Book Trailer Launch!
The book trailer is ready! And I just posted it to the Pirate Captain Toledano Facebook page.
“José and the Pirate Captain Toledano” will hit bookstores on 5/1/22, but it is already available for pre-orders on Amazon and other popular online retailers. You can pre-order your copy here: https://amzn.to/3G5dLWE
I’m really excited about this middle-grade graphic novel, and I’m even more excited to share it with the world. The book isn’t just a swashbuckling adventure (though there’s plenty of that!) it’s also a book about overcoming hatred, celebrating difference and fighting for what’s right. I think the world could use a good story like this. The trouble is, I can only make little waves on my own. I need lots of help to make a big splash. So if you'd like to help me spread the word, here are somethings you can do: -Share the trailer! Not just on Facebook, but on all your favorite social media platforms - and don’t forget those WhatsApp groups, and the email list you’re part of… Here’s the YouTube link: -Invite people to ‘like’ our Facebook page! You can tag @jewishpirates -Encourage your friends to pre-order, too! The book is available for pre-orders online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Target, Walmart, etc. If you know book reviewers, bloggers, or important taste-makers who might find the book compelling, make sure they know about it, too. If they’d like a review copy, I can make that happen, or they can contact the publisher directly at www.karben.com.
I’ve always cherished the support of “Team Toledano” - from the overwhelming response to the crowdfunding campaign that launched the short film, to the wonderful way they all embraced the film, to the patient anticipation they've all shown for the book. I think "Team Toledano" is going to grow quite a bit this year. I can't wait to share the book with everyone!
