Frank Beddor takes 'Seeing Redd' to bestsellers list with multimedia
Author Frank Beddor, who has
turned heads with his scintillating take on Lewis Carroll’s
classic novel "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland," has launched a bevy
of multimedia offerings that could represent the next wave in author
promotions. Check out some of the things he did for his latest novel
"Seeing Redd" that has helped make it a smash hit -- his second book to
hit the NY Times Bestsellers list in two years.
Beddor, a former
producer of films such as "There’s Something about Mary," saw potential
for his story beyond the black and white, two-dimensional page. He made
an amazing special effects movie trailer for "Seeing Redd" that blows
away just about any book trailer we’ve seen yet. Check it out
"Seeing Redd" is a continuation of the sensation Beddor caused last
year with his revelatory debut novel "The Looking Glass Wars," in which
he took a beloved tale and turned it on its head by revealing an
alternate reality of Wonderland.
In addition, Beddor is expanding "The Looking Glass Wars" experience
this fall through a cross-platform of multi-media entertainment:
novels, comic books (a graphic novel came out on Sept. 26), a scrapbook
that launches in November, an online interactive game (September), and
a soundtrack that’s available now.
Explaining the scope of Beddor’s various related projects, publicist Megan Beatie told WORD’N’BASS.com
that each one is specifically designed to enrich the reader’s
understanding and appreciation of the world he’s created, so that
there’s no limit to the potential of "The Looking Glass Wars"
