Nature Notes Trailer

I took the CHALLENGE to make a book trailer for the League of Utah Writers contest to advertise my Nature Notes for Kids book published back in 2010. Despite this book winning second place in the state of Utah Art Council contest and $750 in prize money for best juvenile book, I have sold few copies. Still available for only $15, click on link above to see what's inside my book on YOUTUBE.

Why make a book or movie trailer? To advertise and try to create interest. It's a lot like making an i-movie. In fact I used the same program and found it easier as the book trailer is only 3 minutes compared to my 15 minute Icelandic movie. Also it's my second time around doing this sort of thing. I added some background music from my private CD collection. Check out my efforts. I'll let you know if I win anything in the contest for the LUW happening in late September at our annual conference. Still submitting to contests and hoping to win! At least I'm learning lots!


  1. Nice work, Lin. You are always learning.

  2. That's a very impressive trailer, Lin. You did a great job on it.

  3. I am glad your books was recognized. I hope sales pick up. Are you available on Kindle?
