Book trailers, like film trailers, are teasers for the action in the story. They are a visual representation of what some of the story is about. It’s a balance, though. You don’t want to tell the whole story, but you need to put enough crumbs out there that a viewer takes the next step and checks out the book description.
Below is the new book trailer for The 3rd Key: Sharks in the Water. The story is much more complex than this simple 47 second video, but it still piques a potential reader’s interest.
If you like what you see, please read the online book preview.
