I buy (and read) books for a couple of different reasons. If I am a fan of an author then I’m willing to try anything they write even if it is in a genre I’m not a fan of. I’ll also give a book a chance if it has an interesting premise. With that said I know it can be hard to encapsulate the awesomeness of a book in a couple of paragraphs on the back cover. There was an interesting article recently in The Writer that talked about how more people are creating book trailers to promote their books. Below are a couple.
My question to you all is this, have you ever purchased a book because it had a good trailer? Is it worth putting in the time, $$, etc to create a book trailer?
