I’m mostly busy with planting and zine stuff this week, and reviewers need time to read the book before they post anything. But in the meantime, some promos are beginning to surface, and they bring some brief topics to mind.
If you have a book trailer uploaded anywhere while you’re promoting, and soliciting any kind of blogger attention, try not to forget that the trailers exist even if it’s been a year or two. That may sound like common sense, sure, but I have to admit that when I was first offered such author spotlights I forgot about them. Yeah, the things I had specially filmed, and backgrounds specially illustrated, and a whole afternoon spent stuttering through different takes; the first time I agreed to a promo, I didn’t mention them. See if you can get them in the post.
Some bloggers won’t post two trailers. In this case, you may have to choose a favourite. While I like both of mine, I think things really came together well for Trailer 2, so that’s my go-to. Of course, if you only have one trailer, or only one newest that’s your auto go-to, you don’t have to think much about this. And if you don’t have a book trailer, this won’t come up.
