Book Trailers

I stumbled accross an interesting web site: http://bookscreening.com/ which collects book trailers. I was not aware of the insurgence of video productions to promote books. There's bunch of them here and many are well done.

Re: Book Trailers

I've seen a few here or there, mostly for authors like Danielle Steele or James Patterson. It seems like whenever my wife tunes into Lifetime, we're likelier to see those. When I tune into watch a Reds game? Not so much.

The ones for Doug Chiang and Orson Scott Card's Robota were exceptionally cool.

Re: Book Trailers

I am so not with it. I've seen commercials for books on the boob tube, but I had no idea there were so many book trailers out there with such good production values.

I went to Amazon and bought a used copy of Robta and now I'm thinking about going to Audible to get Abe's book.

Re: Book Trailers

I must have missed this first time around. On skimming through some old threads I saw the title for this one and was intrigued but the subject matter was not what I had thought it would be.

In the UK, a good few of the books I have been reading over the past year or three seem to include at the end either a first chapter or an extract from another title by way of an "extra".

It serves as an advertisement for another work in the same genre and maybe encourages a reader to pick it up. The problem for me is that nine out of ten times I already have the book so "trailed"...
