Through the pages of History with Oveta Culp Hobby

Recently I had the pleasure of creating my first book trailer for a biography. While this alone was enough to excite me, the fact that it was going to be for Oveta Culp Hobby made me all the more so. I mean, it could have been Abraham Lincoln, or Martin Luther King Jr., or even the holy grail of bio’s, Kim Kardashian. But no, this was to be for Oveta Culp Hobby!

Wait, who’s that you ask? My point exactly.

I could have ended up creating a book trailer for “yet another biography of…(insert famous person’s name here)” but instead I had the joy of learning as I created. Who was this person whom I had never heard of, and how was it that they were deserving of a published biography? My interest piqued, I set out to learn.

I turned my gaze to the all knowing magic mirror on my lap named Google, and asked my question: “Oh great and all knowing Google, who is this person Oveta Culp Hobby?” Google, as usual, did not disappoint. Numerous sites came up, referencing her and even noting some of her (as it turns out) MANY life accomplishments. What I found strange though, was the distinct lack of any biographical literature on her, barring of course the book I was to create a trailer for.

As I scrolled through the long list of her accomplishments, I could only ponder at how I hadn’t heard of her before. Finally, in one particular article, I read something about Oveta herself being somewhat shy to the idea of having people write about her. Debra L. Winegarten, the book’s author, was kind enough to send me a breakdown of Oveta’s life achievements to help me and as I continued to learn about the incredible life of Oveta Culp Hobby, I found myself thinking that here was a woman whose story needed told, whose strength of character and service to her country needed to be shared.

So, if you are in the same boat I was in, asking the same question “Who is this Oveta person, anyway?” – then go ahead and check out this new book trailer from Ink in Motion. Then go buy the book and read more about this amazing woman!

Or, ask the all knowing, magic mirror, Google. But be forewarned, he’s got about 57,700 answers.

A Merry Challenge

Here’s a fun poem from author Donna Grahmann, just right for the season! Read on and please follow her link.

A Merry Challenge
By Donna Grahmann

‘Twas just before Christmas, and all through the house,
No creature was stirring, except for the mouse.
The stockings were hung from the book shelf with cheer.
Atop sat the anthology that I held so dear.

The cover was bold and studded with stars,
Some were so tiny, others bigger than Mars.
The galaxy mapping the pages within,
Created for readers, a whimsical grin.

In my old computer that captured the glories,
Of fiction, on essays, poems, and short stories,
Out of the speakers there came a commotion,
As the cat pawed the keyboard, Jaws said, “Ink In Motion!”

Your challenge is clear; it’s to pounce, paw, or click,
And help us go viral with our YouTube flick!
Each time you hear it, you’ll know what I think;
Another awesome person clicked our book trailer link!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Please multi-click and share!

The World Without a Future: World Without End book 1

She was born the day the world ended…

Nurrin has lived her entire life with zombies—trapped behind walls meant to keep them safe. She’s mostly happy there. But when a zombie horde breach the walls of her Haven, she has to trust her brother, Collin, and his best friend to keep her alive.

He just wants his past to die…

Finn O’Malley has given up on voicing warnings that are ignored. No one cares that the zombies are changing. Now all that matters is keeping Collin and Nurrin safe from what’s outside the walls of a Haven. But when Nurrin’s best friend picks up a contact infection, he agrees to get the medicine needed to save his life. Forced together, relying on each other in a strange Haven, zombies aren’t the most dangerous thing they’re facing.

In their world, only one thing remains true: everything ends in blood.

Feed: Newsflesh Trilogy Book 1

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives – the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will get out, even if it kills them.

Darkfever: Fever series book 1

MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.

When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….
