March Video Trailer View-fest

YouTube_FINALRecently, our RJ Crayton schooled us on how to make a video trailer for free using YouTube’s video editor. Check that out, then come back here and post a link to ONE of your video trailers below so we can show it some love!

This is how it works: If you are an author, in the comments below, paste in the link for your YouTube book trailer video. (ONE trailer per person, please!) Make sure you show some love to the links in the comments above yours, and check back throughout the day to catch up.

This should be fun and should generate a lot of likes, follows, etc. for everyone who plays. I’ll kick things off with ours: (Okay, so that’s not a book trailer, but it’s pretty cool anyway!) Now let’s get the party started!

Don’t sweat it if your trailer embeds. We’ll fix it.

PLEASE be sure to reciprocate by liking those who like you. This is give and take. If everyone plays by the golden rule, we all benefit.

    1. Very nice trailer. Love the music, images are terrific. Have you thought about putting a link to your book page, or sales page on Amazon in your YouTube description?

    1. Great trailer. You should include a buy link to your book in the trailer description. That way, interested readers can quickly find your book on Amazon.

    1. Nice video. You should put a link to the book’s buy page in your description. That way, an interested reader can click through to the buy page.

      1. Tom, thank you for the complement, that is my normal voice, I really enjoyed recording it. Sometimes it is difficult for people to take me to seriously but they love it when I tell them a story. LOL


      1. Thanks, Tom.

        I decided to make it shorter than a real movie end credit reel would be, of course.

        And I actually ran a “mini-promo” asking friends if they’d like to “star” in the credits. Got a great response, and I assigned “roles” as volunteers signed up. It was a great way to get some added attention to The Year of the Red Door. Many of the names in the cast and crew are actual people (some are actually real actors). Others are names of my ancestors, etc., or just made up.

        The formatting was pretty easy (I used VSDC Free Video Editor), and I was lucky enough to license the great music from All-Star with lyrics that go well with the ending mood of The Bellringer. I wanted music that was similar to the “pop” music one might hear at the end of a movie, before the thematic overtures.

        The hardest part was deciding who to assign to each role!! But I managed to avoid “casting” real people as any of the really awful characters. Whew!

    1. Not sure why my trailer is showing up here and not just the link like everyone else’s. I hope I didn’t do something wrong. I only copied and pasted the address. *confused*
