How did you decide to create a trailer and what was your experience?
A book trailer is a video advertisement to promote books and encourage readers. The original version of the trailers for my books was a collaboration between a close friend and myself. This route was very costly. Buying the pictures and sound tracks, designing an excellent storyboard ended up being no easy feat. I either had too much information about the book or not enough. I decided to hire a professional.
My experience with Kim McDougall - the Founder at Blazing Trailers producing the trailer for my book Severed Ties has been a delight. Her prompt emails allowed me to be part of the process. She was very insightful in terms of what works and what doesn't to attract readers to my writing.
In 2007, Kim McDougall had her first book published and began the arduous journey of marketing her novel. This was the beginning of era of ebooks. Amazon was getting ready to launch the first Kindle. The world was becoming a multi-media social network jungle. Kim immersed herself in the publishing industry and discovered the newest marketing tool: book trailers. She created her first trailer for her young adult novel, The Stone Beach. Having been a photographer all her life, she had a flair for the creation of these visually stimulating videos that promoted books. Soon, other authors started asking her to produce trailers for their books and McDougall Previews was born. In 2009, she picked up her first large contract, to create trailers for a major review site. Since then, she has created over 400 unique videos to promote books of all genres. Today, McDougall Previews and its sister site, Blazing Trailers, are well-known and respected in the growing community of independent authors, publishers and publicists.
Under the business, Castelane, Inc., Kim has joined forces with her husband, Louis Chatel, former Sales and Marketing Director of Olympus Imaging America, to create an all-in-one shopping experience for both the authors looking to market a book and for readers looking for their next great read. Louis’ 20+ years in business will allow the company to expand, giving Kim the opportunity to increase the line of creative services offered to authors
To give your book the best possible launch I highly recommend Kim McDougall http://www.castelane.com
