My 1st Attempt at a Book Trailer

Well, that's it. At 44 seconds it's probably a little too long. Would 30 seconds be more appropriate?

I have to admit that I never really liked the book trailer video idea. Using video to advertise a movie or video game seems entirely appropriate, but advertising something that is text just seems wrong. However, after almost three years of people advising me to give it a go, I have and I'm not too sure how to rate the results. If it was a movie I'd use clips to give some idea of the cast, effects and style etc., but that's not really an option with a novel.
