I Did It!

I really did! I finished the book trailer for Enza! I know it’s kind of lame compared to those that are professionally done, but I’d have had to hire a whole lot of actors to do one like that. Even so, I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

If you were following my blog early last year, you probably heard me say that if books were children, Enza would be my favorite, much-loved, and very spoiled baby. It’s been said that every author has that one story in them. That special, once-in-a-lifetime story that will change their life forever.

Enza is that once-in-a-lifetime story for me. No matter how much I might want to, and no matter how hard I might try, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to write another novel like this one.

Every time I hear of another deadly virus, one with the potential to reach worldwide pandemic proportions, I remember all I learned while researching the Spanish Influenza pandemic of 1918. That conservative estimates say it killed forty million, while others say it might have been as many as one-hundred million. It just boggles my mind to think what could happen today.

A 2006 article in Medical News Today says:

The world population in 1918 was about 1.8 billion (US Census Bureau). Today it is about 6.5 billion. In 1918 3.6% of the world’s population died from Spanish flu. 3.6% of today’s global population is 234 million.

Scary thought, isn’t it?

  1. Congrats, Kristy! I love the music—really fitting and suspenseful. I’ll have to share this with my grandmother, who is a proud owner of your “baby.” 🙂

    1. Thanks, August. 🙂 I will probably wind up playing with the timing on the music a little more, but I loved it the first time I heard it. And tell your grandmother I said hi. Gotta love someone who loves my baby. 😉
