I have noticed a new trend. Book trailers seem to be the new rage. I think they are a great idea and definitely have the potential to woo people towards a book they may have never picked up. When I go to the movies or watch a rented movie at home, I love to watch the previews. There have been plenty of times I rented movies based off of the previews.
Last week, the girls over at Let The Words Flow blog held a book trailer contest. It sounded exciting and challenging. I followed their instructions and made a book trailer for the book I am currently revising. I didn’t win the contest but I now have a great marketing tool that I wouldn’t have had if I didn’t stumble upon their blog. I am no pro. Hollywood won’t be knocking on my door but I am in love with what I did anyway. Take a sneak peek, what do you think?
