Each week a member of The Indie Exchange will be sharing their trailer and the story behind it. This week, it’s Keira Michelle Telford with her Trailer for SILVER: Acheron (A River of Pain).
Keira Michelle Telford says: “I made my book trailer before I realized that it was something a lot of authors do. I thought I was way ahead of the crowd. I thought I was a trendsetter … I was wrong. My trailer differs from most (if not all) other book trailers in that it’s well over a minute long (in fact, it’s over 3 minutes). It looks more like a standard movie trailer than a book trailer. It’s a mini-movie almost, and I guess that’s what I was aiming for.
I used stock video footage, stock images (all sourced from iStock.com) and had instrumental music written and recorded specifically for it. Would I do it all again, even now I know what a real book trailer is supposed to look like? Yes, probably. I’ve worked on a few indie film projects in the past, and I love editing. I enjoyed making this trailer, even if it doesn’t help to sell any books!”
Dishonorably discharged from the Hunter Division and banished for crimes she did not commit, Silver struggles to come to terms with her new prison-like surroundings: a segregated area of the city called the Fringe District, populated by murderers, thieves and rapists.
Starving, and desperate for money, she reluctantly accepts the Police Division’s invitation to enroll in a covert Bounty Hunter program: an initiative devised to infiltrate the criminal underworld of the Fringers, and to force the very worst warrant dodging law-breakers to meet their fate—death.
Unfortunately, Silver doesn’t realize that the Police Division is about to up the ante. They need more than little snippets of information and arrests—they need someone to pull the trigger.
They need an executioner.
SILVER: Acheron is the first book (a 40,000 word novella) in a 10-book series featuring the character of Ella ‘Silver’ Cross. Set more than 300yrs in the future, the Silver Series takes place in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world where humans are a species on the brink of extinction. No longer at the top of the food chain, humans are preyed upon by the Chimera—genetic mutants that outnumber humankind 25:1.
And Silver is a Hunter—the best in the city. She’ll risk her life in the pursuit of a human resurgence on Earth. The question is: will you join her?
JOIN THE FIGHT.
