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

Treated like an outsider, and experiencing discrimination, Lola makes a fortunate -- albeit accidental -- run-in with Principal Hooves who tells her about the divided history of animals, and the simple truth that has since brought them all together. Once Lola realizes that there is no such thing as being too different, she goes back to school with a renewed sense of confidence. In learning to accept and love herself for who she is, Lola inspires other "normal" animals to come forward, and embrace their own perceived absurdities, too!

They're living the life that young boys and men dream of and are right at the point of having it all: a state championship, college paid for, a chance for big money and even more glory in the NFL. It's all there in front of them; the future they and everyone expects.

Then something happens that could bring it all crashing down. And they can't tell the truth because it's even worse than having to keep the secret for the rest of their lives. They make a pact to cover it up and never tell. Hiding the truth fuels their escalating addictions and pushes them in different directions as they try to erase the past, deal with the present and hope for the future.

But at some point, in some way, there's always a price paid for lies told.

Killing the Market: Legendary Investor Robert W. Wilson by Roemer McPhee



Killing the Market: Legendary Investor Robert W. Wilson by Roemer McPheeInvesting is like running a meth lab. It's very lucrative, but can blow up in your face.

That analogy, taken from the book Killing the Market, Legendary Investor Robert W. Wilson is only a taste of the high-stakes, wild ride that was the life of Robert W. Wilson, one of the world's greatest investors and a legend in the financial and philanthropic world.

Norm Goldman, Publisher & Editor of Book Pleasures says, "If you could liken a superstar Wall Street investor to Beethoven or Mozart, Robert W. Wilson would be right up there as the ideal candidate." This biographical book reads like fiction: a young man is given $15,000 from his mother in 1958 as a wedding present (equivalent to about $150,000 today) and invests the money. That begins a 40-year career in the financial market -- playing the stocks -- which landed him with a net worth of almost $1 billion before his death in 2013. Then, after making all that money, he gave most of it away. Taken from personal insight and research, McPhee combines his years of expertise in finance with that of an historian to pull together a fascinating biography that tells of a man whose instinct in the market was the stuff of myth, and whose hand played -- and changed -- much of the world as we know it.
