On the Topic of Book Trailers

Standard

In case you’ve missed it, the book trailer for Aunty Ida’s Full-Service Mental Institution (by Invitation Only)  is below. Go ahead, watch it. There’s a good chance Aunty Ida won’t actually do anything to your brain. Maybe.

In making book trailers, some people decide to tell you what the book is about, which is definitely one way to do it. You might catch the attention of people out and about where they’re not actually in the context of books, and no doubt it can be effective.

Instead of that, though, I tried to capture the essence of the book, its flavor, the tone of it. It’s supposed to give you the sense of what you’re getting into, and with Aunty Ida, that can be a lot more than you bargained for, given her tendency to get involved when you haven’t actually bargained for anything.

In this digital age, it’s a bit of a calling card, a handshake and a hello. A book trailer can give a sense of who you are as writer, and what you have in store for your readers. Well, in this case, what Aunty Ida has in store. I claim no responsibility.

If you share the trailer, you can be entered to win a $25 gift card from Amazon. Just tweet it using my handle, @IsaLeeWolf, retweet this tweet, or share on your blog or website. Make sure to post your website shares below so that I make sure you get your entries, or enter directly using this link at Rafflecopter.

Enjoy!
