Today is National Advice Day, I just made that up, but I could use some. Book Trailers 101. I’m speaking to you Indie writers and small publishing authors because I think you can feel my pain. If you are one of those gifted people who work 60 hours a week, turn out voluminous novels at night, still manage to work out every day, skydive, gourmet cook on the weekends, and run two businesses on the side, then maybe I don’t need your advice because I already had a nervous breakdown. I’m talking to the tortured poets, the angry short story writers, the vengeful cubicle dwellers. Anyone who does their own promos. If you have advice on programs (especially not those incredibly hard ones like Photoshop or Corel) or know of sites that have quality backgrounds and video clips in the public domain (free is always good :), then by all means, please share that advice. I am posting a rough (very rough) draft that I have on my upcoming book. I hope to get a friend who is a sound person (don’t know the tech name for that) to better mix the music with maybe a cheering football game track in it. Hopefully. Not sure if I will keep the music that I have in there now, I was just able to use the Rock Guy’s stuff and not have to worry about copyright. Also, if you like original hard rock music, please consider dropping by the Rock Guy’s band page and liking it:
Thanks in advance for your comments!
