Trailer Time: Beyond the Trailer

First of all, this trailer proves that actors and movie shots don’t sell books, at least not by themselves:

Is anyone else wondering what the heck is going on?  The trailer claims to advertise a trilogy and three books are shown.  But all I know is there are a lot of people who read minds in this high school and that reading minds (and keeping secrets) is dangerous and painful.

For the record, that’s not a story, let alone three of them.

So, a moving picture isn’t enough to sell your book.  Good to know, right?

Now, take a look at the comments.  I’ll wait.

…waiting…waiting…I’m waiting…waiting…waiting…

Okay, you’re back.  Good.  So, did you see?  A good book is a good book and that’s determined by its readers, not by its trailer.

What does this mean for you?
