  1. Thanks Ashley for hosting the trailers! All of them are very good with great music. Hollowstone was very appealing.

  2. Thank you so much Micheal, I truly appreciate the kind words.

    And thank you Ashley for featuring my trailer among so many excellent selections. I’m both honored and humbled.

    The Daughter of Man, The Black Witch, Hollowstone were my favorites -simple, intriguing, haunting. A book trailer should evoke the emotion of the book so the reader can imagine the characters & scenery on their own. Book trailers are not mini movies.

    These are not necessarily books I would read, I just liked the way the trailers were formatted.

    A book trailer I like is A Familiar Rain. http://johngeddes.ca/book-trailer/

    Just wanted to add that I looked at another of your websites about making book trailers and I loved the Middle School book trailer. Yes, there are pictures, people, background etc, BUT BUT BUT…..what I loved is that the children were reading portions of the book – and that is entirely different than making them the characters. This trailer can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mL2Dyh5Gck

  9. Such a great link thanks!!!

    Mine are on the blog
    hopewelsh.blogspot.com the first post shows the two I made. I’d love some feedback on them

  12. Thanks Ashley – these are some great examples! I really how creative these authors (or whoever designed their trailers) can demonstrate their stories. Although I am still very new to the fiction game, it seems to me that the music is a very important part of drawing people in. I was fortunate enough to get permission from one of my favorite bands to use one of their songs in the trailer for my forthcoming novel, ON TENTERHOOKS – http://greeverwilliams.com/?p=1263

    I welcome any critiques or suggestions for improvement!
