Book Video Previews Do’s and Don’ts:

You've been hearing about book trailers and how they help sell your books. Now you can get the scoop on how it happens, what it costs, and how your company can profit from them from the founder/owner of Blazing Trailers.

In this workshop we will look at good and bad book trailers to decide what makes an effective promotional tool. Topics to be covered include production of trailers (storyboard, image/music selection, voice-overs and special effects), the importance of royalty free resources and promoting with book trailers.

Our Speaker: Kim McDougal, book video director/producer

Kim McDougall is an fantasy author, fiber artist and photographer. She writes children's and YA fiction under her married name, Kim Chatel. She is also the founder of Blazing Trailers, a site designed to showcase video book previews. After creating 200+ trailers she has picked up some tricks for promoting with this hot multimedia tool.
