blo Teens Read and Write: SOUL PURPOSE BOOK TRAILER

Tuesday, August 18, 2009


Mary Lindsey has written a paranormal romance, one of my favorite genres, called Soul Purpose. It's not out yet but I'll be sure to let you know when it is. But she just put out a book trailer on YouTube and I wanted to share it because I think it's great. Soul Purpose is about...

Sixteen-year-old Lenzi Arnold assumes she's going crazy when she begins hearing voices. After discovering the cause, she wishes it were that simple.Lenzi learns she has the ability to interact with spirits and help them resolve issues that keep them earth-bound. She discovers that she is a recycled soul who has done this for many lifetimes with her protector, Alden.The problem is that she has past-life amnesia and doesn't remember any of it—especially Alden, who acts like they are best friends or maybe something more…and she's not sure she can handle her own problems, much less those of pushy dead people.Alden has to convince Lenzi of her special purpose before the Intercessor Council discovers there is something wrong and discontinues her soul. He must also prepare her to battle Nicaragua Smith, an evil spirit who has haunted her since the Civil War.SOUL PURPOSE follows Lenzi through her struggle to reconcile the rebellious, underachieving girl she is, with the powerful, confident woman she was in her past lives.

Tell me what you think and if you want to give her direct feedback, head over to Mary's blog post. She also has a cool website where you can learn more about her and also follow her on twitter.

What do you think of book trailers in general? What do you like in them and what do you not? Do you have any favorites? Put in a link if you do!

I'm not much of a book trailer person myself. But the summary you posted up sounds really good and interesting! This book looks like it's going to be a great read. Looking forward to your review :)

btw, Bob looks like such a cuddly kitty. :)

As I talk to more people, I'm finding that it's kind of like a dog/cat person thing. You're either a book trailer person or not. I like them...when they're good of course. But I don't like to see the faces of the characters.

And I was inspired to buy 'The Summoning' when I saw the book trailer for 'The Awakening' on YouTube. TAke a look at it at and then I bought 'The Awakening,' so it worked on me.

Thanks for the kind words about Bob, the cat. He was a sweetie...and a snuggler! And glad you think Mary's book looks good. It's just the kind of urban fantasy stuff I like so I can't wait till it comes out!

Hi, Alyssa. Thanks so much for the kind post. Soul Purpose was a blast to write. I'm not much of a book trailer person, but this company was easy to deal with and came highly recommended, so I hired them. It would have taken me way to long to make one myself. I'd rather free up my time to write...and check out friends' blogs. Thanks again.
