I'm so excited about this trailer because...hello, it's real people that are like German versions of Jackson and Holly. First off, German Tempest isn't actually called German Tempest. It's called Sturz In Die Zeit which translated to, Fall Into Time...cool, huh?
The only downfall is that Mark Perini isn't on the cover of this one. I like this dude too, but you guys know how attached I am to Mark being the official "Model Jackson."
Anyway, the trailer...so, I recently found out that the song on the trailer was written just for Tempest after Peter (more on him in a minute) received and read the book. There is nothing more awesome than having a song inspired by the novel I wrote. Nothing. So here it is, for your viewing pleasure:

Anyway, Time Tuesday Travel is where I talk about a time travel related book, film, or TV show that I've recently watched for the first time ever or some other bit of information related to the subject matter. People always ask me what time travel stories inspired Tempest and the answer is almost always none...if you've read Tempest, you'll know why. It's pretty non-traditional time travel, but since giving my presentation on time travel at LeakyCon last month, I've become enthralled with the idea of being a writer of a time travel story and sitting down to watch someone elses' time jumping creation...something new that I haven't ever seen before. It's weird and kind of cool, actually.
Until you actually attempt to write time travel, you can't even imagine all the things that you have to think of to be able to make the story believable. It's very different to look at it from the writer's perspective. So that's what I'm going to do here. I'm going to give you my reader/viewer opinoin and then the "Inside the Writer's Brain" opinoin.
