Let's go to the movies with Melissa Keir and Protecting Her Pigg

Welcome to Liza's theatre!
Today, we have a fabulous video show.

Melissa Keir shares her Protecting Her Pigg book trailer:  Arson  and fire bring them together, but what will cause the most damage…the arsonist bent on revenge or their own stubborn ways?

That was a fabulous book trailer! How'd it come to be?

More and more authors are using the idea of movie trailers for their books. These book trailers are becoming more widespread as authors are trying to find new ways to promote their books and bring in more sales. But do they work?

Most authors that I’ve spoken with, as well as research, has shown that book trailers DO NOT increase book sales although a book trailer does add some additional pizzazz to your website and make a wonderful addition to your book’s promotions. They are not what drives people to buy your book.

My Own Experiences:
I myself use book trailers on my website as a value added feature to my book. When I design a page on the website about my book, I include the blurb, cover and excerpt in addition to a book trailer. I feel that it gives another glimpse at my story through my eyes. 

With book trailers, you decide on the way your characters appear and the main points you want to highlight about the book. The trailers haven’t increased my sales but provide readers with a bonus feature like a music playlist. 

I’m not skillful with the movie programs yet so I’ve contracted with two people to create the book trailers for me. Tamaria Soana from Shades of Rose makes all my book trailers. She is fabulous and enjoys making them (what a great big plus). In addition, she works hard to get my own ideas of the characters and the images, making it as much my vision as hers. 

Well, I have to admit, it really brought the characters to life. It made me want to your buy your book again.
