Have a book trailer? Your author website and YouTube channel are obvious places to post, as are your social media channels. But there’s now a book trailer dedicated site where your trailer can live, too! BookReels lets readers preview their next book purchase the same way movie lovers preview upcoming attractions – with trailers!
Even if you don’t have a book trailer, BookReels offers you other video options for readers to view, including author interviews and live readings. Over twenty genres are included on the site, covering a range of works from classics to hilarious contemporary biographies (like Tina Fey’s Bossypants). Bookreels vary in style and delivery from home-made to professional productions and help provide an outlet for self-publishing authors on a shoe-string budget as well as a platform for the seasoned, best-selling author.

BookReels’ Back Story
BookReels, like all innovations, began with an idea. It also began with two people, Dan Rosen and CV Herst. Dan is an accomplished Hollywood screenwriter and director, and avid social media user. A few years ago, Dan found himself filming a number of book trailers for friends. Discussing this with fellow MFA writing program, friend, and biotech entrepreneur, CV, the duo came up with the idea to create a unique website where authors could easily promote themselves and sell their works while simultaneously making it easy for book lovers to browse their next purchase.
BookReels is still in its early stages so it’s an ideal time for WWW authors to get signed up and upload your trailer or author interview! Need a book trailer? We can help! Visit author-marketing-services/video-book-trailers for more info.
