Book trailers–do they work? What do you think of the images? The music? The text? Do they generate interest in reading the book? Does a trailer like this need audible narration? I’d appreciate knowing what you think. So feel free to use the comments box to give your feedback.
Typically, a book trailer is not exactly a movie clip dramatization of a scene from an original novel. It would be incredibly difficult to obtain stock photos that precisely fit the original characters from a particular book. And production costs for a trailer featuring actors who accurately portray the actual characters of the story could become prohibitively expensive in no time.
Should authors and publishers even bother with book trailers? Or do book trailers have their place in helping readers and writers connect? We authors value input from our readers, so reach out and let me know what you think about this trailer or about book trailers in general. Thank you!
