On to the topic of today’s post. I think I’ve mentioned before that I write steamy, wickedly funny urban fantasy/paranormal romance with plenty of action. It’s an olio that’s hard to pin down. Like with the movie The Princess Bride, that means it’s hard to market.

Too much action for a simple romance. Too much romance for an action book. Too much humor for a gritty paranormal. Too much grit for a hilarious romcom. Too much sex for a romcom too.

So when it came to ordering a trailer for paranormal romance Mind Mates, well, I was expecting a mishmash.

Instead, I got this breathtaking video.

The humor is utterly missing from the trailer. But wow, I’d buy the book just from the beauty of it. I did wonder if I should ask for changes to the trailer, to add the humor, but my husband said, “Let readers discover that as a bonus.”

What do you think? Was he right?

Mind Mates: When a powerful wizard prince comes out of hiding to save his sister, he is forced to team with a pretty shifter—one with ugly, dangerous powers of her own. As vengeful enemies close in, a forbidden attraction flaming between them, the two race to find a mysterious key.

    Mary, this is stunning! What a brilliant idea. I love the music, too. And I agree with your hubby that the humor will be a bonus.

      Hi Edie,

      Well, if you agree with Gregg, that nails it! I never quite know how to market my stuff–you remember one book I just separated the four qualities out and did a promo for each. But maybe I’m overthinking it.

      Hey, wait, it’s me. Of COURSE I’m overthinking it, lol.
