The twenty-tens was a decade of book trailers like never before. In fact, book trailers barely even existed in the early 2000s. A lot has changed in the book trailer world since then, especially over the past ten years. The format has evolved significantly as the cultural importance of social media has been amplified to the level of becoming a “necessity” for participating in modern society. That’s a scary thought, but it’s a good thing for book trailers. Authors need them now more than ever.
We recently paired up with Penguin Teen to produce a book trailer for David Arnold’s amazing The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik. A coming-of-age novel that details the exploits and adventures of high-schooler Noah Oakman, post-hypnosis. Ah, yes, high school. We remember when we were hypnotized too.
