Book Trailer for THE WAITING ROOM

Standard

Whew, I could be on Creative Commons ALL. DAY. LONG. I discovered so many amazing photographers today! Same with all the free to share video and music sites. You can get lost.

If I was a little more tech-savvy, this process would’ve been much smoother, faster, and the product muchhh more professional. HOWEVER:

I finally made a book trailer for THE WAITING ROOM. And I’m proud of it, amateur-status and all.

Check it out:

The Waiting Room – book trailer

Tips for fellow authors wanting to make a book trailer:

  1. If you don’t want to spend money (like me) then DON’T! Plenty of great, free resources–you just have to cite!
  2. DON’T FORGET TO CITE.
  3. Remember, you’re not making a MOVIE trailer. This is a book trailer…and people who watch it know that. So don’t get caught up in the visuals–your audience should know that the clip’s purpose is to further explain your novel–to hook them into reading and coming up with their own visuals.
  4. Don’t use your synopsis unless it works. My little back cover blurb is short and simple, so I think (hope) it worked. But I’ve seen other people add WAY too much text.
  5. If you’re worried about your readers getting a preconceived character image, then don’t use images that give them that!
  6. Get the opinion of others–not just other writers. Show it to a friend and ask how it made them feel. Which images captured their attention and which images didn’t?
  7. Have fun with it! Let it revamp you.

 

Remember: The Waiting Room releases July 1!

2nd Book Review: The Waiting Room

Standard

Second review of THE WAITING ROOM- 4 stars!!!

The Waiting Room Print 03

Rate: 4 out of 5 stars. I loved, enjoyed it, and would love to recommend this to everyone!

First of all, can we talk about the cover? It’s so pretty and I love it.

I always thought the term “true love never dies” is bullshit. After all, nothing last forever because in the end we all are gonna die, right? But I never really thinking what happened after we all die? Where are we going next? Either straight to hell or heaven?

The Waiting Room follows Jude, who dies in a car accident, and find himself wake up in The Waiting Room, place where all the souls waiting to go on to their next life, except Jude. He spent his entire time there watching his wife Nina through a window, until one day he learns that he’s the only one who ever wait that long. How long will he stay?…
