The latest scoop from Calgary's #1 International Readers Festival

Watch Scott Chantler’s Pirates of the Silver Coast

A growing trend in the literary world are book trailers. Much like movie trailers, book trailers are short, promotional videos meant to tease readers into reading the advertised book. This mini-series of blog posts will look at several book trailers by authors who will be featured at this year’s Wordfest.

Scott Chantler is the award-winning author of many graphic novels. At Wordfest, the author will present the latest instalment in his Three Thieves series, Pirates of the Silver Coast, which will be in stores September 1. Take a look at the book trailer here!
