This is very helpful, and sounds like a great contest! I'm glad you posted these entries--I'm finding it very instructive to look at different people approach book trailers--very timely to find this happening right here!

I opened this up to lament the fact I don't have a book or a trailer...but after scrolling through all those entries I'm going to switch gears and thank you for compiling a shopping list for me!

Hi Diane :-)

Happy New Year from Southern California. No snow here but a lot of rain storms and mud slides!

I hope you and your family had a Wonderful Christmas Celebration.

God Bless You, ~Ron

OH neat! I wish I was hip with the trailer making but unfortunately my talents are few. Cool contest though!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Wow, 18 entries! Might have to do two rounds of voting...

~Sia McKye~ said...

Okay, I wanted to vote for four of them, dammit, lol!

Most of them were good and a few were excellent. Hard to choose between the excellent ones, sigh...

This is cool, Diane.
