Julie, glad to hear they complemented your reading.
Patrick, wow, thanks so much!
Joe, I don't think it's too hard to put something like this together. I think I'll try and find some time to learn it for a similar one for my website. That way I can have full control of what goes into it. But it's a lot of work for sure even if you're not the one making it. The music was my choice, but it took hours and hours of searching for the right royalty-free music. Then choosing the pics, reshooting some for a variety of angles and setup, sequence, e-mails back and forth etc. all taking time. Still, it's worth it, it's a powerful marketing tool imo.
A contest sounds good.
