New book trailer: 'Infinite Reality'

Yesterday I had a Stargate Universe marathon TV watching session. I had given up on this franchise when Stargate Atlantis proved so boring, but I was pleasantly surprised by SU. The plots revolve around consciousness technologies, which is straight out of the Matrix movies. Very cool.

This morning a book trailer for Infinite Reality: Avatars, Eternal Life, New Worlds, and the Dawn of the Virtual Revolution by Jim Blascovich and Jeremy Bailenson synchronistically crossed my path. 

Would this trailer persuade you to buy the book? What elements could you reproduce (on the cheap) in your own book trailer?

Authors: join the biggest publishing revolution since Gutenberg!

I wonder if the inventor of book printing, Johannes Gutenberg, is celebrating in his celestial library the dramatic democratization of publishing today. 

Believe it or not, I'm not on Mark Coker's payroll, but I am excited about what's happening at Smashwords, the ebook publisher. Be inspired!
