Yesterday, I was informed of the following by my six-year-old:
"Mom, if you were in cat years, you'd be dead."
Um . . . thanks, cutie. I can already feel my joints creaking . . .
Fun stuff: We're only ONE month out from the release of Tower of Strength! Yes!
So even though the release is a little way out, I thought I'd put up a fun doohickey video thing I put together about it.
Keep in mind I'm not a photographer. When hubs and I took these photos, it was on a research-gathering trip to Manti. It wasn't until much later that it occurred to me to use some of them this way.
(Have to say that it was awesome picking out buildings were certain events happen in the book, and a few of them are in the video.)
One of my favorite parts is the music. It's an arrangement of "Come Thou Fount" with some "If You Could Hie to Kolob" thrown in. It's arranged and performed by the talented Sher. (Be sure to check out her music website here.)

Very nice! I'm excited to read it!
I can't wait! Those are two of my favorite hymns! The Manti temple is one of the few Utah temples I have been inside of--just so utterly gorgeous!
You did a great job, Annette!
I am so excited!! I can't wait until your book comes out!
That was really cool to watch. What an exciting time for you!
What a great primer. Loved it so much. It makes you just want it now Annette. Great job. And Sher is the perfect choice. Can't wait.
WOW...Sherrie is talented isn't she!!! AMAZING video Annette!!! I am secretly going to be obsessed with your writing and your stories...I can already tell! :)
I'm excited for your book to come out!
Saturday I finished reading the PDF you sent me. Great job!
I'm looking forward to the blog tour as well!
What a great looking video.
I love that video! Esp the music. Can't wait to read it!!
Just seeing that was bringing tears to my eyes. It looks like a very touching story, although I have a really hard time reading ones where spouses have died.
I'm looking forward to reading your books. At some point I'm going to have to get hold of them somewhere, as I checked our library system and they don't have any here. Which one do you recommend starting with?
Wow! 6 year olds know just how to burst your bubble, don't they?
I loved your video montage. You did a perfect job!
That's super cool!
Great video. I thought the photography was wonderfully fitting. I've been making myself wait to read it until we're moved next week, but I don't think I can!
Very nice. that is one of my favorite songs.
That was an awesome video! I just finished House on the Hill this afternoon and I'm eager to get my paws on Tower.
Loved the video! What a great introduction to the book. And the photos + the music made a great match!
This is so exciting! And I just want to publicly thank you for letting me put my song on your video. It's an honor to be associated with you and priviledge to call you my friend.
p.s. Thanks for increasing my traffic, too!
Okay, if you're old, then I'm really in trouble.
The video is lovely! I'm a little misty already. Those are two of my favorite hymns as well; nice job!
Beautiful piece. Can't wait to read the book.
I'm starting tonight and I'm excited!
That was simply beautiful Annette!
You are just too talented for words these days (get it--I'm such a punny girl) Way to go, I'm excited to read it!
I saw this over on facebook and loved it.
Can't wait to dig into my copy!
Great post! Sorry I haven't been over in a few! Work has been way crazy! ♥ Hugs :)
How exciting! And I'm glad you're not living cat years. I'd probably be dead, too. Gotta love kids. :)
You are not old. GREAT VIDEO. I love both those songs!
