Announcing: book trailer for Cleft Heart, first-ever memoir about the cleft experience

Am excited about new Cleft Heart book trailer.

Please share this trailer with your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media friends. And let me know what you think of it.

Experts say one needs a description of one’s book beneath the trailer as well as contact and sales info.

This is what’s on the You Tube site, just below the trailer:

In effect, this book trailer is an anti bullying video. It’s about Cleft Heart, the first-ever memoir about life with a cleft lip and cleft palate.

An Amazon best seller from Wayman Publishing:

Karl Schonborn’s silver tongue is locked away for years by a birth defect that makes his face asymmetrical and his speech unclear. In the conformist 1950s, bullies attack him for being different, an outsider, and for being sidelined from sports due to a possible heart defect. They call him harelip and sissy.

Doctors, speech therapists, and his own determination give him a shot at his dream of becoming a debate star and attending an elite college. During the turbulent 1960s, Karl’s own experiences with violence lead him to study how nonviolence can solve problems in all kinds of situations. He realizes that nonviolence can often be an anti bully, no bullying antidote.

Schonborn’s coming-of-age story recounts his friendship with a famous folksinger, his war resistance, two intertwined love stories, and an around-the-world odyssey. An unexpected, tragic loss, however, helps Schonborn realize that everyone—not just someone with a cleft– feels like an outsider at some point.

Reviewers say Cleft Heart will bring tears and cheers. It’s getting five star reviews.

Order from Barnes and Noble or Amazon ( ).
