KAREN KINGSBURY - FIFTEEN MINUTES - ONE OF THE BEST BOOK TRAILERS EVER!



I love books. Love to read. Love the look, the feel, the smell of a book. Being a visual person, the cover of a book holds great importance. It can totally capture my attention, or cause me to look the other way.

Another aspect of a novel is a trailer. Though at times they can be disappointing, for the most part, I like to see what the main characters looks like. Even if that means the author posting pictures on their website of a famous - or not so famous – person that they envisioned to play the role.

I ran across the book trailer for Karen Kingsbury’s book, FIFTEEN MINUTES. Up until that point, I hadn’t heard of the book. After viewing the trailer, I was hooked. It has to be one of the best trailers I’ve seen, equivalent to that of a movie trailer. If every book had a trailer comparable to FIFTEEN MINTUES, I have to believe they’d sell many more copies.
What are your thoughts on book trailers?

I personally dislike book trailers. But this one is so good, I'm editing my review to include this awesome preview!

Deborah,

I do like book trailers, but they often don't live up to my expectations. This one caught me by surprise. I thought it was excellently done.

Blessings,

Kym
