A 15-Second Comedic Trailer for FIRE IN THE WOODS @month9books @Georgia_mcbride

Last week I introduced the idea of the 15 second trailer. (Here’s the link to the post if you missed it)

This week’s mini-trailer is a little comedy bit I built.  It started off as this still picture meme…

Girls Boys Aliens

but out of nowhere I started messing with elements moving around. Before I knew it I was adding music and sound effects.

This was a TON of work, because it is essentially stop-motion photography.  Hey, I’m learning. And having fun while I do it!

I really have no idea where I was going with this. FIRE IN THE WOODS is not a comedy… I guess I was just in a quirky mood.

What do you think?

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)
