This is the first time I have seen a book trailer and I love the idea. The trick is not to give away too much but at the same time make the characters exciting and the storyline gripping – you’ve managed both. Great work!
Oh, I love book trailers! If they’re good, the first thing I do is Google the author and read an excerpt. This is an excellent way to grab readers. I’m a visual writer and find ideas in pictures, songs etc. For me, working on a book trailer can inspire a chapter or element I hadn’t considered before.
I made a book trailer for my first novel because it was supposed to be the thing to do, but I don’t know whether it has done much good. I imagine it’s as effective as any other kind of marketing; it can be a good hook, but I wouldn’t count on it to bring readers to you in waves.
