Launching the Ice Trekker book trailer

Ice Trekker, my first teen book for MuseItUp, is out a week today.It's an adventure set in the icy wastes of Kr√łnagar, where the Grells are facing a bleak future.

Blackfrost, their last source of fuel, is running out. Food is scarce, jobs are hard to find, and worse … the greedy Minax under evil Empress Koya are threatening to invade from the south. For the sake of his family, young Midge leaves his cosy home in search of a job and treks north to the mysterious frozen wilderness.

Monsters. Myths. Mayhem. What more could you ask?


I'd love to share the video trailer with you. Here's the link.


Or here it is uploaded onto Blogger. What do you think? Comments welcome! You can find out more on the companion blog.
