Until recently, I never paid much attention to book trailers. I regarded it like reading a magazine article about a new candy bar to see if you liked the flavor.
But now that I’m thinking past completing my novel, I’m starting to pay attention to book trailers. I watch nearly every one I stumble upon. Some are intriguing and some not.
But the big question in my mind is: “Do book trailers actually affect book buying decisions?”
So please, help me out by completing the poll below. And please, add your comments below.
By the way, here is one of the better book trailers I recently viewed.

Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can’t help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she’s never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.
But now she’s moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.
Only she can’t. Because even here, he finds her. That’s how desperately he wants her back. She knows he’s no guardian angel, and his dark world isn’t exactly heaven, yet she can’t stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.
