So I've decided to follow in the steps of lots of other bloggers that highlight recent trailers for books (and films).

First up is the bio and trailer for Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose #1) by Fiona Paul. Venom is out on October 30th 2012 from Penguin.

Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancé, she has everything a girl could desire. Yet ever since her parents’ death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape.

When Cass stumbles upon a murdered woman—practically in her own backyard—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of courtesans, killers, and secret societies. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a mysterious artist with a mischievous grin... and a spectacular skill for trouble. Can Cassandra find the murderer, before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancé, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?

Beauty, love, romance, and mystery weave together in a stunning novel that’s as seductive and surprising as the city of Venice itself.


Second up is the trailer for the film Detention starring The Hunger Games' Peeta or Josh Hutcherson. Below is the bio for the film, which was released in April this year in America. It went straight to DVD in August here in the UK which is why it completely missed my radar.

This comedy/horror movie is about a group of teens who go to Grizzly Lake High School. When one of their class mates is killed by someone dressed up as 'Cinderhella' (a character from a popular horror movie) they are all under suspicion. But when they all get detention, they try to work out who it is.

Great idea to feature book trailers! Would love to offer mine for consideration. They're found at http://tkrichardson.com but I will follow your guidelines for submitting. (Off to search for those now!) Thanks, T.K. Richardson

Hi there. I'm not as organised or formal to use submission guidelines! But I'd be happy to check out your books and trailers and feature in the future.
