Let’s face it, with everyone watching video in copious amounts, it should be no surprise that the cinematic book trailer is more popular and effective for commercial fiction as well as indie authors than ever. Quality production makes for attention-grabbing, often emotional experiences for viewers. Some of the most-viewed book trailers of all time have reached millions of people! Let’s take a look at some of these fantastic book trailers and why they’re so great.
We recently paired up with Penguin Teen to produce a book trailer for David Arnold’s amazing The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik. A coming-of-age novel that details the exploits and adventures of high-schooler Noah Oakman, post-hypnosis. Ah, yes, high school. We remember when we were hypnotized too.
