Yesterday I posted a book trailer for Rules of Attraction
I have to be honest. Until I saw it posted on Kristin Nelson's blog, I had no idea there was such a thing as book trailers. Am I the only one who didn't know this was being done?? Granted, I haven't been trying to get published for years, but I had never heard of trailers for books before.
This is putting the cart in front of the horse, I know. The most important thing is landing an agent first, and then finding a publisher who wants to sign you to a book deal. I do wonder about book trailers though. If my lovely little manuscript becomes a book, am I going to have to do a trailer?
Computer Technology + Tracy = Match Made in Hell
What do you all think about book trailers overall? Kinda cool? Or kinda cheesy? I'm undecided.
Here are a couple that I thought were kind of neat:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzowFJTApfY&feature=related Pride & Prejudice & Zombies (because I still think the book is the most absurd thing ever)
