It's not a movie, it's the book trailer

No big stars, no big budget, no Academy nominations, no cameos by legendary directors. It doesn't introduce a hot new star and it doesn't have a theme song by Justin Timberlake...

It won't be coming soon to a cinema near you, but the book trailer for my mystery/suspense thriller 'The Delta Chain,' can be seen on a raft of cool websites, including all the usual suspects-You Tube, TrailerSpy, DailyMotion, Metacafe, and others.

My neighbour Buggeroff thinks it's a movie version. He doesn't listen. He turned up with an entourage of rellies, pizza, popcorn, beer and soft drinks. He was disappointed when it didn't last much longer than a minute, which is about the length of time to which I wish his unannounced visits were restricted.

I had to point out there's no CGI, no product placements, no sequel and no BluRay release.

It's not a movie, it's the book trailer.


  1. SWEET trailer! Excellent job! Definitely creates a buzz for the book. Music matches perfectly; bet it took some doing to find the right snippet.

  2. Thanks Amy. Yes, took a while, glad you find the music matches the mood. GWE handled the production. I hope all is shaping up well for you with "Petroplague," which has had some excellent notices (as well as your work being described as 'Crichtonesque.' Fantastic!)
