Book Trailer

Remember that little Book Trailer competition we launched a few months ago, with our friends at Waterstone's? Remember, we were looking for a minute-long ad to play in UK cinemas, promoting the books?

If you remember that, you may also remember the fact that we chose not one, but TWO winners- Liam Fitzpatrick and Danielle Drew- and combined their ideas to make the Best Thing Ever In The World ™.
Remember all that? Oh I AM glad. Because, drum roll please, the trailer is ready.

The reason that this was a “UK only” competition, and the reason the trailer will only be shown in UK cinemas (take a look on the blog tomorrow and there'll be a list), is simply because Waterstone's UK came to us with the proposal. But does that mean you minions living outside of the UK will never be able to see it? Pfffft. How unfair would THAT be? The fact is, we’re putting it online FIRST so that you, my faithful minions, will be able to devour it like the insatiable little zombie-readers that you are.

You’re going to need a bucket as you watch this, because your brain WILL melt. That’s an official health warning.

Dragona Pine said...

Well tease him anyway...

Mary Hiashi said...

I think it's a cave.

Dragona Pine said...

Hmm...

Ebony Orvil said...

Why tease him?!
He is honorable if he loves two people from Harry Potter (as long as they are not evil).

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

@Dragona
NO!

Lunar Tears said...

And Octa writes amazing poems

And I've added "Annoying Dragona" to my interests

Ebony Orvil said...

Hmm...

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

No. Octaboona is better off placing his affections elsewhere.

Dragona Pine said...

Why tease me? I am honorable? But yet they tease me about everything...

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

Hmm...

Ebony Orvil said...

No, just the ... and the hair.

Ebony Orvil said...

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

Yes. You are honorable Dragon...and cute.

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

Well....Octaboona is still very new. I've teased him lots since he has been here.

Dragona Pine said...

Ginny and Evanna Lynch...

Ebony Orvil said...

I spelled Edgley wrong!

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

@Lunar

Octaboona should not wast his time with them anyways.
:)

Ebony Orvil said...

No! FDon't say the actor/actress names! That makes Harry Potter less real! And in my point of view Harry potter is REAL!!

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

I mean I like the twins and Snape too! I've always felt bad for Snape and thought he was brave to go through what he did.

Lunar Tears said...

I'm having a little rant about how my English teacher gave us 5 minutes to solve Einstein's riddle

Dragona Pine said...

I don't even know what Einstein's riddle is...

Dragona Pine said...

Where has everyone gone?

Lunar Tears said...

The question is: "Who owns the fish?"

Hints:
The Brit lives in the red house.
The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
The Dane drinks tea.
The green house is on the left of the white house.
The green house's owner drinks coffee.
The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
The owner of yellow house smokes Dunhill.
The man living in the center house drinks milk.
The Norwegian lives in the first house.
The man who smokes blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who smokes Dunhill.
The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.
The German smokes Prince.
The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.

Lunar Tears said...

THIS is Einstein's riddle

He said only 2% of the population would be able to solve it without guessing

Dragona Pine said...

No one owns a fish...

Lunar Tears said...

Dragona, somebody DOES own the fish...

I just have no idea who it is...

Mary Hiashi said...

No one owns the fish?

Dragona Pine said...
