Book Trailers of a Fun Kind!

Book Trailers are so yesterday! Okay, not really. But I want to spice my up a bit. Do something a little different. And there are probably other authors who have done this, though I’m not sure for MG. I’ll be doing a movie type book trailer.

Book Trailer? Um, no. Not THAT kind!
 I’m writing the script (taking some of the scenes from the book and condensing to make as an attention grabber) and we’ll will be shooting at a local school—hmmm, mayber near the girls’ room?? I’ve found some girls who fit the part of my main book characters of GOSSIP. I thought, okay, actually my husband came up with the idea so I must give credit where credit is due, it would be cool to bring my book characters to life if even for a moment.

They won’t have speaking roles, just parts acted, and my son and a few of his friends will play the crush and the boy roles. Yes, they will look like the characters too. I’ll put it together as a normal book trailer, with the words on the screen, and music in the background. We will be doing this soon, and updates will be on Sofia’s blog too since she’ll be asking for more friends in the area to come out if they want to help.

BTW, today is the last day to enter Sofia’s Gossip Contest to become a character in the next book!

This sounds like a really great idea, can't wait to see it. Also... umm I LOVE this picture. I would kill for that trailer. Not really....but I'd think about it.

Good luck with that! And where can I get a trailer like the one in the photo? (before my husband decides to clear out some space in the house;0))
