Okay, you have the book finished, your edits are complete, and you're pacing the floor worrying about getting the message out that your baby is on the way.
Sometimes it seems like an insurmountable task to get a title in front of the public so they are even aware of your newest release. A book video is one means of celebrating and promoting at the same time.
I've seen some fantastic trailers, scripted so tightly that in 90-120 seconds they capture the essence of a longer print work and I end up saying, "Must read". *blink*
It's hard to imagine reducing a 90,000 word book to a two minute sound bite, but for my new erotic western, Five Card Stud, debuting from Ellora's Cave on December 1st, I think this video is a great snapshot of what's to come.
I'm sharing my new trailer, created by romance author, Alanna Coca, with a sexy, original soundtrack written and performed by Canadian blues musician, Marv Lee.
What do you think? Anyone have other great book videos they've seen lately? Do trailers influence what you decide to buy?
