Book Trailers

I’m working with a terrific video production person to create a book trailer for The Violets of March, and I can’t wait to share it with you–soon! What’s a book trailer, you ask? Think of a movie trailer, but for a book! These little video clips are gaining momentum in the literary world for their ability to successfully (or not–depending how they’re done) give a feel for what a story may be like. I was fortunate to get permission from the lovely, and renowned jazz pianist Jessica Williams (who has played with all the greats–Stan Getz, members of the Miles Davis Quartet, you name it) to use one of her gorgeous piano ballads as the backdrop for the trailer. I’m pinching myself! While the trailer for Violets is being produced, I wanted to share a few book trailers from writer friends that I think are fun:

The Weird Sisters, by Eleanor Brown:

Stay, by Allie Larkin:

If I Stay, by Gayle Forman (which I should add, has had almost 25,000 views on YouTube–wowza!):

And, The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees:

Is there a book trailer that you particularly like? Share! I’d love to see it!
