A week ago, I unveiled the book trailer for OyMG. I’ve been asked if authors are asked or expected to make their own trailers. The answer, in my case, is no. This falls under the general category of “ThisIsMyFirstBookAndIWantToTryEverythingPossible.” Will it be worth it? Like most other things debut authors do, I’m not really sure.
POSITIVES: *I show it at schools when I visit and kids love that *There are tons of places to post videos now, including youtube, schooltube, teachertube, Amazon, etc. That means extra exposure. *I attached a copy to my book launch evite and got great feedback from that.
