Heroes of the Fallen Book Trailer

I wanted to do something different with this and believe I have. To me a trailer is supposed to be a tease and simply tantalize on what is in there.

So now for those wondering, the novel is available.

Oh Thank You very much again to my sister-in-law, Erin, for the art.

Very nice trailer! The music had a very unearthly, fifth element quality to it, and the art is very moody.

Thanks for sharing, I must check my local Chapters bookstore, and see if they are carrying your book.

David J. West said...

I appreciate Paladin, though there might be a couple hiccups in the system for a few days-I won't have my own book til friday.

Nichole Giles said...

Great trailer, David. Well done. Can't wait to read your book.

M. Gray said...

It's incredible, David. I absolutely love it.

David J. West said...

Nichole-thanks I appreciate all the feedback.

Bless you Mary.

Charles Gramlich said...

I liked that. The art and music mesh very well

Lisa said...

Great video! Did you put that together?

Daron D. Fraley said...

Nicely done art. And the music was perfect for setting the mood.

Krista said...

Very dramatic and intriguing!

David J. West said...

Thanks Charles.

Lisa, yes I did it (and I have absolutely no skill or expirience in such things-could ya tell?)
Definetely thanks to my sis-in-law Erin and Kevin MacLeods music too.

I appreciate that Daron.

Thank you Krista.

People, if its way too vague and you are lost tell me that too.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

oooh! Love it. Makes me want to read it NOW. I'm putting it on my list on goodreads.
Well done. Did you do it yourself?

Brian Murphy said...

Very cool David, nice work. Your sister-in-law did a great job with the artwork.

David J. West said...

Terry-yes I did it myself, just trying to figure things out and also I needed to save the loonies and toonies.

Thank you Brian-couldn't have done a thing without her.

Lisa said...

David are you going to do the Motley Vision Monsters contest? That sounds like something you'd like.

Is your publisher going to offer your book in audio format?

A Paladin In Citadel said...

Did you just say loonies and toonies? How very ... Canadian of you ...

David J. West said...

Lisa-I am absolutely doing the M & M anthology. I got a great idea for a Porter Rockwell/Bear Lake Monster tale.

I haven't heard anything about an audio version yet-though I would love it if they did.

Paladin-Ha, yeah I said loonies and toonies for Terry's sake since I know she's Canadian.

Angie said...

Very cool. Nice job. I'd like to come to the signing in Provo Saturday, but I have to go to a family party. I guess it'll have to be at Storymakers.

David J. West said...

Thanks Angie, I will have lots of books there too.

Yamile said...

It looks awesome! Can't wait to meet you at Storymakers.

Mary Campbell said...

Wish I could make it to your book launch, but I'll see you at Storymakers - I'll be there for Saturday only. Enjoyed the book trailer - good luck tonight.

David J. West said...

Thank you Yamile-its gonna be a blast.

I look forward to it Mary, thanks.

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Love the book trailer! And the art work was awesome!!!

David J. West said...

Thanks Danyelle, see you and John at Storymakers.

Kate said...

You did a good job of creating mood and interest through music, angles, and color. Love the artwork. I would cut the time down to forty-five seconds or a minute. It got a little repetitive.

How young of a reader would you recommend your book to?

David J. West said...

Kate-thanks. I would think teen plus could enjoy it, though I would not qualify it as a YA title.

elizabeth said...

Wow, David! I am blown away! Love the talents! The story line is VERY intriguing! I so want to get my hands on that book!

David J. West said...

Thanks Elizabeth, won't be long now for you to get your hands on it.

Kessee said...

I believe I have the first signed copy. Woot. Congratulations again.

It was good to meet you.

David J. West said...

Thanks Kessee, glad we finally got to meet in person.

can't wait for you to finish your book either.

Bruce Durham said...

Very nice trailer, though I thought the end credits flew by a tad too quickly. The music selection was appropriate and complimented by some very good artwork. Guess I better start collecting those loonies and toonies...

David J. West said...

Thanks Bruce, I'm honored to have Canuck readers.
