Now Showing: “Book Trailers”

For those of us who are fortunate/unfortunate enough to be self-publishing, figuring out the marketing can be a real challenge.  I feel like I don’t have time to write anymore, what with press releases, email notices, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, group postings, blog interviews, etc.  And just when I thought I was beginning to get the upper hand on all this, along comes a new marketing device: the book trailer!  So now I find myself having to learn how to make a short “movie” that will make people want to read my book.  I’m just beginning the process and it already looks daunting.  Take something as simple as background music for a one-minute feature; its a nightmare of copyright entanglements and legal uncertianties.

I’m beginning the process of developing a “trailer” for my recently released fantasy novella “Sea-Change” and I will be providing future updates on progress as well as commentary on what works and what does not.
