Last weekend at a get together for the Mid-Atlantic SCBWI, a wonderful speaker by the name of Tina Nichols Coury talked about author promotion, and one of the things she said was that every book should have a trailer.
In all honesty, I’m not 100 percent sure why books should have trailers, or what authors are supposed to do with trailers once they have them, but Tina made it sound easy to create one, so I figured, what the heck? I’d try it. I found an awesome site called Animoto that lets you create one pretty easily. I also found a great site called ShutterStock that lets you buy images fairly cheaply.
The result? Voila!
