Unforgettable Weddings by @JoanReeves #GemsInAttic

Good morning! I'm a bit late getting this post up. I'm on the final edit of my new book Second Chance Bride, Book 2 of All Brides Are Beautiful, so all my time is spoken for.

No matter how tired I am, I'll have it ready to submit by the deadline though.

Video Break

I had to take a break yesterday and put together the video for Unforgettable Weddings, the latest box set collection which contains my book April Fool Bride.

I really love making videos, but the timing was a little difficult for me this time. Here's the video. Click it and let me know if you like it! Hopefully, it will make you buy Unforgettable Weddings!

After you watch the video, scroll down for some tips on how to make an effective video book trailer, plus a Giveaway offer.

Video Tips

1. Make it short. A successful video should be no more than 60 seconds.

2. Make a separate image for the YouTube Thumbprint. That's what you call the image that appears next to the video in a list on YouTube.

3. Think about the theme or the branding of the product, i.e., your book or box set, and decide what kind of impression you want the viewer to receive from the video.

4. Select great music that isn't too fast and frenetic or too slow and draggy. You want the music to move the story along.

5. Have a good image to introduce your video and an equally good one to end your video.
