Book Trailers
A Great Way To Promote Your Book via YouTube

One very effective tactic to promote and publicize your book is to create a “Book Trailer.” A book trailer is like a movie trailer in that it allows someone to preview a book both visually and via audio. A video book trailer brings the book to life and gives the potential reader a sneak peak at the contents. Westwind Communications will then post that book trailer on YouTube and... here’s the best part, we’ll add it to more than 100 additional video sites online for even greater exposure.

Besides the immediate visual impact another big benefit of a book trailer is how is improves search engine ranking for an author’s main web site. The book trailer on YouTube becomes searchable by key words which are carefully selected to attract interest and drive more traffic to your web site or your Amazon page.

We’ve have had terrific success with book trailers with some obtaining 77,000 views in a matter of days. One of my client’s videos in the music genre has had 1.7 million views of his video on Teacher Tube alone.

Check out examples of book trailers we’ve commission or distributed below or visit the Westwind Communications YouTube Channel at: http://www.youtube.com/thebookpublicist

Light of The Desert ~ Lucette Walters

This unspoken law allows men the right to kill their daughters or female relatives without consequences, if it is believed that they have dishonored their family name. Noora Fendil, the favorite daughter of an influential Middle Eastern businessman, becomes the target of such a crime, and her incredible escape and evasion of those bent on taking her down are the crux of this engaging new novel by Lucette Walters, "Light of the Desert" (ISBN 978-1-4259-7749-8 2007 AuthorHouse, 593 pages, $33.99, www.lightofthedesert.com

Sikander ~ Salahuddin Kan



SIKANDER, is the sweeping tale of the son of a Pakistani middle-class family. It's 1986. Seventeen-year-old Sikander, dreams of studying and living in America, but in a blind rage after a family quarrel, he leaves his Peshawar, Pakistan home. Encountering mujahideen warriors, he joins them in their fight against the occupying Soviets in neighboring Afghanistan.

American assistance is stepped up with advanced weapons, like the Stinger missile, and the mujahideen begin prevailing against the Soviets. After just two years following Sikander's arrival, a Soviet withdrawal begins and Sikander returns as a war-wise hero, settling down to build a normal life in Pakistan.

Discovering romance, SIKANDER, becomes a happily married successful entrepreneur in Pakistan, when he finds his life abruptly thrown into turmoil as he's caught up in aftermath of 9/11. He must draw on the lessons from his mujahideen past as he takes on a perilous journey reaching as far as America, changing his life forever.

SIKANDER takes us from the pricey suburbs of Peshawar to the primitive war-torn landscape of Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, to the placid serenity of Scotland, through the camps of Guantanamo, and finally, corporate America. It is a 21 year journey through freedom and captivity, love and loss, wealth and poverty, dignity and humiliation, and transgression and redemption. A rare glimpse of a non-radical mainstream Muslim's experience of the West, SIKANDER is a journey of growth and self-discovery, and will touch the humanity of its readers.

Grady Harp, a Top 3 Amazon reviewer, adds: "Were there more novels like this astonishing, absorbing and challenging one by M. Salahuddin Khan then perhaps the confusion and chaos of the world response to the seemingly endless wars of the past decades would ease. Khan launches the reader into a maze of pathways of understanding just why we have become so confused and overwhelmed by the cross-section of Christian and Islam beliefs. In ultimately narrowing this epic to the interaction between an American soldier guard and an innocent Pakistani detainee, Khan ... allows us to see the madness of war and its consequences on individuals no matter what their prior backgrounds can mean. This is a book that will affect the thinking of all who are fortunate enough to read it, providing a path to understanding and appreciation for human rights"

Duane Evans, a former CIA Officer and author of North From Calcutta says "Intricate in detail and vast in scope, SIKANDER is a journey worth taking.."

The Sacramento and San Francisco Book Review calls SIKANDER and "An epic novel, reaching across the years of conflict in Afghanistan, from Soviet occupation to the post-9/11 years. Khan's depictions of everyday Afghan life... provides an eye opening look at something often glossed over in search of easy depictions of good and evil."

Often compared to Kite Runner, Sikander offers a fresh perspective on America's longest war.
