Creating A Trailer

LazyDay has asked the authors to find images and write a short script to use with Ehron VonAllen’s music. My head hurt after looking at hundreds of pictures on a number of sites. I finally found a handful that I think may go well with the script as a teaser to make the viewer want to buy the book.

There are scores of sites that offer pictures that are “Free” or “Royalty Free” *warning* read the fine print. There is a true difference in the terms.

I found that a book trailer doesn’t need many images. The power of the music and words can carry the message.

Look at this one: http://www.book-trailers.net/2007/09/discipline-by-paco-ahlgren.html
It makes one want to buy the book.

Editing and writing today.
