I never thought I'd make a book trailer because I've heard from more than one person in the industry that readers don't really care about them. I've recently connected with some fellow Soul Mate Publishing authors online, and I've noticed many of them use trailers. I've also seen more than one article recently about the popularity of YouTube and how people are using videos to grow their businesses. I thought, why not?
I combined some recent advice from workshops and industry articles about power words and the promise of an experience to the reader. I tried to keep that in mind when I made this. I also tried to keep it short because I know people might give up 30-60 seconds to watch, but 2-3 minutes might be asking too much.
Have you seen trailers by other authors you love? Do you think there's an audience for book trailers? Does this one give you expectations and make you feel something? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
