Would this make you want to read to book? (Assuming the subject matter was something you might read anyway.)

It's really good, I liked the way the text was in time with the music and that slowly more of his face was revealed. Are you planning on using the same photo on the cover?

I've done another trailer with a different piece of music, which I sort of like better. The music in the first trailer if from FreePlay and I'll have to buy a license to use it, and who knows how much that will cost. The music in the second trailer is free.

Here is a link to the second trailer:

I like it. The story of the "boy vampire" and the goth version of Pop Goes the Weasel really works.

The description at the bottom was most interesting for me. Now when I think boy vampire, especially one that has survived that long, I don't think innocent cute kid. The picture presented is sad and from what I can tell, the kid's pretty cute. I get all these bad vibes however when I see the words associated with the book. So it's intriguing. But definitely the description of the book more than the book trailer although I liked it.

I wish you'd change how some of the words are coming from off screen. The word Betrayal specifically because it's the word that is changing the tone of what you're listing, but because you have it coming from the end of the word it's easy to identify. Not a whole lot of -ayal words. It just ruins some of the intention of revealing the words in the first place, to me. I think Sin should reveal from the front as well simply because for a brief moment I expected a longer word than sin to be revealed. It's a common three letter combo.

I like that music for the subject of the book. Works well :)

I'll have to do a new trailer without the release date once that date passes. I will take your suggestions into consideration for the new version. Thanks.

Your trailer is intriguing and your cover is very well done! I had to go to your site and read the writing sample and I think you have such a great story there! I'll be looking for it after you release :)
