Do Book Trailers Work?

2 replies to “Do Book Trailers Work?”

If the question is “does it work” I have a question for you in return – How do people end up seeing these videos? Does it get posted on Amazon? I guess I’m thinking that if I watched this video, I’d totally be intrigued about the book. But how would I have come across it?

Getting it on Amazon would be amazing… sort of THIS generations new “inside cover” description of the book… you know, for the “I want it spoon-fed to me know” generation… But who am I to speak, I listen to more books from Audible.com than anyone I know!
Another idea is that that modes like facebook could help by having the gazillions of friends and friends-of-friends tagging each other by saying something like “… if I had to cross the universe with anyone looking for my dead father’s abandon/marooned spaceship, I hope it’s you…” or something to that effect.
I LOVE the trailer though :)
