The Road Dogs Video Trailer contest!

HarperCollins with Entertainment Weekly is sponsoring a Road Dogs Video Trailer contest.
The first 8 chapters of Road Dogs will be on line at this link.  It’s not live yet but will be later today.

The details:

The best video book trailers are like movie trailers: designed to build interest in a creative work. The main difference is that a movie trailer already has visual images to work with but in a book trailer, the trailer’s producer needs to convert the written word into visual images. The trick is to convey a sense of what the book is about without giving anything away and compelling the audience to want more.

We’re looking for a 30-120 second video that captures the spirit of Elmore Leonard’s book and offers a compelling interpretation of Road Dogs. It should have intrigue, edge, and energy.

You should submit your video book trailer by May 1st. The winning video will be selected by Elmore Leonard and announced on or about May 12th. The winn ing video will be featured on HarperCollins.com, ElmoreLeonard.com, and EW.com. The top five videos, selected by HarperCollins and ElmoreLeonard.com, will be featured on EW.com sometime between May 1-12.


One Grand Prize Winner will receive:
- One (1) Amazon Kindle pre-loaded with the entire Elmore Leonard Library   ($676.97)
- One (1) Signed copy of Road Dogs

Four runner-up winners will receive:
- One (1) Signed copy of Road Dogs

Get contest details here.
