Premiere of Book Trailer Film Festival

Welcome to the First Annual Book Trailer Film Festival!
Squidoo.com has an excellent definition of a book trailer:
“. . . they are designed to build interest in an upcoming or current novel and to encourage people to buy the book that they are based on. . . .The trick is to convey a sense of what the book is about without giving anything away – and without really clearly defining what the characters look like, as most readers prefer to visualize what they are reading about as they imagine it themselves.”
The website also discusses how to make a book trailer and provides links to instructional sites. Once I learned the software (Windows Movie Maker) I really enjoyed putting together my trailer for Broken Dolls.
So, get started, and I’ll look forward to seeing your trailer at the next “Book Trailer Film Festival!”
A special “thank you” to all of the authors whose book trailers appear below.  I hope you’ll visit the authors’ websites and blogs to learn more about them and their books.
Grab some popcorn and a drink and enjoy the show!

    Wow, Jan, that's an impressive collection of trailers! I think you're on to a good idea.

  2. Seeing this posted on Facebook when I first tuned in this morning has made my day. Thank you, Jan, for asking to include my book trailer with the fine ones on this page. I appreciate the fact that you're helping other authors.

    What a neat idea. Saturday morning matinee! So good of you, Jan, wishing you continuing success with Broken Dolls–a very moving trailer!

  4. Jan, what a fantastic "first" collection of book trailers. Something I haven't had time to do yet. Maybe next time. Keep at it, this will grow and get really popular.

  5. Thanks for posting my book trailer for The Hawksbill Crag novel.

    Awesome job, Jan. I'm loving the trailers. I have to say that some of the trailers definitely made me want to buy the books!
