Last week I found an article about book trailers on the Writer’s Digest site.
The author of the article, Joe Clifford, leads with an interesting assertion that book trailers are the latest craze for indie authors.
Joe also gives an interesting look at what goes into the creation of a book trailer, gives tips about what to consider when making one for your own book, and also makes a great point about trailers aren’t just for movies anymore.
And wow does he deliver! It’s easily one of the most amazing book trailers I’ve seen in a long time!
FYI: The subject matter of the trailer is life on the streets as a drug addict, so prepare yourself; some scenes are very vivid, and emotional. Above all, the trailer did its job because the minute I saw the end credits I was clicking on over to Amazon for a peek at the book sample. Trust me, it didn’t disappoint.
What about you? Have you considered a book trailer for your published, or soon to be published, book? What are your thoughts about book trailers in general…waste of time or good marketing tool?
