Adventures in Book Trailers!

Inspired by Amy, and her wonderful book trailer for Zen and Xander Undone, I decided to try my hand at this new-fangled video stuff. Unfortunately, I don't have John Green's gifts for video charisma. So instead, I decided to make the anti-book trailer trailer.

For all those who dislike book promotion or book trailers, here's my video on what doesn't work for selling books.

Secret to Lying Book Trailer:



  1. I liked the way you "promoted" your book. Cute babies = teen readers. Or maybe not.

    The reviews of your book sounds awesome though, I'm off to put it on my summer reading list.

    I'm pretty sure that's exactly how a book trailer would look for me too.

  2. I love it! Made me laugh. I especially like your spokesperson. S Or is it spokesbaby?

    But I am afraid for the squirrel.

  3. Have no fears, no squirrels were hurt in the production of this video. That was a highly trained stunt-squirrel.
