Pubicity Romp with Katie Davis

Katie Davis

  1. In all honesty (not just kissing up here) Katie’s “Little Chicken” trailer is my favorite: I’d seen many trailers before that but didn’t make it a point to search them out. Katie’s made me realize they are (or can be) gems brilliance in their own right.
    Second in line might be the trailer for “Press Here” by Tulet`.
    Hope I win KD’s great book. Thanks for the giveaway.
