I love movie trailers. As a busy Mom, I don’t get to the movies very often so I look forward to watching movie trailers to help me decide which upcoming movies look interesting or not so interesting. While I don’t base my whole decision on the trailer (I use newspaper or internet reviews for that), it does make me aware of movies I might not have otherwise considered.
At a previous SCBWI San Diego chapter meeting one of the topics discussed was book trailers. The goal for book trailers is the same as a movie trailer: to make people aware of the books out there and urge them to buy it.
Here is a fabulous example of a great book trailer for the book:
Here is another example of a humorous book trailer for the picture book:
I know there are thousands of great book trailers out there feel free to share your favorite.
Hmm…maybe I should consider doing a book trailer for my upcoming picture book. I’ll let you know what I decide.
