So today I have a question rolling around in my head that’s begging to be asked—do you need a book trailer to promote your book?
For those who don’t know, a book trailer is sort of like a movie preview. But instead of live action actors, it’s a series of photos and images with some text that tell the basic premise of the story. The point is to hook the watcher into wanting to read the book. I’ve seen a bunch of authors do book trailers for their new releases but obvious not every book out in the world has one. So do you think they help promote and ultimately sell the book or are the resulting sales (if any) not worth the effort and time?
