Self-Publishing is a series of posts that follows my desperate attempts at developing, writing, and eventually self-publishing my own book. Follow along if you dare, or if you are just really bored.
One of the ways I decided I could stand out from the crowd was to develop a book trailer to give readers a taste of the basic premise of the book. Now luckily I have already dabbled in the world of book trailers.
When my son was born I purchased a camcorder along with Corel Videostudio so that I could record his “firsts” and burn them onto cd’s to send to friends and family. At that time Amazon Studios would occasionally have contests where people could develop a book trailer and submit it with the winners receiving various prizes. I entered two of these contests Murder by Moonlight and The Seed (video is no longer available). In both I was a runner-up and won a signed copy of the book.
So needless to say when it came time to come up with marketing ideas a book trailer was one of the first things I decided to do. So without further ado, I present the trailer for After The Event!
