Technology allows authors who've never even been to Hollywood, Florida, never mind Hollywood, California, to create short videos called trailers to use in promoting their books. Some are good but way too many are just boring. Entertainment publicity specialist Jennifer Perry explores the value and usage of trailers, plus how to make yours grab the reader's attention.
Aral Bereux, author of dystopian war and urban fantasy novels, has the most exciting trailers and visual teasers for her bestselling series, The Juliana Rae Chronicles. Aral is the featured guest on this episode and will talk about trailers, her books, and answer questions from callers.
If you're planning a trailer for your book, or wondering why yours isn't producing interest, you must tune in to this show.

Imagine being in middle school, a 12 year old aspiring writer. You become brave and show your Librarian your very first full manuscript. The reaction you receive is less than supportive. Shandy Kurth was that 12 year old. I for one am thankful that she did not let this occurance stop her dreams from happening. We will touch base on how she overcame that hurdle and talk about her journey to publishing five books to date! We will discuss how this author finds time to be out in the work force, a wife, a mother and then finds the time to be an author as well.

On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Transformers: Age of Extinction! Is it on par with the first three? Is it any better than the first three? Might it actually be worse? Do the Dinobots actually make an appearance? Is it time for Michael Bay to walk away from the franchise? Can Michael Bay actually be considered an auteur, or is he merely a skilled technician? Is the franchise beyond redemption at this point? Is the source material too inane to be made palatable for adults?
We’ll also be reviewing the sci-fi actioner Snowpiercer! Can it be considered a modern day fable? Is it on par with other dystopian sci-fi classics like The Matrix and The Road Warrior? Has director Bong Joon-ho managed to upstage his Hollywood brethren? Has Chris Evans become one of our most dependable leading men? Can he now be considered a fanboy favorite? Does this film show that groundbreaking sci-fi can be made on a meager budget?
Lastly, we’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Do the Right Thing! It is still relevant after all these years? Is it evenhanded in its portrayal of race relations in America? Were critics right to fear that it might set off race riots around the country? Can Spike Lee still make films of this caliber? Is “Fight the Power” the greatest rap song to ever appear on a motion picture soundtrack? Does the film offer an accurate portrait of Koch-era New York?

Author/Noevelist Sheldon Greene will talk about his novels and his latest Creation After the Parch.
After the Parch is a fast-paced, vivid, dystopian fantasy with a chilling resemblance to the way we are, and a vision of what we might become. It's a well-crafted story and the plot flows naturally from one crisis to another, with three-dimensional characters right up to the taut and positive climax.
