What is a Book Trailer?

A book trailer is a promotional video for a book designed to get people interested in reading it. They’re called “book trailers” because they often look like movie trailers. Since novels don’t always have pictures or illustrations, it’s up to the book trailer to make a visual for what you would normally imagine in your head… including the characters and the events that happen in the book.

Your book trailer can (and should) be full of colorful details to get people interested in reading the book: just be careful about giving away too many spoilers! (If you’re confused about how much detail to use in your book trailer and need more help, read my blog about how to avoid spoilers in book trailers)
