I’ll admit it.
When I think about book trailers, I’m glad I don’t have a book. The thought of having to make a book trailer intimidates me.
Book trailers are like movie trailers. They hook readers and make them want to read your book. Your book. Not the other guy’s book. Yours.
It isn’t enough that my manuscript had to compete against other manuscripts on the editor’s desk. After that, my trailer will have to compete with other trailers.
That wouldn’t be so bad if the bar had been set just a little lower, but Simone Elkeles has set the bar Olympic high jump high. Check out the trailer (below) for Rules of Attraction and read the guest post she wrote for her agent’s blog. Wow.
Smelling salts anyone?
