I made a book trailer!
There’s a fabulous service for indy authors called BookBrush. It’s not inexpensive, but factoring in the cost of hiring out promotional images, etc. it’s a good value.
Providing one sits down and learns the software!
I’ve been able to do easy things, like the image above, and some that are more complicated, like covers for boxed sets.
I’d taken a stab at Book Trailers when that service first became available and was never able to master the process. But, under pressure of a promotional deadline, I finally put my bottom into the chair for two afternoons, experimenting and reviewing an old webinar (more than once!). The result is the trailer for my April 12th release, Claims of the Heart.

What do you think?
I also figured out how to set up my YouTube channel.
I’m going to have to populate it with more videos! What would you like to see?
I for one, would like to see my books starring in videos more like this fantastic one from author Lauren Smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3WGI6uMN-8
I’ll have to spend a lot more time at my computer!
