This is the second book trailer for my novel This Bright River, and it was put together by the inimitable Susie Kirkwood, an artist here in Chicago. This Bright River has a love story in it. Whereas the first trailer focused on Ben’s various problems in the first half of the book, this one is a representation of a nightmare Lauren, the second narrator, is having trouble shaking. The nightmare plays a bigger role in the plot later in the book, but this is the reader’s first time hearing about it.
Based on how the book is set up, it seemed right to me to have one for each central character. And they can serve as nice bookends for a totally bizarre summer. Thanks to everyone who’s supported the book! I’m going back to work at the Pancake House.
Oh, and this: narration for this one was provided by Susie’s sister, Chicago writer Jill Summers.
The circle is complete.
I mean pancakes.
