Book Trailer Reviews: The Good, The Bad and the Watchable!

This 15-20 podcast talks about tips for book trailers, invites open mic for people to share their book trailer and we review some good…and some not so good…videos! We’re joined tonight by Bill Brier who called in to talk about his book video entitled The Killer Who Hated Soup. Bill is a professional filmmaker and the video is live action. We discuss the video, the importance of music to book videos and setting mood and Bill shared how he was able to get the music for his trailer at a very low cost. Bill offered to give a free copy of his book to anyone who emails him through his website at so don’t miss out on that!

We review a video that illegally used some popular music. Check it out and let’s see if you can recognize the band-
What happens when someone uses music they shouldn’t?
