A Picture is Worth...
a thousand words, they say. Usually, I’m not a fan of book trailers, but Jo Beverley has put together one that piqued my interest. It features pictures of the actual places mentioned in her upcoming novel, An Unlikely Countess. Check it out.
Of course, I’ve always been a fan of Ms. Beverley’s smart, sexy historicals, so perhaps that’s why this trailer works for me. Grounding a story in actual places makes sense. When I pick up a Jo Beverley novel, I know I’ll enjoy a well-researched, historically accurate tale. Being able to armchair travel with her is icing on the cake!
The problem with trailers is that they take away my right to imagine the hero and heroine as I wish, but this one simply takes me on a tour of the setting for the book. What do you think? Would a trailer that features actual places in the story make you want to pick up the book?
