Book Trailers: Two More Worth Watching

I posted about book trailers yesterday with a somewhat disparaging comment about how often they fail to sell me on the titles in question, but it would be fairer to say that as with any promotional device, there are hits and misses. Here are two more trailers that totally won me over. It's interesting that one looks very elaborately produced (lots of photoshop, animation, original art--all brilliantly executed), and one could hardly be simpler. But both, I think, are highly effective.

I think you're right. I like watching book trailers. I've seen the GOING WEST trailer on a few blogs now. It's amazing, but watching it hasn't made me look for the book.

Intriguing covers and blurbs by authors I like are more likely to make me pick up a book.
