Check out the book trailer for my novel Point of Direction, described by Oprah Magazine as “stunningly vivid” and by NPR as a book that “pulls you in.” Visit my website for more info: http://www.rachelweaver.net
The unseen things we feel watching us from the shadows in the corners of our eye.
Something unseen that hides and lurks within the very darkness of the shadows.
The quiet can become quite deafening in its haunting persistence.
Even in silence you can hear its faint whisper coming out of nowhere. A very distant and hushed sound that seems like it’s far away, yet very close. Very close.
Close enough to touch you…too close.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a fear of the dark.
I never dreamed my fears would be real.
Learning at an early age that there are unseen things that exist which are able to reach into our world from within the shadows. He spends his short life trying to avoid and ignore them until they finally force themselves on him, making him question his own sanity until he is finally pulled into the darkness himself and learns the truth.
Coming into possession of an artifact that he’d dreamt about years ago, things begin to really go sour as paranormal attacks begin to escalate in a variety of forms. A home life irreparably falling apart and forces him to flee from both an abusive home life and the ever increasing spectral attacks. He seeks refuge in a new start where his passion for a girl he secretly loves is crushed and mocked by the unknown. Devastated with no answers, he is drawn into the world of the occult which sinks him deeper into the shadows where he is finally confronted and discovers the secret of the dark shadows themselves.
They are called different things by different cultures.
But one thing that is the same throughout human history.
They are there.
Check out the trailer for my thriller, THE JERICHO DECEPTION, which #1 NYT Bestselling Author Douglas Preston hails as “a ripping good novel.”
Here’s the synopsis:
What if you controlled the power to see God?
Yale neuroscientist Dr. Ethan Lightman is on the verge of a ground-breaking discovery. A discovery that will solve a mystery that has haunted him since childhood. A discovery that will alter humanity’s relationship with religion forever.
Ethan’s invention, the Logos machine, has the power to produce religious ecstasy, but it may also cause madness.
When a colleague is brutally murdered, Ethan and Rachel Riley, a brilliant and beautiful graduate student, are thrust into a web of treachery that takes them deep into the Egyptian desert and to Project Jericho: a top-secret CIA program run by a mysterious doctor. As Ethan learns how his research has been perverted, he and Rachel race to unlock the Logos machine’s secrets before Project Jericho launches a modern Holy War. Along the way, he must confront a suppressed secret from his past that defines his very being.
“A ripping good novel, brimming with excitement, imagination, vivid settings,
and personable characters.”
Douglas Preston, #1 Bestselling Author of The Monster of Florence
“Captivating with plausibility and imagination. A gritty thriller.”
Steve Berry, NYT Bestselling Author of The King’s Deception
Mogadishu Diaries Bloodlines is a novel based on my experience as a US Marine peacekeeper in Mogadishu, Somalia 1992-1993. The story addresses many issues such as our efforts to capture a warlord, the impact of disarming a community, my conscience vs the Rules of Engagement, and tredpidation between officers and enlisted. I also address my efforts to pursue a beatiful Somali female interpreter during my deployment. I recently collaborated with Sony Pictures Entertainment in the production of my book trailer. I hope you like it. Kindest Regards, Eddie Clay III
For the record, the music is a recording I made of my band performing an original tune, the faces in the video are all computer-generated, and the locations are photos I’ve taken over the years and modified digitally to make them unrecognizable.
Hello, my name is Julia. REVEALED is my debut novel.
Vampires, secret societies and first love – those are things that Anne Watson missed during her first high school experience.
Panthera Academy is not only a place for eccentric characters, but also the home of two secret societies, the panthers and the rebels. There Anne has to deal with midnight meetings, shocking confessions of dark secrets and mysterious deaths as she experiences falling in love for the first time.
“Kergan Edwards-Stout infuses reality and hopefulness into a bittersweet story about compassion and personal growth. A distinctively entertaining novel written with moxie and bolstered by pitch-perfect perspectives.” Kirkus Discoveries
Gabriel Travers knows he’s dying; he just can’t prove it. Despite his doctor’s proclamations to the contrary and rumors of a promising new HIV drug cocktail, all it takes is one glance into the mirror to tell Gabe everything he needs to know. His ass, once the talk of West Hollywood, now looks suspiciously like a Shar-Pei, prompting even more talk around town.
Back in his 20’s, life had been so easy. Caught up in the 1980’s world of LOVE! MONEY! SEX!, Gabe thought he’d have it all. But every effort to better himself ended in self-sabotage, and every attempt at love left him with only a fake number, scrawled on a realtor’s notepad.
The only happiness he could remember was in high school, where he’d met Keith, his first love. Only Keith had recognized the goodness within, and knew of the brutal attack Gabe had faced, the effects of which still rule his life today.
Now almost 40, and with the clock ticking, Gabe begins to finally peel back the layers and tackle his demons — with a little help from the music of the Divine Miss M and his mom’s new wife, a country music-loving priest.
“Kergan Edwards-Stout has crafted a work of fiction reminiscent of some classic tales in Songs for the New Depression. Even better, Edwards-Stout’s debut boasts the kind of dark humor that made Augusten Burroughs a household name.” Advocate.com
“Kergan Edwards-Stout’s Songs for the New Depression is a bold reminder that life, especially in its most difficult moments, is worth living. His characters are real and poignant, his writing is magical, and his message is timeless. Life is at its most precious when we are faced with our own mortality. It is an important book.” Charles Perez, author of Confessions of a Gay Anchorman and founder of the No Shame Project
“Songs for the New Depression carries you away on waves of humor and sadness as we follow the protagonist as he deals with his search for love, acceptance and his battle with AIDS. Far from being maudlin, it is extremely sensitive and ennobling. A fine work that will leave you wanting more.” Robert Michael Morris, star of TV’s The Comeback and author of An American Scrapbook
A fantastic inspirational fiction/romance novel by Randy Mitchell. If you are a fan of historical fiction with a “Nicolas Sparks” type love story feel, this is a great read. The story line reminds me of a cross between An Officer and a Gentlemen and Top Gun. Book trailer below.
Jesse Brockett and Angela Perez pair up from Harbor Insurance to uncover the truth about the super computer chip robbery. Their work is hindered when they are being attacked in all directions from incredibly fast, deadly forces.
Here is the trailer for my new horror short story collection, “SEVER, SLICE and STAB,” which includes 20 tales altogether. This is my very first trailer. Admittedly it’s a bit simplistic, but I think it turned out well.
Here is the “Infomercial” for my book, Learn Me Good:
Jack Woodson has forty children and all of them have different mothers.
Jack was a thermal design engineer for four years until he was laid off from his job. Now, as a teacher, he faces new challenges. Conference calls have been replaced with parent conferences. Product testing has given way to standardized testing. Instead of business cards, Jack now passes out report cards. The only thing that hasn’t changed noticeably is the maturity level of the people surrounding him all day. Learn Me Good is a hilarious first-person account, inspired by real life experiences. Through a series of emails to Fred Bommerson, his buddy who still works at Heat Pumps Unlimited, Jack chronicles a year-in-the-life of a brand new teacher. With subject lines such as “Irritable Vowel Syndrome,” “In math class, no one can hear you scream,” and “I love the smell of Lysol in the morning,” Jack writes each email with a dash of sarcasm and plenty of irreverent wit.

Patrol the streets of old Edinburgh with a Peeler and find out what is lurking in the shadows on the night shift. WHISPERS. Find out what Pete Bonner done as a bad boy, teenager and adult. The horror grows with and within him. Watch the trailer to feed your fear.
Jennifer certainly caught my attention with this crisp and appropriate video. It exudes the feeling of quality that you would find in the book of same. I loved the transand the clear media used and the way it was executed. An awesome book video and well worth buying the book to complement the experience. Great job, Jennifer.
Hi Michael, sounds like a cracking book. I don’t think the video does it justice, in my opinion. The video was very well presented, but I kept waiting for images that never arrived. Just text. I’m sure if a lot of people posted comments here, they would disagree with me?
Hmmm, Michael. This was an interesting video, great visuals. But it left me wanting more. I couldn’t figure out the novel’s genre. Mystery, romance, humor, self help? Though the video itself is well presented, I think you need a tad more to entice your reader – or in this case, the book buyer. The dangling carrot is okay, but give them a nibble or two.
Thanks for allowing me to look and give my opinion (for what it’s worth).
Hi Matt, I love your book video. I especially love the part where the string of words snuff out the candle. Subtle, but superb. This video shows how good the quality is becoming for books teasers. I can see this has been taken seriously by the creator of the video, as it insists… nae, demands you to buy the book. If this tension is reflected on paper, then bucket loads of books should be sold. Well done Matt.
Dramatic video, Matt. It was almost like watching a movie trailer. The visuals for that striking. Great music. Loved the black and white imagery, then the candle being snuffed. Perfect touch. Only problem I see is that the print is too small after say, a minute and forty seconds or so, and the text exited too fast for me to stand a prayer at reading it. Is it possible to make the print either larger or slower?
I appreciate the opportunity to post the link to my book video at YouTube. Please take a look and comment.
A layman’s odyssey every ’open-minded’Atheist, Jew, Christian, Muslim, Agnostic, or Spiritual seeker should ponder!
Devastated by his young daughters’ tragic death, Jacob is determined to find God to ask Him why He allowed her tragedy to occur. No longer sure where to find Him, or if God truly exists, Jacob travels through the ‘Ancient Gates of Abraham’ to wander across the contradictory and prejudiced roads within the Kingdom of Religious Confusion. Repeatedly challenged to remain open-minded he engages religious leaders, devout followers, agnostics and atheists along passages as ‘Born again Street’, ‘Fundamentalist Drive’, ’Junction of the Majority’, ‘Path of Disbelief’, and many more, in commonsense conversations to understand why their philosophy alone will lead him to God, or prove God’s non-existence. Yet the further he travels the more confused he becomes, and it is not until his arduous journey nears its end that he recognizes a culminating revelation – insight he was not expecting to unearth.
Thank you for the opportunity to post the Book Trailer for my first book, releasing this month, From Zero to Christian in Just 35 Years.
Do you think church isn’t the place for you or that it’s too late for you to give your life to Christ? In her book From Zero to Christian in just 35 Years new author Lori A. Moore shows us how nothing in the past will keep God from loving us. Trusting God can be scary, especially when confronted with complex and formal language. Through this simple and easy going guide to finding God, inexperienced Christians will learn to emerge from doubt and fear into the peace and comfort that can only be found through Christ. Follow Lori as she goes From Zero to Christian in Just 35 Years.
Thanks, Vince! I appreciate it. I’ll go check out your comment. And, I’ll see if I can figure out a way to enable the ratings. I might have to go back to DK Renders, since they are the ones who loaded it up there for me.
Awesome first try, Sessha! Great music, pace, visuals and effects. The length was perfect. I might have added color to the text in the last two frames just to mix it up a bit and accent where the book can be purchased – and perhaps add a release date. Nice, nice job.
Hii my name is Trish Silver and my novel, “When I Remember Love,” has this book trailer video created by Mick Moore. The background music was written by my song writing team (music is a big part of the novel) Alan DiCenzo and Judy Simpson. The song is sung by Dick Wells. You can hear more of the music on my website, http://trishsilver.com. I hope you enjoy my video.
What a video in 4-Play, Jess! LOL. It’s perfect. Teases just enough. The music has a great beat . . . love Kevin Macleod’s stuff. Used his work in my book trailers, too. The art, pace, visuals. You’ve created a long video at 3+ minutes, but it didn’t seem long. Fantastic job.
Kelly Huddleston, author of ‘Alone in the Company of Others’ appears as a guest on The Super Late Show with Graig Dufferson. The novel is currently available in all popular ebook formats including Amazon Kindle and Sony Reader via Smashwords.com at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/4942
This book of two short horror stories, is the first creation from horror writer Andy Love. Minion, a gothic tale of one man’s hobby turned to nightmare. A Night With Frost is the reason we should believe in fables. If you don’t want to see the ice-cold horror of Jack Frost approaching; then don’t believe. Try and make it through a chilling and devastating night with your life.
Good work, we need more people to understand that research on current medical practices and medications must go forward. I have near death twice from bad treatment through bad medication. Life is good, and it is up to the stewards of the earth to make it work. We have the resources, we only need the right commitments and people.
