Book Trailer — Veronica Roth on Divergent

What do you think when someone says you should do a book trailer?  Do you immediately worry about graphics?  Sound tracks?  Stunning special effects?

They’ll do the job, there’s no doubt about it.  But you can also do a really good trailer with little more than two things:  a camera and an author.  Take a look at Veronica Roth’s trailer for Divergent (below).  It is largely an author interview.  Sure, there is some on-screen text and a bit of music, but this is mostly an interview.

I don’t know about you, but it has given me a bit more to think about as I noodle over the possibilities.
