Superb New Book Trailer for "The Black Prism" by Brent Weeks



The Black Prism by Brent Weeks has been one of my top ten novels of 2010 and I reviewed it HERE as well as having a short video interview with Brent Weeks HERE, so when I saw this recent release of a new book trailer to mark the mmpb publication of the novel I was very intrigued.

There is an excerpt from The Blinding Knife, the sequel to The Black Prism and one of my top ten awaited novels of 2012 but sadly it is on Facebook, so I cannot access it as I have no account and do not plan to open one there.

Anyway, the trailer is superb and I watched it and enjoyed it several times already. While I like book trailers in general, there are occasional ones that really transcend their short format and make one wish there would be a real movie instead. Anathem's book trailer was one such and this one is another.

About time, a book trailer that actually hints at the plot! I hope that this sets the trend for trailers in the future - well made, and actually useful :)

There are some good trailers out there - Anathem, Aurorarama, Distant Hours (the animation version) - though I agree that many trailers do not have high production values.

I guess a lot depends on how much the publisher invests in it and in most of the cases I mentioned the books in cause were bestsellers (Anathem was even a #1 NYT for a week or so)
