‘Alive at 5′ Book Trailer

Journalist Linda Bond has written her first book, a romantic thriller called Alive at 5, which is out today from Entangled Publishing. The book is inspired by her experience as a journalist and even draws on real newsroom personalities. Check it out:

TV news reporter Samantha Steele is one panic attack away from losing her job. Future on the line, she sets up an easy feature story — following her mentor on an exhilarating adventure vacation. When her mentor dies while skydiving, Samantha suspects he was murdered, and her investigative instincts lead her to gorgeous thrill-seeker Zack Hunter.

To help promote the book, Bond wrote, produced and directed an ambitious six-minute book trailer. The high-action video features scuba diving, sky diving and motorcycle rides. We’ve embedded the video above for you to check out.
