Book Trailer UP!

So excited! My first book trailer, for Shiobe Rising: The Wellspring Dragons Book 1 and Trouble in Tindrel: The Wellspring Dragons Book 2, is now up on YouTube!

I learned After Effects in the process of making the video. There’s so much to learn and do as an indie author, that one might not think about. I found the creation of the mobipocket/EPUB excruciating, but while making the trailer was frustrating at times, I felt pride instead of sick relief when it was done.

The gist of the stories are taken only from images. I did that on purpose. I read about creating book trailers, and a few authors said that, especially when using it as an ad, people watch without sound. If you have a narrator as the primary source of info in your trailer, it might be less interesting for viewers who have mute enabled.

I created, illustrated, played the tin whistle, and edited the music for the trailer. Modulo Torsion, my husband’s side project, composed the fast drum part.

If you enjoy my writing and art, follow me on Facebook and Instagram. Or buy me a Ko-fi!
