SO WHAT THE HECK IS A BOOK PREVIEW ANYWAY?
Book previews are the newest trend in book promotion and are quickly becoming one of the most popular tools for authors to get the word out about their books and for readers to sift through the millions of choices in reading material. What is a book preview, you might ask, and why would anybody watch one?
A book preview is much like a movie trailer. It's a short commercial with images, music, voice-over, sound effects and text that promotes a book. They are fun to make.
"After [I produced] my first two trailers, I found myself addicted. I started watching previews all of the place and comparing mine to others. What I quickly noticed is the wide range of previews out there, and the shortage of great sites to view them on. Most video sites inundate you with advertising and offer random samples of other videos you may not wish to watch."Kim Chatel, founder of Blazing Trailers

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT BLAZING TRAILERS:
Blazing Trailers made exciting video trailers for three of my books. As we worked together, I noticed Kim McDougall had the ability to vastly improve on what I suggested. I didn't have to worry if my suggestions were bland; she immediately offered ways to make the presentation exciting. She has a distinct way of choosing music to fit the mood of the story overall. How she selects and manipulates the photos and sound effects to tell the story in a few short sentences is nothing short of amazing. I was overjoyed with my first trailer. By the third, I was in awe of Kim's abilities and the speed with which she produces the product. Viewers have given me glowing comments about the magnificence of my trailers. I proudly say who produced them and that I will be using Kim's services for all of my books with two more coming soon. People who respond to my trailers are all referred to the Blazing Trailers website. It's beautifully professional and offers excitement about viewing so many trailers in one place. The site is user friendly. That's important when so many authors and books are listed. My books and my page are showcases. I look forward to seeing many more of my novels listed there. The Blazing Trailers website is probably the most professional site I know of for listing my books along with the video trailers. It doesn't get any better than that.
Kim McDougall of Blazing Trailers is a multitalented individual from writer to website diva, with several other talents in between. She has two of my book trailers up on her site. I was amazed how quickly she got them up, utilizing information from my websites in order to best promote my books. The end result was as pleasing to the eye as it was professional. She is always willing to help and is literally an email away. Being a most-caring person, she always has time to help. As soon as my other books are in print, I will have her put up their trailers, as well.
Blazing Trailers gives an author a chance to showcase their book videos absolutely free. All you have to do is supply them with the information and it's easy with their step by step instructions. If you have any question or need help, they're more than happy to answer your questions. The author is given an author page to showcase their videos with book covers, blurbs, reviews, and to buy links. The reader will be able to find what they're looking for by searching by genre, author or title. The site posts new releases, list chats, contest and articles. If your an author or if your looking for your next read, Blazing Trailers has it all. Stop by and enjoy!

I have all three of my trailers on the Blazing Trailers site and cannot believe how much Blazing Trailers gives to Authors on the FREE site. Each author has their own page, featuring the cover or covers of their book or books. Clicking on a cover takes the reader to a page dedicated solely to that particular book, regardless of how many trailers the author has on the site. It doesn't even end there - as well as the trailer, there is a blurb, excerpt, review, purchase link, Amazon/Kindle link if applicable, Publisher and Author website links, ISBN No., release date etc. This is something you won't find on other 'trailer' hosting sites like YouTube. I have a link in my Email signature to Blazing Trailers, and also on my Website and Blog. I also use it whenever I post on a loop (and I belong to a lot!) There is also a Blazing trailers Blog, for author interviews, and if there are any updates or awards that you want added to your Author Page, Kim McDougall makes it easy to contact her, and she is great to work with - as I said, all this for free! I can't thank Blazing Trailers enough for all they do for authors.
Kim is wonderful to work with. She pays attention to details and delivers excellent work. She is flexible to work with in terms different requirements. My book is a Chinese-English bilingual book and she put the English and the Chinese part together in a coherent way. I am definitely signing up with Kim for another book trailer for my second book.
Kim's trailers are wonderful. I would have been at a loss for how to do this myself. She was very helpful and a peach to work with. I would highly recommend her work and her Blazing Trailers site.
Kim McDougall designed a musical trailer for my picture book, "Rattlesnake Jam," and it turned out absolutely terrific. The music she chose was so cool, and it fitted the book's quirky, fun characters and plot, perfectly. Kim chose exactly the right illustrations to use, and her captions were right on the money. I would recommend Kim's book trailer expertise and talent to anyone. She is fun and informative to work with, and knows how to make your trailer tempt viewers into wanting to see and read MORE!
Kim McDougall of Blazing Trailers produced the video trailer for my book The Little Man In the Map. She did an excellent job at a very reasonable price. She took the time to find out about the book and what I envisioned. She made great suggestions and gave appropriate advice and she ended up producing a trailer that captured exactly what I had hoped. She was very pleasant to work with, and when she made a commitment she came through as she had promised. I will definitely have her produce my next trailer.
