We finally finished the video book trailer for Three Blonde Mice, and it’s a lot of fun. (Be sure to stick around for the credits! They’re the best part of the video!)
Matt Senecal, the farm guru at Arethusa Farm Dairy in Litchfield, CT, was a great sport. He not only let me milk a cow named Viona but he played straight man and answered all my crazy questions. The idea was to take readers back to the research I did for the book last summer about “haycations” and what goes on at farms, so I hope everyone will take their own haycation this summer or fall. You can spend a week on a farm, as my characters did, or you can go for the day or stay overnight. You’ll learn about the food you eat – I mean really learn about what people mean when they say “locally sourced” – and you’ll get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. What could be better?
If you do plan to spend any time on a farm, please take a pic and upload it to my Facebook or Twitter page using the hashtags #ThreeBlondeMice and #DairyPrincess.
