I was thinking of doing a post collecting the best information on making and posting Book Trailers… but WHY when someone has already done it!
Children’s author Darcy Pattison posted “The Best Info About Book Trailers” a few years ago, but I think most of the information still holds true and the links are good. Her links cover the how to and the why of book trailer creation, as well as links sites that feature trailers. Thanks, Darcy!
While cruising through all the links I came across this lovely book trailer for Neil Gaiman’s Blueberry Girl. It made me want to run out and buy the book. So, I guess the trailer did its job.
While browsing through book trailers on YouTube, I noticed that fans are getting into the act and creating their own book trailers. Can you imagine? That would be cool to have fans so enthusiastic about your work that they take the time to create a book trailer. What a fun student / class project as well.
Here’s a fan’s clever book trailer for The Mysterious Benedict Society:
I still want to find the ideal site to VIEW book trailers. There’s just too much to wade through on YouTube.
