DIY Book Trailers and Other Video Feats

Old English adage says: “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

Then it follows a video must be worth a million.

Everything these days is video. Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. Video communication is a way of life now.  And its one of the best ways to promote books.

A few years back, the only way to get a book trailer was hiring a professional company and pay a few hundred bucks.  Then prices dropped and people popped up on who could do it for less than a hundred. But still costs could be a little pricey. I mean for $50 I can have a really good meal out or buy myself some nice duds.

But now comes the do-it-yourself age.  I have recently created some of my own book trailers.  Cost: my time and creativity.  Here is one for my book The Fortune Teller’s Secret.

Like? Okay, I know you can do better.
