Paul F. Olson has released a video trailer for his novel, Alexander’s Song, which was published for the Kindle last month.
The novel, which crosses genre lines and incorporates elements of mystery, suspense, horror and mainstream fiction, tells the story of one man’s quest to understand the mysterious past of a famous writer. At first stymied in his search, he gradually discovers a series of strange and frustrating clues, each one leading him deeper toward the heart of a shocking secret and a terrible realization: he has uncovered a chain of darkness that began over sixty years ago and is not finished yet.
“It’s quite a task to sum up a long, complex novel in a trailer than runs just over a minute,” Olson says. “But I think the trailer for Alexander’s Song does a really good job capturing the flavor and tone of the book. It was a challenge to make, but a lot of fun, too.”
Here’s the trailer:
