Tips on Book Trailers

Well, if anyone wanted a plethora of links and suggestions on how to make a book trailer, head over to http://www.nathanbransford.com. Yesterday’s guest blogger did a fabulous job of giving all sorts of information. I’ve got images now for my computer graphics genius of a husband to base images of my hero on. I need more, but that’s ok. If anyone knows of a website featuring kick butt martial artists in traditional Chinese garb, that would be a bonus. LOL

In more personal data, I do apologize for being out of the internet picture recently. I’m trying to prepare my ms for entry into the Amazon Breakthrough Novel competition at the end of this month. I don’t have too many more reader-suggested corrections to wade through, but I’m also reading the whole thing aloud and that takes time….

    Ah, book trailers. My time suck of choice. usually the people are the few images I'll buy. istockphoto is where I get those images. Usually the cost a little over a dollar for an image.

    Thanks, Jeannie! I'll check them out. I'm still trying to nail down exactly how to use the medium to help me tell the story – it's not the same as telling a words-only story. Once I know what I'll need for faces, I'll be at my "casting" stage. LOL
