What Kind of Video do you want to make? Here is a short review of types of videos that would work for fiction books:

  1.  Your book’s blurb divide it into a video
  2.  Favorite Scenes of the book
  3. Pick out several conversations in the book that hint at the  book’s story.
  4. Focus on a lead character at the start of the book showing how she/he got in some trouble which leads to the rest of the book.
  5. Spotlight short scenes in the book
  6. Author Interview see previous blog post.
  7.  Make a video to focus on your target audience make connections to the book to their lives.
  8. Make a video book review for an author friend and ask him or her to do the same for your book.
