I have to admit... I am easily distracted. Some days it is very difficult for me to read at work because people stop by my cube, emails come in, etc. I can get totally lost looking and giggling at lolcats. My newest distraction today... book trailers.
Perhaps I am missing something... do book trailers work? How do they get out to the readers? I found this Sholes and Moore trailer by searching Lynn Sholes. It seems to me the reader has to actively search for an author's work. What am I missing? I suppose they are on an author's website as well. Can they be uploaded to Amazon? Do indie stores post trailers on their websites?
I think book trailers are fun. :) It's interesting to me what elements an author chooses to highlight, the music selection, if the author uses images of the characters or not...
Authors - have you seen a positive impact because of book trailers?
Readers - has seeing a trailer cause you to go out and buy a book? Or made you not buy one?
