MALCOLM AT MIDNIGHT Trailer and Giveaway!



In two months (just in time for the start of school!) my middle grade novel, MALCOLM AT MIDNIGHT, will be in bookstores. Needless to say, I'm a little excited. Anyway, to help send Malcolm on his way, I’ve been tinkering on a book trailer. It's been done for a little while, but the end of the school year has been so crazy, I haven't done much about it. Until now! Project Mayhem seemed the perfect place to post it (try saying that ten times fast!). Anyway, to help celebrate, I'm also giving away an ARC. Please enter below.

So, without further ado . . . here it is: MALCOLM AT MIDNIGHT, a funny middle grade mystery starring classroom pets at midnight, complete with ghostly shrieks, school hijinks, instances of valor, the occasional cheese puff, and . . . footnotes.

Thanks for watching!

  2. I really enjoyed this book trailer! I think they can be a very effective way to draw attention to a story.

    This book is one I definitely want to read!

  3. Book trailers vary in effectiveness with their quality. This one is great! I think the fact that it is so simple helps. I've seen trailers that took on more than they could handle and ended up looking very unprofessional. This is a great example of how, sometimes, less is more.

    1. I agree, Connie. I was hesitant to do anything too flashy because I wasn't sure I could do it well. And I'm kind of a "basic" person anyway--I like cheese pizza, vanilla ice cream, so it's fitting. :-)

  4. ADORABLE! I'm in love. And I firmly believe trailers under a minute are the best. Well done!

    1. Thanks, Caroline. I'm a fan of the under a minute rule, too, but it's HARD when it's your own story!

  9. I love MG book trailers. In my classroom I have Trailer Tuesday when I show book trailers and I also have a MG one!

  10. I love hearing this, Jill. I show a trailer or two at the start of all my 4th and 5th grade classes in my library. I'm amazed at how my students remember the books from them.

  11. Love the trailer and the music! I would have loved this book as a kid. We are just now reading The Cricket in Times Square as a lunchtime readalout, and my boys are loving it - maybe we'll have to read Malcolm next... ;)

  13. I think a well done book trailer can be as powerful as a movie trailer. I'm thinking about having some of my students create one for a favorite book.
