So, I wanted to find an example of a good trailer that didn’t strike me as a high-budget endeavor. I was lucky enough to find one on my second try!
It’s not fancy, folks, but it doesn’t need to be.
“Evan Gabriel, a disgraced NAFN soldier, looks for redemption on a distant planet. But will his redemption cost more than his own life? Interstellar action mixes with political intrigue…”
Steve Umstead’s Gabriel’s Redemption: Book 1 of the Evan Gabriel Trilogy.
Captivating graphics. Effective music. A character we can care about. A plot that can interest us. A title. The author’s name. A place to buy it. What more do you need?
I was so impressed after so many duds that I actually checked the author’s site. It’s a blog, so check it out. You can buy each of the three books separately or buy the trilogy, which now includes the recently released prequel! (Because you can do that with e-books.)
Now, the only question is: Is there any way to get one of those Kindles back from my boys long enough to read a trilogy? Sadly, the answer is probably not. 😦
