When it comes to the indie publishing world, things have never been so exciting and daunting for us writers. These days, it's not enough to write a book, come up with a description, and go on social media to market it. Now, many writers are making book trailers. Luckily, I have a tech savvy husband who knows how to make anything work out whenever it comes to the computer.
We came up with this "music video" for our murder mystery "Fighting Demons: A New Orleans Mystery." I wrote the text and we both chose the pictures to show them on. I wanted the music to be slightly mysterious and more, important, it needed to be by a New Orleans musician. There are so many classics from which to choose. Ultimately, we picked Sidney Bechet's rendition of Summertime because not only is it fantastic, but it also corresponds with the mood of our story.
I've been looking at other book trailers and found one intriguing video that had each letter appear on the screen one-by-one, as if someone was typing them. I thought that it looked slightly "film noire": perfect for a mystery by Raymond Chandler, for instance.
So, without further ado, here is our music video/ book trailer for "Fighting Demons: A New Orleans Mystery."
