A Couple of Book Trailers and I Found a Great Picture for a Future Cover!

First of all, book trailers do not sell books.  At least not on a significant scale.  So why make them?  Because they’re fun.  There’s no other reason I make book trailers.  I use a program called Animoto (at www.animoto.com) where all I have to do is upload pictures and add my text.  Animoto provides the music and can provide some video and pictures if they fit what you have in mind.  I went ahead and splurged on the $249 subscription for a year because I make a lot of videos, and considering how much money I could spend on the music and video alone, I’d spend a lot more in the end than $249.  So this is one of those guilty pleasure things I indulge in.  They don’t sell books, but I enjoy them.  😀

So for anyone interested, here are a couple I recently did…

This is for Bid for a Bride. 

This is my updated ‘photo album’ for the characters in Return of the Aliens.  I had to change the cover at the end, and while I was at it, I added Dr. Reyes who turned out to have a bigger part than I originally anticipated.

And now for the awesome picture I found at www.dreamstime.com tonight that I just had to have!  I don’t know what book it’ll be for yet, but I am thinking it might go to one of Dave and Mary Larson’s children in the Nebraska series. 

Do you notice how their necks form a heart?  I don’t know what plot will go with this one, but I am in love with the cover.  😀

Well, that’s it for now.

    LOVE IT! LOVE ALL OF THEM! LOL… I can totally see this for either that or bosc! 🙂

    • I know. That picture is amazing. If I didn’t want to redo another proof for Bid for a Bride, I’d change the cover, but I’m too lazy to go back and change the ‘next book’ excerpt. I am thinking the picture will go for Dave and Mary’s second child. If I’m right, they had a girl. I’d have to read His Redeeming Bride again to check on that. I know they had another son named Adam. I’m sure they had a girl, too. How sad. I’m the author, and I don’t remember. :-O
