15 second trailers. Don’t laugh. They are worse than a query.

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)

What do you think?

  1. I love the visuals and everything you’ve got so far, but I’m waiting for a third beat.

  2. 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). ❤
