Game as Ned book trailer

The first book trailer I ever viewed was for Richard Flanagan’s The Unknown Terrorist. I was hugely impressed that a publisher would invest so much time, effort and funds into a promotional website for one book, let alone give it a cinema-style trailer. It worked on me. I went out and bought the book.

I’ve seen several book trailers since and, despite the nay-sayers, I reckon they’re a great way to give a quick and tempting taste of a story. So, while I wait for a verdict on my current manuscript, I decided to have a crack at a trailer for Game as Ned. Please have a squiz and let me know what you think.

Many thanks to the very talented and generous Ash Davies for the use of his track Stormclouds, from the album Ned Kelly.
