I wanted to see if I could find any trailers for short stories—particularly fantasy short stories—and I found this:
It’s actually for a series of short stories, but it’s a quick dose of potential.
Thrilling music, a sense of the author’s identity, a visual peek, a simple statement that defines the character, a simple statement that defines the plot, and a promise of adventure to pique the reader’s interest.
It’s a teaser, not a full trailer, but it has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, it doesn’t lead anywhere. The link that’s provided (in the blurb on YouTube, not in the trailer) leads to nothing. A search did not lead me to the website either.
What is the point of generating interest if the people whose interest you attract can’t act on it?
