Didn’t I tell you that Crispian Thurlburn made a book trailer for me?

Here it is!!! Doesn’t it look fantastic?

I’m very happy with it. Crispian caught the spirit and the setting of the story perfectly. I like the mood, that’s really what the story is about.

So what you think?

Trailers are a bit of a puzzle for authors. They are cool, but they don’t seem to really push a book. What do you think? Would this trailer help you decide whether to buy my book? I’m curious!

HISTORYTELLERS Scavenger Hunt (17 March 2019) 12 authors of historical fiction set in the 1910s, 1920s and 1930s are joining together to offer a bundle of 14 books to one lucky reader (plus a book trailer reveal)

Remember that you’ll have a chance at winning a copy of my book (together with 13 others!) next Sunday 17 March, if you join the HISTORYTELLERS Scavenger Hunt. You can start the circuit from any blog… including mine.
Also, my book’s price will remain 0.99 all through the week until Tuesday 19. Just saying.

GHOSTS THROUGH THE CRACKS (Sarah Zama) When she arrived to America, Susie thought she found everything she never dared to dream of in China. But only when she meets Blood, she realises the freedom to dress as she wants, make up her face, drink and smoke and dance is just a little, unimportant part of the true freedom she yearns for

    I love the trailer- the faux-silent movie style film, the smoke, Suzie. all those great film clips. I have no idea whether they work. Discoverability then conversion…. the great mysteries of our time. lol. Good luck!

      I loved the idea of the silent film imediately. We actually tried a version with a voice over, but it didn’t work as fine.
      Well, let’s see what this trailer with bring 😉

    The trailer is good but now I want to see the movie. For me, it’s reviews that get me to read a book not a trailer. But I’m old-fashioned.
