Book trailers are a new way of attracting readers, but most are for contemporary romance, especially romantic suspense and paranormal.
There aren’t many for historical romance, however, and I think I know why. I thought about doing one for LADY BEWARE, but I had trouble finding the right images. My covers aren’t particularly useful there, and period art, though lovely,
doesn’t quite do it. I have lots of photos of period interiors, stately homes, parks, and even costumes in museums, but it’s the people. Short of stealing images from movies, I couldn’t find pictures of people in good period dress doing something vaguely relevant to the story.
I love the idea of trailers for historicals, however, and I’ve found some on line. I’d love to hear what you think. Do you like these? Would you like to see more? Do they make you want to read the book? What would you like to see in the perfect historical trailer?
The Becketts of Romney Marshl
(This one needs something extra for me to view it, but it might work for you.)
Surrender To The Highlander
(down a bit on the left.)
Two with some magical elements.
Over to you!
