Barry Hutchison - author of the award-winning Invisible Fiends series for 9+ readers of a robust constitution - has always loved film, so he was in his element when it came to making a trailer for his hilarious new Afterworlds novel for 11+ readers (requiring a less robust constitution on the whole...) - The Book of Doom.
It's the follow-up to the award-winning The Thirteenth Horseman - another spirited, inventive and very funny read.
In his latest blog, Barry generously explains how he went about collecting the various elements for the trailer. The whole process cost him less than a tenner and the time it took to sit at his desk and pull images, music and footage off the internet.
The magic ingredients are, of course, Barry's imagination and considerable skills - not at everybody's fingertips.
