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
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

they and everyone expects.
Then something happens that could bring it all crashing down. And they can't tell the truth because

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