Narrated videobook scheduled to be programmed in author’s hometown at the Santa Clarita Film International Festival
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. /Massachusetts Newswire – National News/ — “Love Without Wings: An Adoption Fairytale” (ISBN: 979-8986768045), was released one year ago and now it’s also available as a read-along videobook narrated by Rayyah McCaul with an original music score by Sleeps Under Beams. The author, Adam Swain Ferguson, founder, Purple Fox Entertainment, says that the book and its video adaptation were imagined to magically introduce the subject of adoption to his son, and to celebrate diverse families made complete through adoption.
Since the book’s release, its illustrations have been animated into a narrated videobook and it’s been featured at several film festivals including “Out on Film” a premier LGBTQ film fest in Atlanta. It’s also scheduled to be programmed in Ferguson’s hometown at the Santa Clarita Film International Festival from Dec. 7 through Dec 10, 2023.
The storyline of “Love Without Wings: An Adoption Fairytale” centers around two kings who have a dream to become parents, and a fairy who is hoping to find a perfect family for the baby boy growing inside her. As fate would have it, they’re all brought together through a shared wish on a shooting star.
Currently, the videobook is only accessible to view via QR code in the book’s printed edition; however, the video will be publicly released on YouTube on Nov. 18, 2023 in honor of the book’s anniversary and National Adoption Day. A clever vignette at the end of the video introduces a new ethereal character, and also hints at a second story in the works. This one has to do with the kings growing their family through surrogacy.
“We’re quite excited to share this new multimedia edition of ‘Love Without Wings: An Adoption Fairytale,'” Ferguson says. “We hope it will bring joy and hope to all those who read it or listen to it.”
BOOK SIGNING AND READING NOV. 18:
To celebrate the release, Ferguson and the book’s illustrator, Veronica Stanley-Hooper, plan to host a special reading, screening, Q&A, and signing at “The Open Book,” an independent book store in Canyon Country, California, on Nov. 18, 2023 from 3-5 p.m.
