I don’t really like the recent trend of book trailers. I’m not against them, but they just don’t do anything for me. Mitch Benn has released a trailer for his upcoming debut novel Terra, but instead of a blurb and a dull animation, he’s had several comedians, actors, and writers read the first chapter.
What a great way of publicising your novel and getting people to actually listen. This is the sort of trailer I could get behind. I’ll be keeping an eye out for the novel, as well.
