Book Trailer for SOAP, SOAP, SOAP!

I've finally done it - I've created a book trailer for my first picture book as both illustrator AND author, SOAP, SOAP, SOAP ~ JABON, JABON, JABON! This is my first attempt so I'd love some feedback. Does the music work for you? How is the color? Does it make you want to rush out and buy the book!?

Speaking of which - SOAP will be officially released on September 25th and I am busy putting together promotions to get the word out! I'll have a Blog Book Tour, and am reaching out to librarians, reviewers, and bookstores. (Something new: I can send reviewers and book buyers an e-galley if you like!) I'm also thinking of other media like radio, tv, etc. Do you have any contacts you wouldn't mind sharing? Oh - and feel free to forward this link, link to the book trailer, and/or embed it in your own sites if you like. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer in getting the word out about my first picture book as both author and illustrator! Woohoo!

This is wonderful. The music really captures the feeling of the story and art. My only thought is, are you revealing the ending? Since I haven't yet read it, I don't know, but you want this to be a teaser so folks will want to read the book to see what happens. Otherwise it's great.

e, the book trailer is slick - teases at the story, but does not give enough away to substitute as "Cliff Notes".

I agree with everyone else, it's a great book trailer. And the music feels perfect. -- It does not seem washed out on my computer. -- As always, you've done an excellent job.

Max (6) said it makes him want to read your story - he "would read it a lot".

The trailer is awesome, just perfect. I have never seen your work before nor do I know you, it helps to have someone you don't know give you a thumbs up!

Good luck, I will watch for future updates!

Elizabeth, I really like this idea of a trailer for a book! The music is wonderful however I have to tell you that the pages with words flip quickly. I'm a fast reader and at the beginning where you had more writing, I definitely didn't have time to read it all.

Much success to you...I have no doubt you will achieve it!

Great trailer, e! I know I already left a comment on PBAA's list(or somewhere, can't remember) about it but just wanted to put my name in the hat for the free book as well! :0) The music can sometimes be tricky finding the feel for the story but you nailed it! Great work!!

I can't get the trailer to work on my school computer. Is there anything that I might be doing incorrectly. I would love to view it and I would love to win a signed book! Our students so enjoy the Tuesday coloring pages. So do I!!

Thanks so much everybody!!
Lisa, You should also be able to see the video on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDWiVxAFtXA . My only other guess would be that you're on an older computer?

There's a lot of real action in the story. I like the color, it's bright and exciting. It's fun to hear the music playing as the video plays. I would buy it for myself and my grandson to enjoy ;-)Janet
