Now here’s a cool book trailer, that’s not a trailer. It’s for Jennifer Belle’s novel The Seven Year Bitch. It simply features various women reading the book and loving it — laughing and laughing and laughing. Doesn’t this make you want to read Jennifer’s novel as well?
I bet this video has received more than the 450 or fewer views Belle’s official book trailers received.
You can easily create a similar book trailer for your book. Just gather a few friends around your home. Give them a copy of your book. Point them to a page where your book is really funny — or really sad. Have them start reading. Then record their reactions.
Of course, be sure to get a signed model release that gives you permission to use their images and reactions in a video you upload to YouTube and your website (and Pinterest, Facebook, etc.).
Why not make a viral video today?
If you do create such a video, let me know. I’ll post the video here.

I clicked through to the additional trailers they had and they’re all hilarious! And cheap, too!
