The coming attractions

Later this morning, I'll be in front of the camera for the book trailer.

What's a book trailer, Jonathan? That's a good question, Internet. Pull up your office chair or subway seat and I'll tell you. A book trailer is typically a short video from two to four minutes that introduces the concept of a book and, on occasion, the author who wrote it.

They can be filmed like movie previews (such as Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters -- which I don't want to ruin, but has sea monsters) or be animated (a la The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman).

As for what LEGO: A Love Story will look like on video -- that will be decided today. I know there will be LEGO bricks and you'll get a chance to see where I build and write. But other than that, who knows? This is is LEGO after all, so anything is possible...
