The glam life of an author (true for once!!)

OK, how much do you wish you were me this morning? I woke up at 5 a.m. so I could drive to the beach at St. Augustine, Florida, to take advantage of the sunrise, because we are filming my MUSIC VIDEO OVER THE NEXT THREE DAYS!!!!!! This is unbelievably exciting and fun and I can't wait to spill all the deets about Radiator Music and their exciting new venture and my original rock song about The Warriors of Poseidon!

But for now, a little sneak peek!

Here I am enjoying my morning very much, surrounded by the cast of actors who are playing my Warriors of Poseidon(this is the guys without their long hair) and High Princess Riley. Yes,that's me in the blue shirt with the HUGE grin - it's crazy fun to see my characters step out of my head and off of the page and into life.



Here is our awesome director John St. Ours (on the left, looking like he could be an Atlantean himself! and yes, I'm geeked out about the fact that, among other things, he has done videos for the Dave Matthews Band!) and our actor Lee Dahlberg (who will be in an upcoming TV show following The Bachelor) who plays High Prince Conlan on the right, talking about setting a shot:



And one of the shots of filming the warriors walking up out of the ocean from Atlantis:



OK, back to work before I head out for the next location - the atmospheric (and reportedly haunted!) Green Cove Springs jail. They got the aerial shots yesterday (from a helicopter!) and tomorrow we're filming at the Fort Castillo de San Marcos and then at the St. Augustine lighthouse. This is so much fun!! I'll spill all the deets as I can and share more pics and behind the scenes footage from the video, too,as soon as I can!

hugs,
Alyssa, who is having a total blast and loving this author gig
