Book Trailer: “Zombies from Space…and Vampires”

This is a really cool video. It is much more than just a book trailer.

The Chamber Magazine

Long story short, I came across this book trailer on YouTube and thought I would have to share it. It is a fun and intense trailer. I don’t know anything about the book, as you see here, or about the author (Angela B. Chrysler), but it looks like it might be a fun read. In any case, turn up the volume, buckle up, take a shot, and get ready. Let me know if you would like to see more films and trailers like this.
