Miserere Book Trailer

As book trailers go, I don't think it will win any awards, but I did the best I could, and I'm pleased with it. I think the images and music set the right tone for the novel, and I guess that's what book trailers are all about.

My daughter, Rhi Reeder, helped me pick the music and get the beats to flow with the slides.

I certainly learned a lot. I now know how to loop .wav files, and I even inserted a two frame movie into part of it. In case you're wondering, I used PowerPoint 2010 to create the transitions and the slides. PowerPoint 2010 has a way to convert the file to a movie. I spent a great deal of time in a photoshop program that I have, picking the right RGBs of color for the text boxes. I also used the photo program to doctor the images.

Of course, having fabulous cover art didn't hurt the process any at all.

What do you think about book trailers? Have you done one for your novel? Do you intend to do one? Have you ever been enticed to buy a book based on the trailer?
