Book Trailers – WHY?

YouTube “Book Trailers” and you will find something startling. Movie-like quality trailers for books! What? You don’t find that strange?

Well, I do. I didn’t even know such things existed until I started reading about marketing my novel.

And that made me think. If I didn’t know they existed, how useful could they really be in helping to market a book? Especially unknown peasants like me who can’t pay actors or have super-snazzy editing.

The answer is, I don’t know how useful they are, or what people on no budget should do.

But what I do know is this: Making a book trailer is fun and let’s you do something that you can spread out on social media that isn’t an annoying spam message whacking people over the head to “BUY MY BOOK!”

So that’s what I did. I couldn’t afford Morgan Freeman to voice over the video, so I decided text would suffice (you can pretend Morgan Freeman is saying it if you want)!

Without further ado, go get yourself some popcorn and enjoy the show (all 52 seconds of it!)
