I love using book trailers as a teaser to my books. My first six books I used inside artwork to build interest. For The Children at the Playground, I did something new. I put a call out on social media for people who were willing to share picture of their children at the playground.
I loved the pictures I received!!!! I only wish I could have used them all. 😀
So here are somethings to consider when creating a book trailer:
- What story or message do you want to convey?
A great trailer will tell a story and leave the viewer wanting more. In other words, they will want to purchase your book or look for it in their library.
- What medium do you want to use?
Cover art, inside art, pictures, videos, tie-ins. Different uses will get different peoples attention.
- Time frame!
Book trailers (like movie trailers) are great when kept short. You are trying to grab their attention, not put them to sleep. *hahaha*
If you use someone’s picture or music, give them credit.
Don’t forget to include YOUR links. Your website, your publishers website, and mention indie booksellers, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million.
So here it is!!!!!! The book trailer for The Children at the Playground!!!!!!

Would you be interested in reading the book now?
What else could I have done to be more interesting?
