A book trailer is a snapshot of your book. Trailers give someone who may be interested in purchasing your book a look inside. Book trailers are short videos with an invitation at the end to buy your book.
Post your book trailers to many social media platforms to increase your traffic to your book purchase page.
See the example below of a book and the trailer that goes with it. Follow the steps to see the process. If you are interested in learning how to create these mini introductions for your book, a class is available for you.

If you liked the trailers for Bob Bumblebee and the Butterfly bush you may also like the trailer for Monarch Butterfly King of the Butterflies.
I have always enjoyed the Monarch butterfly. They are so beautiful and seem so majestic. They are called the king of the butterflies and I agree that, at least from my perspective, they are just that.
Over the years I have had the pleasure to photograph them and put albums together that show their life cycles.
The birds and other predators left them alone because the milkweed plant has chemicals that are poisonous to the other birds and animals. They weren’t safe from my cousin however, because he loved them for his butterfly collections. More here.
The trailers for the Monarch Butterfly use different templates so be sure to check each for more ideas.
Trailer Sample 1 for Monarch Butterfly is rectangle-see that video here. Version 1? Notice the difference.
Trailer Sample 2 for Monarch Butterfly is also rectangle-see that video here. Version 2? Notice the difference.

I love butterflies so much that I also have a butterfly calendar collection for 2121–2122–2123 of the most common butterflies in the USA. I have also added a butterfly garden layout and suggested plants. Each state has 36 butterflies that are common so 12 are in each calendar. These are available for download at the links below. Each calendar is $20 If you want a calendar of other types of butterflies ex: tropical I can create that for you too. You will be able to buy in my Master’s Designer/Creative Writing Strategies/Creative Writing account for my authors.
