Now it’s time to go back to some basics:
The trailer itself is fairly simple, including music and “plain” text displayed with stimulating visual effects. The only picture is the book cover. Quotes are selected to provide the trailer with more authority. The overall effect is appealing and affordable.

“It’s a cross between Lord of the Rings and the Wizard of OZ where you will be swept away into a magical land of Dwarves, Elves, and Halflings.” —Brae Wyckoff
I’ve never been a big fan of describing books based on other books. When you add something so unique to one classic, like Halflings, then it borders on plagiarism, which isn’t a good sign.
