I’ve been thinking a lot about book trailers these days. These are the nifty little short infomercials that are showing up on Youtube. One of my AW pals, Samantha Sotto, has crafted a little gem for her novel, Before Ever After.
She wrote the script herself, got her publisher’s approval and found a producer. Those are her hands turning the pages and her voice in the voice-over. I think it’s brilliant. It drew me in totally and makes me want to run out and buy her book (which I can’t do, as unfortunately , it won’t be out until August).
The trailer is professional, engaging, charming and intriguing. Just like Samantha. Watch it and enjoy.
