Inspirations for The Treachery of Beautiful Things – Author Video 1

so in the run up to the launch of The Treachery of Beautiful Things on the 16th August, there’s a lot going on all over the webs, or so it seems. Not least here where I’ve been making author videos explaining some of the inspirations behind the story. The first one is here today – The Enchanted Forest. I shall just hide now as I am on there talking and being Irish I find such recordings of my ramblings mortifying! And yet I still do it.

There will be two more (unless I’m asked to make more – if you’ve any questions let me know) – one on The Greenman (Friday 10th) and one on The Ridgeway and Wayland’s Smithy (Wednesday 15th). They still have to be finished as the Irish weather has not been cooperating. In fact they will probably be filmed indoors at this rate. But this one was made on the last day of summer (or so it seems) although it got a bit windy in places so bear with me.

Oh look, the sun has just come out here. Careful, it may be a trap…


Just to remind everyone that the booktrailer went live on The Story Siren‘s website yesterday along with a giveaway. It’s now up here as well on my Treachery page. It’ll pop up soon on the Treachery of Beautiful Things facebook page and my Tumblr soon (sheesh, I’ll have to go through this post and link everything!)

It’s day 2 of the Itching for Books blog tour with an interview at The Library Mouse and a review at Claire Reads. There are giveaways at all those sites, and at the ones from yesterday as well so go check them out.
