They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but a film is worth a million.

Book trailers are incredibly powerful vehicles for communicating the nature and emotional trajectory of a story. When an author comes to me for a complex trailer, I work with the author to understand the arc of the story, the imagery of the setting, and the characters. This takes time. Which means the overall effort can take several weeks.

But just like a great story doesn’t emerge overnight, neither does a great book trailer.

Simple Trailers

Shannon is happy to talk with you about producing a simple book trailer for your great works! Check out this example.

Go to the Book Trailers page to see more examples.

Complex Trailers

Sometimes you just want to WOW your potential customers by drawing them into the experience of the story. What better way to do that than with an awesome book trailer? Complex book trailers are great at giving hints and recreating the emotional trajectory of your book without giving away the plot.

I am thrilled with both the book cover and book trailer that Shannon produced for my novel Touch.

The whole process has been fun, from creating a mood board and choosing the music, to the anticipation and delight at seeing the end result.

Shannon is friendly, professional and always approachable to work with. She led the project with creative assurance while continuing to include my ideas. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Happy Customers

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Capturing both the genre and spirit of your book is incredibly important to me. I find the collaborative process to be the best approach. Why? Because I don’t know everything and I want to be sure you get the cover that’s going to catapult your book to the top.

Shannon designed the cover of my most recent book, ‘Fresh Start.’ The first thing I would say is that the design and cover creation process went really smoothly. Shannon interpreted the brief exceptionally well and designed an outstanding cover. She also added a huge amount of value by providing input on the title and blurb copy. Overall, cost-effective, efficient, friendly service, and great design. I highly recommend Shannon for both cover and advertising design.

Suffering from Creativity Squelch

It seems apropos to write about creativity given the recent struggles I’ve suffered (oh woe is me) as I attempt to complete my first fiction project as Kathryn Wise. Inspired by Henry Drummond’s chapter entitled Clairvoyance in his book The Ideal Life, I chose to...

The Ten Most Important Things – No. 3: Creativity is a Powerful Multiplier

The Ten Most Important Things – No. 3: Creativity is a Powerful Multiplier

There was this guy who’d been flown in from the East Coast to “help” us set up the operations of a huge project. He’d been teamed up with one of the local corporate process-tyrants, and together they looked like my next big problem. Why? Because I walked by the guys office one morning and overheard him say, “We’ve got to watch out for these people. They’re very creative.” I was shocked, but then again, people are people and sometimes having control is more important than seeing the problem clearly and allowing creativity to help drive out a solution.

The Ten Most Important Things – No. 2: It Takes Vision

The Ten Most Important Things – No. 2: It Takes Vision

I once worked for a boss who loved to come by my office and throw out ideas. It wasn’t helpful, but I listened attentively, and nodded with a feigned interest until he had finished and departed to go search out his next victim. I never followed through on those ideas, and he never came back and asked me about them. Instead, I wrote a damn good report and when he read it, he gained the benefit of knowledge. You see, I had journeyed into the trenches, I had talked with the people involved, I had reviewed the data, and I knew what the problem was. He didn’t. Until he read my report.

The Ten Most Important Things – No. 1: It’s Not About You

The Ten Most Important Things – No. 1: It’s Not About You

I suppose one of the most difficult mindsets to take hold of and keep a grip on is that it’s not about you. Yes, you’re the person who formulates the vision, divines a strategy, crafts a plan, and designs the machine that executes the project, but really, it’s not about you. It can’t be about you because if it is, you’ll become distracted and drop the ball. And then it will be about you. And you don’t want that.
