Here's an interesting concept to get "young" readers interested in books, create a trailer. This seems to be an approach being taken to promote some new books. Read all about it here in this Newsweek article "Trailers: Seen Any Good Books Lately?"
I think it's a pretty nifty idea, a twist on selling books before a movie. This gives another opportunity to small-time content creators to showcase their work by partnering with writers and book publishers.

- The Thieves of Heaven
- Shadow Man
It's a good gig if you can get it.
