Images in This Book Trailer Will Make You Emotional

When people ask, “What is your book about?” or “Is your book any good?” I get tongue tied. How can I explain the depth and emotion of my own story in just a sentence or two? How can I explain the sorrows and tragedies that my Mother suffered?

The truth is, I don’t really think there is a short answer to describe Keiko’s Journey but I’ve always believed that images help tell the best stories. This is why I created a book trailer for Keiko’s Journey. It wasn’t an easy process. As I sorted through my mother’s tattered photos, I had many teary moments but I was determined to produce a minute and a half of images that hit the core of my story.

I’d like to ask you for a favor. Please watch my book trailer. If you were touched by it, will you send it to your friends who have not read Keiko’s Journey yet?
