Why are book trailers important?

Today I  want to discuss the importance of book trailers. Book trailers, when done right, can showcase your book to potential buyers in a whole new way.

Now check out the trailer for one of my novels called The Bloody Ripper. When you’re done watching it I want you to think about what it was conveying. Did it entice your interest? What type of feeling did it leave you with?  So when creating , or hiring, someone to make a trailer for you, ask yourself this one question: “Will my trailer convince a potential reader to buy my book?”

 

 

 

 

Why should Writers talk more?

I always say a Writer is only as good as whom he/she talks to. “But isn’t writing what were supposed to do?” you ask. Sure. But talking, and more important, listening can do wonders.

Take my blog for instance. I love getting comments from people. It drives my blog. And when I respond I go over to their blogs and follow them. I learn more about them and build positive relationships in the process.

Yes I have some experience in publishing, but it’s always advantageous to see what the other Writer is talking about. You can usually learn valuable things from various sources. Fresh perspectives never grow old.

The same goes for people you meet in your daily life. Even someone you may not usually click with can offer you a new perspective on human nature. Great for character archetype construction.

And this is how you enrich your writing. By talking to others.

The Sacrifice of Writing

cropped-cropped-cropped-blog-header-ver3-tuvan-uner1.jpg

If you want to be a successful Writer it takes more than just writing books. Editing and choosing the right cover are important too as you probably already know.

But is there more? Of course. You have to sacrifice your best self and invest it in your writing. Your best self consists of your imagination, and believe me, sometimes it can take a lot just to think up enough worthy material to put down on paper.

But us writing types are used to it. I mean, how many real writers out there complain about not being able to write? Very few. The ones that do complain were never really Writers to begin with.  These are the so-called “wanna-be” types that think it’s cool to dabble in Writing. Treating it like a passing fad, instead of a sound investment in time and energy.

True Writers give their best, even when they know success is far from guaranteed. They write in the face of adversity and defeat failure even when their books don’t sell millions. Then again, very few Writers sell that many books. And for the ones that do, that’s great. But trust me when I say this that their success found them long before they made tons of dough selling their creativity to the fickle reading market. They transcended the realm of doubt and transferred the best part of themselves into a coherent story.
