Il Profumo del peccato (Sinful Perfume) is the name of my Spice novel, Cleopatra’s Perfume in Italian. I was very excited to see they used the same cover as my American publisher (Harlequin). Since I had already put together a book trailer in English, I decided to use the same video, podsafe music, still photo, etc.
I love the blurb my Italian publisher wrote, but it was way too long for a one-minute book trailer [see July 13 & 14 for English translation]. So I used what I thought made sense and recorded the voiceover. I used to live in Italy and recently took a trip to Venice to speak and perform at La Biennale, so my Italian isn’t too bad.
I love doing voiceovers (I used to do radio commercials in English and Spanish) and this one was a lot of fun. So here it is, not one but two book trailers in Italian for Il Profumo del peccato.
One in color:
and one in black and white:
“She embraced the way of the warrior. Two swords. Two loves.”
