BUY FOREVER FREED.
