Second Life has a book trailer. My daughter made it for me. This is the story of how it happened:
Over the weekend, my darling daughter told me she wanted to set up a lemonade stand to earn some money. I told her that I’d read an article about the county cracking down on non-permitted lemonade stands. While a good idea, I noted it’s not as easy as it used to be to hang out a shingle. Then, we had the following exchange:
Me: Maybe I could hire you to do some stuff for my writing business.
Her: Oooh, yeah! (She jumps up) Let me get you my resume.
Me: (raising eyebrow) You have a resume?
Her: (bites lip, pauses) Yeah, as soon as you help me make one.
While I wouldn’t advise this job-seeking strategy with anyone but mom, it happened to work. I hired her. (A second piece of advice: Do not put on your resume that you’ll work for 25 cents per day — even with mom, as I seriously considered taking her up on it). Anyway, she was eager to do something. I told her I’d been too busy to make a Second Life trailer, so she picked that as her first duty. And here is the result.
P.S. I’ll take the blame for the lack of book cover image. She was ready to finish and I didn’t have time to walk her through formatting the book cover to fit in the YouTube space. But we can add it later.
