Some New Book Trailers and Updates

I finally took some time out of my day to go ahead and start making some book trailers. Let me start by saying this; it was a very time consuming task. It took me literally 2 hours just to make one. The first process was actually looking for some good video loops. I found a place called (They are also the owners of Themeforest). I was able to find some quality loops from $3-6 dollars each. I loaded my account with $30.00 and I have to say it was the best investment I have made so far.

I purchased some really good 10-16 second loops, and took them over to Windows Live Movie Maker. I invested in Adobe Effects, but it's a very complicated program and I am still watching Video Tutorials on how to use the software. I would have to say that I am still a beginner. It's so much easier to work with the loops with Windows Movie Maker.

I found myself checking my Barnes and Noble Pubit account and it put a big smile on my face that my books are actually starting to sell. I've pulled my prices down to $0.99. It seems to be selling more at Barnes and Noble than Amazon.

Goodreads finally added me as a librarian so I can upload my videos to my Goodreads Profile. I also applied for an author page, but they haven't gotten back to me. I've been so busy, I didn't realize how time consuming all this self promotion was going to be. I practically takes up all my free time. Honestly, I haven't really found any time to write.

I have two other blogs to work on. Here are all five (was supposed to be six but I got tired) of my trailers; I hope that you enjoy them.

I love your trailers! I made the book trailer for Wasteland with Windows MovieMaker using images and such and it looks ok, but I really like the graphics/animation with yours. Definitely makes me want to find out more!
