We Ought to be in Pictures

September 15, 2010

Marketing self-published novels is no picnic, but book trailers are fun. I got a kick out of having my three chicklit/social satire novels reduced to a minute of video, and getting the resulting cinematic visions on Youtube. These days, with the growing popularity of book trailers, we all have a chance to entertain at least fleeting fantasies that our stories, expanded to two hours, would pull in crowds at the box office. Or maybe one day, when books are completely out of style, we’ll all go directly to video. At least we can count on Hollywood always needing new product, even if book publishers don’t.
