How to Create Buzz for Your Book?

It’s official! My book is coming to the Amazon Kindle Store in November 2017 and whilst this is pretty exciting (and scary at the same time) I am consumed with trying to think of some way to create a bit of buzz around the publication – since there won’t be a physical book launch party in the same way you would have one for a traditionally published book. So, I tried my hand at making a book trailer using public domain images and Creative Commons CC0 licensed videos (which can be used for commercial purposes and don’t require attribution). The soundtrack comes from Youtube’s creator studio and is one of the tracks that are attribution free. I know that it’s not the most professional-looking trailer the world has ever seen but, for a limited budget production, I would say that it does the job. Thoughts?

    1. Thanks so much. I am still in editing hell. But having a deadline that is non negotiable really helps. Glad you liked the trailer. Yes, it’s quite incredible what one can put together on the net. Sadly Stupeflix is going to close down next year 😦


      1. I read your comments and thought I might help you with creating and editing videos. Since I was also using Stupeflix, after they’ve decided to close down for good, I had to choose another platform. After days of research I’ve found a new tool called Picovico. I hope it will help you.
