Swell’s Book Trailer: 4 Minutes from Life at Sea
In case you didn’t get to see it at one of the book tour events, here’s a look at the short film from Patagonia Books, made by Chris Malloy and Kellen Keene, as a trailer for the book. I love how it turned out! It’s making was an adventure in itself! Thank you Chris & […]

Instead it lingers about you like you’re constantly standing in hot soup. By 8am it’s blazing and it doesn’t let up […]
