Okay, I'll 'fess up. I don't much like book trailers. The ones with just pictures and text bore me. The ones with live action rarely impress me. Twang twang goes the public domain music as pictures of pouting models zoom in and out like manic cue cards.
Take this one. I like the idea. Some of the scenes are clever. But the excerpt is clunky ("as they call it?") and the technique of the spanking is half-hearted at best. Rather than luring me to buy the book it makes me wonder how much the author really "gets" spanking. I mean, it's not bad--but it isn't exactly good either.
Have you seen any book trailers (not your own) that actually made you decide to buy a book, or at least made you more interested in it? Or hell, were just enjoyable to watch. Please throw me a link or two.
p.s. when I searched for the top rated youtubes for romance+book the first three results were for Deborah Macgillivray books. Go figure.
