Second place in the FIBP Tour de Trailer

Writers now make book trailers - little movies to market their works. It's part of the new normal in the publishing business.  In order to give some deserving folks a bit of publicity, my publishers, FIBP, ran a trailer contest

Last week I posted the First place winner, Say Goodbye by Robert Capko, here:

Now, here is the second place winner, Sons of the Great Satan by Anthony H. Roberts :

Here is a description of the book, and it sounds fascinating:
When American teenager Joey Andrews and his family arrive in Tehran, Iran in 1976 they find an expatriate paradise within one of the world's oldest civilizations. Through the bold and imperious leadership of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, this ancient land is thrust into the modern age bringing great progress to some and seething resentment to others. It is the twilight of an empire, the last golden hours before the fall of darkness.

SONS OF THE GREAT SATAN leads the reader through a cataclysmic event as seen through the lives of the Andrews family of Peligrosa, Texas and the Zadehs of Tehran, Iran. Joey Andrews and Farhad Zadeh form a friendship amid a naive wonderland of teenage sex, drugs and rock'n'roll that explodes into a firestorm that rocks a nation. 

Enjoy the second place winner!
