Literary Book Trailers That Should Make You Want to Buy Books
Book trailers are becoming increasingly popular and maybe even necessary for works of literary fiction and creative nonfiction, even poetry.
Whether they are created by students in college-level literature classes, fans of great books, the author’s themselves or big publishing houses with huge budgets, the trailers intention is to inspire reading a book.
In that respect, they can’t be a bad trend.
Anything that encourages the public to buy a book and read it is all right with us.
