Sarah M. Anderson on Cowboys and LEGO: A Book Trailer Reveal

Hello! You see we have Sarah M. Anderson starting off February with us – there has been some build up of her A Real Cowboy book trailer reveal, and it premieres HERE! AT ALBTALBS! \o/ WHEE! She’s also got a giveaway too. 😀

A Real Cowboy: Brick by Brick! Book Trailer Reveal!

I was talking about book trailers with a friend of mine a few months ago and was lamenting that most people seemed to use their kids’ Barbie dolls. But I don’t have a daughter or Barbies. I have a son and Legos. Lots and lots of Legos.

Then it hit me. I HAVE LEGOS.

Of course, my son wouldn’t just let me have full access to his Legos (even though I paid for them) without some input. So we formed a little company, Mother & Son Productions, and started making book trailers together.

Our first trailer was for Mystic Cowboy. The biggest challenge was, um, ‘arranging’ the Legos for certain scenes without, you know, emotionally scarring my son for life.

So here’s Mystic Cowboy: Brick by Brick!

The Mystic Cowboy book trailer was such as success that we decided to make more! (I’m also hoping that one day, he wins an Oscar for cinematography and takes his loving mother to the Oscars. Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?) In fact, I’m going to be offering up one Brick by Brick! Book trailer for the Brenda Novak Diabetes Auction in a few months. Yes, you too could have your very own Mother & Son book trailer!

So without further ado, I present the latest entry into the Mother & Son oeuvre, A Real Cowboy: Brick by Brick!

What do you think? One lucky reader will win a e-copy of A Real Cowboy and everyone who comments will be entered to win a Simple Touch Nook!

Now that she’s found him, how can she let go?
Producer Thalia Thorne’s career is on the line. She’s promised to lure James Robert Bradley back to the limelight, no matter what it takes. But once in Montana, she sees that J.R. has built a new life for himself–as a real-life cowboy–and Thalia finds it hard to resist the man he’s become….

Then a blizzard strikes. Suddenly they’re alone, with only body heat to keep them warm.When the snow melts, she’ll have to choose: go back to the big city–or sacrifice everything for the man she can’t let go.

A Real Cowboy is available for order!

About the Author: Award-winning author Sarah M. Anderson may live east of the Mississippi River, but her heart lies out west on the Great Plains. With a lifelong love of horses and two history teachers for parents, it wasn’t long before her characters found themselves out in South Dakota among the Lakota Sioux.  She loves to put people from two different worlds into new situations and to see how their backgrounds and cultures take them someplace they never thought they’d go.

When not helping out at school or walking her rescue dogs, Sarah spends her days having conversations with imaginary cowboys and American Indians, all of which is surprisingly well-tolerated by her wonderful husband and son. You can learn more about Sarah at her website.

    Really fun, adorable videos! I especially enjoyed the Mystic Cowboy one, I think the expression on the Madeline lego’s face was perfect. I think she scowled a lot during that book! 🙂 Really looking forward to reading A Real Cowboy. Glad you could stop by at tartsweet & debut your new video! Buy your son some more legos, he was so sweet to share and help!

    These are awesome Sarah! Wit and charm and enough plot build-up to make me want to know more…I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure A Real Cowboy was a book I’d pick up off-hand, but the storyline you presented in the video hooked me 🙂 Nice work…and what a great idea to auction up a video! (Where did you get the music? Do you know some talented peeps, or is there a “stock song” site like there are “stock photo” sites?)

    1. Sarah M. Anderson

      Aww, you’re making me blush, Melonie! As for the music, that’s Haven Yates, husband of Harlequin Presents author Maisey Yates. He’s *very* talented and also did the music for Maisey’s latest video here

    How do these incredible video events keep coming??? I was all a-twitter waiting for A Real Cowboy brick by brick. Tell The Kid, if his Mom won’t buy him Legos, MiMi will, but he has to take me to the Academy Awards, too.Two cinematic events of the century. Cannot wait for the third.

    Sarah, I loved the video for Mystic Cowboy, and love that you’ve created one for A Real Cowboy! Can’t wait to see what you and your clever son come up with in the future! Wooohoo!

        Really?? AWESOME! I think we haven’t gotten any Lego motorcycles yet–we do however, have an extensive collection of Star Wars vehicles (though sadly, not the Death Star or the Star Destroyer yet…) and a growing collection of Ninjago stuff… So, when you’re ready for your sci-fi/futuristic stuff, we’re at your service 😉

    OMG, that’s so cute! I think it’s especially neat that you & your son are doing this together. How old is your son?!

    Those videos were really great,a lot of fun to watch. You’ll have to see if you can get your son a job making vdeos. Can’t wait to see the video with the Lego dudes and motorcycles.

    1. Sarah M. Anderson

      Thanks, Joanne! I’m really excited about them–but I’m NOT excited about the part where my husband thought I was done with the motorcycle Legos and sorted them all out! He broke up the set! ARGH!
