I’ve been spending a lot of time on Instagram. It’s been great talking books with readers. Tons of fun.
But of course, I’m also there to mention my book once in a while. Mostly this is with pictures of my book, or with snappy memes.
But I’ve also started enjoying 15 second or less mini-trailers.
Hey, you thought querying was bad!
This has been a huge challenge, and I have to admit… a little bit of fun.
Think it over… how can you entice a reader to check out your book in 15 seconds or less. It’s flash fiction, with videos!
For the next few weeks I’ll be showing these videos here on Fridays. I hope you enjoy them!
Here’s number one. This was really an experiment to see how it was received. I took for granted most people have at least heard of my book (Because they followed me)
I love the visuals and everything you’ve got so far, but I’m waiting for a third beat.
A third beat?
What I mean is, when it says 1) “what would you do” 2) “if you found a boy in the woods?” and 3) ……..
To me, it feels like there should be a third piece to this to amp up the tension.
Ohhhhh. I get it. One of the later ones does this. This one was mostly an experiment on wether I COULD do it, and how well it was received. Kind of trial and error. Great feedback. Thanks!
Indeed a great presentation and post!
I like the immediacy of intrigue.
“What was THAT about?” That’s the question. Love it more than the longer ones. Almost like those Theatre / drive-in-type commercials to GO buy popcorn…and a Coke…etc.
Believe it or not, I think these are more attention-getting (until everyone else catches on). ❤
Yeah, right now I think I’m the only one doing it. Part of me DOESN’T want to be a trend setter in this. But honestly, it take three minutes to do a picture, and over an hour to do a simple 15 second video. More if there are a lot of transitions. I’m not sure tons of people would be neurotic enough to take the time. (Yes, I just called myself neurotic) 🙂
Go forth and go good, Jennifer. Only my opinion, but this wowed me. ❤
Awwww. You rock!
Thank you Char!
I like it!!
