Now that the EW exclusive has expired, I can embed the book trailer here:




The trailer was great fun. I met the lead actress (Kaat) at FaerieWorlds in 2011, and through her I got to know the fight choreographer (Youval) who is the male lead. He works with other fight choreographers as part of company in The Netherlands called Orde der Noorderwind. The whole project was filmed on site at a Dutch castle. The glass ball artist was friends with the actress, so the whole thing was this very interactive connection between artists I knew & artists they knew. 

The song--which inspired the book--was lent to us by the band (Five Finger Death Punch) when they heard they'd inspired the book... & then EW wanted to reveal it. It's been very fun. I consulted with the team on everything from script edits (they had a full script with camera angles outlined) to costume design to picking the set location to second-by-second edits.

Of course, in addition to the awesomeness of the project, it was surreal to see my world brought to life by talented people. They captured so much of the feel of my book perfectly.

I'm sending much much love to the dozens of people involved, especially Youval Kuipers (Belias & fight coordinator), Ticho Welschen (director), Kaat Geevers (Aya), Gregal Vissers (Kaleb), & Rourke Pouw (Sol). You all exceeded my hopes. XOXO.
