What exactly is a book launch team? And furthermore, how do you launch a book?
Well, I'm glad you asked.
Think of it as a birth. A baby coming into the world. Fresh and new. Most times with a cry. And of course, with (adoring) parents. And grandparents. And siblings. And a host of friends and family who are waiting with bated breath for the delivery.
Do they keep it to themselves? Of course not. It's a time to rejoice and share the news with others!
After watching a few professionally produced book trailers on YouTube, the thought occurred to me that I could attempt it myself. What did I have to lose? Having created a video about adoption using iMovie (and helped by those Apple genius guys available at the store) I was able to learn basic techniques and pull together a fairly decent video. But was that different from a book trailer? Yes. And no.
Spoiler alert: Withstand the temptation to scroll down. ;-}
It's time to reveal the cover of The Heart Changer! I think the process involved in creating an image to suit a story will fascinate you. So, stick with me and be patient, okay?
My MG Biblical fiction "The Heart Changer" debuts Spring of 2019 with Ambassador International. Follow my journey by signing up above. I'll be looking for a book launch team soon, and you may be just the person to help out.
