The Book Trailer for The Funeral Birds

As I start thinking about how I’m going to promote my novella I decided this morning to create a book trailer.

Many years ago I bought a set of royalty free images DVD. These you could use when creating cards, posters etc. Anything that needed clip art. Lucky for me the DVD’s still work on my computer.

After going through the eleven DVDs of 370k images I selected the ones most suitable to tell my tale and loaded them into a Microsoft photo program to create a slideshow.

Unfortunately I only had one piece of music which was royalty free. Anyway, I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out.

Here it is… The Funeral Birds book trailer. Please let me know what you think of it.

Have a great weekend.

  1. Oh My Goodness, Paula! I am most impressed! What a wonderful way to promote your novella by engaging readers with multimedia. It sure beats giving them a ‘promo-blurb’ to read! Being a Video Design teacher for several years, my mind is awhirl with ways I can use this technique to promote my works. Thank You for sharing this, my dear friend! I wish you the best of success with your Novella!

      1. I actually hadn’t thought of it, but I sure am now–especially since creating video is one of my fortes! I hadn’t though of it because I hadn’t seen it done before until I saw yours! So, I owe you a big Thank You! 🙂
