Coming soon, to a cinema near you

Ok, Ok – perhaps not a cinema near you, but I’ve just launched the trailer to The Devil’s in the Detail. Check it by clicking here.

A trailer for a book, I hear you ask? That’s right. I’ll confess to loving film trailers/previews. Whenever I go to the cinema, I always ensure that I am there early to see the trailers. I think a good trailer can give you a real insight into what the story is all about, as well as offering a glimpse at the style and tone of the picture.

So I wondered if I could do something similiar for my novel.

Without a film budget at my disposal, I started tinkering with the idea of some black and white photographs being displayed, with the premise of the novel mapped out to the viewer. It was coming along quite well, but there was something missing.


I had a clear idea of the music that I wanted to accompany the trailer, and consulted my friend Michael who runs a little audio company called Pinstripe Audio. Pinstripe specialise in creating music which is specifically tailored to your needs and requirements. They then offer their own thoughts and ideas. What resulted is a rendition of George Bizet’s ‘L’amour est un oiseau rebelle’ with a twist. I absolutely love the work Michael was able to do, and would highly recommend Pinstripe Audio for all of your audio needs!

I hope that, like a good film preview, the trailer wets your appetite for the novel. It’ll be available very, very soon.
