Trailer Time: Dreaming Death

I couldn’t sleep Sunday night, so after sleeping away the day on Monday, I found this:

This trailer wasn’t quite what I expected. I don’t know why Laura Madeline Wiseman’s book is called Wake, when it is tales of a female Death. Nor do I know why she chose the particular opening for the trailer that she did. But I find that the oddity appeals to me.

I’m assuming, instead of telling us what the book is about, this trailer gives us a short sample of what we will find inside. The visual and auditory telling of the snippet of story makes for a strong combination. It’s evocative and clever. It’s intriguing and provocative.

At the end, the text scrolls by too quickly. I have to pause it to read the review material—or to even get far enough to see that it is review material. Aside from that, the reviews are a nice compliment to the taste of story the trailer provides.

This trailer piques interest. I suppose, if I were more fascinated by monsters or death, I would by buying it now. Instead, I’ll recommend it as a model of what can be done.
