The Awesome Hottie Book Trailer!
Over the past few months, I've endured what can only be described as heaps of abuse-- and justifiably so--over the book cover. I had no control over that. But I did have control over the book trailer. This is how Hottie should look and sound.( Except for the song which wasn't my first choice--"Back Of The Van" by Ladyhawke was, since you asked-- but copyright material was a no-no. And I don't hate it). Thanks to the uber-talented Madison Meyer.
I don't know if any book trailer has ever persuaded anyone to buy or even open a book. Some bloggers are of the opinion they're useless and little more than embodiments of author vanity. When a book with a epic, fantastic premise has a trailer featuring Drama Club dorks clashing plastic swords in someone's back yard, I agree. But this, to me, does as good a job selling the book as I could hope for.
In conclusion, dump on the cover as much as you want, but not a word against the trailer! Thank you.
UPDATE: it's all squished! How do I fix that? Until I find out, here's the You Tube link with the full picture:
