Why make a book trailer, you ask? A book trailer is a simple way to bring your story to life, even a mere snapshot of your story. My book trailer is really a teaser trailer, very much a snapshot. My primary motivation for creating the trailer is because I haven't yet given my heroine's voice a chance to be heard... she does not speak at all in the the first four chapters that are currently available to the public. Since Stormriders is quintessentially her story, I wanted to create something that hinted at the events to come, through her eyes.
