Book Trailer Contest Voting - Final Round!

Final round of voting in the book trailer contest!

We are down to seven now. Select ONE trailer as the overall best. (One vote per person and no voting for yourself.)

Remember, you are judging the TRAILER, not the BOOK, AUTHOR, or GENRE!

Judge the trailers on:

Quality
Professionalism
Creativity
Perfect length
Perfect amount of information
A great teaser (like a movie trailer)
Makes you want to read the book

The voting widget at the bottom. Please view all of the videos before casting your vote. (Since everyone seems to prefer short trailers, it shouldn’t take too long!) No voting for your own trailer! Voting ends at 9 pm on Sunday, January 9. Winners will be announced Monday, January 10th.

Prizes:
3rd - The donation of my YA series to the public or high school library of your choice.
2nd - The donation of my series PLUS almost twenty other new book to the public library of your choice.
1st - The donation of my series PLUS a $25.00 Amazon gift card.

These were all very good, but I chose the one with the most appealing music and pictures and the one I'd most like to read.

Hi Matthew - and thank you!

I voted based on parameters (best trailer), but was relieved that ALL of these seemed to do well toward drawing me to the books and I think professionalism was trumped by STORY for effectiveness.

Good trailers all. Thanks for the criteria to judge by, it helped a lot. There were two that were nearly a tie.

I knew it would be tougher once we narrowed it down to seven!

I had a hard time deciding, but finally put in my vote. Great contest, and lots of fun watching the trailers.

They were all great - but I voted for my fave - which was my fave from the first round. Glad to see 2 of my faves made it to this round :)
