When Life Gives You Lemons, Make a Kick-Ass Book Trailer

Mitali Perkins mentioned this briefly the other day and I figured it would fit in nicely on Sunday.

Basically, this is a trailer for The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davis. It is simple. It is direct. It is relatively inexpensive. And it is one of the best examples I've ever seen of advertising your book in an ultimately classy, extraordinary way.

Two thumbs way way up for this trailer then. I don't know if it was created by Davis herself or if this was the brainchild of Houghton Mifflin. Regardless, whoever thought it up should receive full credit.

Now please send me an ARC. I haven't read many "fun" books lately and this one sounds delicious.

Betsy, I can answer that question for you, because Jackie is a friend of mine. She did it herself, with a little bit of technical assitance! I know because I asked her if the person who created it was a pro movie trailer person. It is great--I agree 100%!!

Shoot, man. She should teach a class on this. SCBWI should pay for her to visit all their conferences explaining to up-and-coming authors how to sell yourself. She's got the goods.
