Video Trailer: Casting Stones by Gina M. Barleau

1926 – A simple error in judgment leaves James Raven a broken man – his wife dead, and his infant son, motherless. He goes back home seeking solace, only to find more sorrow – and Esther Barton, his father’s hired girl – a woman he holds in contempt.

Missteps seal James’s fate. The penance? His child, now in the care of the one he had scorned, suffers abuse and neglect. The woman James judged unacceptable, now judges him. Trapped and helpless, he can only watch in horror.

Who will save the Ravens when they cannot save themselves…and at what cost?

Their salvation ends with blood on their hands, and they must bury their sins, deep in the Loess Hills of Missouri.


 Casting Stones, by Gina M. Barleau is available from Amazon.

One thought on “Video Trailer: Casting Stones by Gina M. Barleau”

  1. Pretty nice. That "chiascuro Arbus" look works well, and the music fits it.

    If I were you I'd cut it to a minute. It's hard to sustain interest, especially in something somber and slow-moving like that. There is a tendency in videos, as in synopses, to try to tell the whole story. Actually, that's the last thing you want. You want to hook interest and leave it hanging.

    Also, it's nice to have credits at the end like that… but the most important element is given short shrift. Or no shrift at all.

    Where to they get the book. The title and source of the book is barely shown, after so much time spent on extraneous scenes like a shovel in the grass and bible page and such.

    This is a nice look, but would be way better at a minute in length…and one of those credits should be about selling your book. I don't even remember the title. The cover was on screen for only seconds.
