Show & Tell Giveaway – Book Trailers

While planning for Under the Seapalooza, I was trying to come up with some fun ideas for things to and asked for input. Nikki Jefford (author of Entangled and the awesome guest post & giveaway, which you should check out: here) came up with the idea for weekly “Show & Tell” memes.

Here’s how it works:

Unlike ongoing meme’s, this one is temporary – every Thursday throughout the month of Under the Seapalooza. Each week, I’ll show off my favorite something (this week it’s bookmarks), then you show off your favorite thing and enter to win a prize.

This is the schedule for Show & Tell Thursdays:
July 25th – Bookmarks
August 2nd – eReader Skins
August 9th – Journals
August 16th – Book Trailers
I’ll be honest – I love trailers for anything. Movies, books, TV shows, you name it, and I like it. I’ve seen many book trailers popping over the last couple years, and I’ve decided to show you a couple of my favorite.

The first one is for Jenny Pox by J. L. Bryan. It’s not only a book I really enjoy, but the trailer is also super creepy and very well done.

The second one is for me Shatter Me by Taherehah Mafi, which I think is one of the raddest book trailers I’ve ever seen.

And finally, it’s the book trailer for Watersong. I know, it’s my own book, so I can’t be objective, but it’s definitely one of my favoites.

What about you? Do have a favorite book trailer? Or are you an author with a trailer for you own books? Maybe you don’t have a favorite book trailer, but you do have a favorite movie trailer. Let me know.

The Show & Tell Giveaway this week is for a $50 Visa Gift Card, so after you watch all kinds of awesome book and movie trailers, you can go out and buy yourself some of those awesome books and movies.

Enter in the Rafflecopter below. All Show & Tell Giveaways will run until August 25th. It’s open to the US & Canada only, sorry.

    I haven’t seen too many book trailers yet, but one of my favorite recent trailers was for Prometheus as well as the one for the Cinderlla Diamond Edition that’s being released, the clock ticking so so dramatic!

  • Saw the Jenny Pox trailer a while ago and loved it immediately. So much vibe!

    I love the character relationships you are showing here. It is a great way to view them in depth for me since I am highly visual. PJ

    what’s up amanda, Just left youtube and your book trailer is amazing. Very professional! One of my favorite movie trailers has got to be the Japanese animated movie, “Howl’s Moving Castle” If you haven’t seen it it’s def a must see! p.s. was in Bj’s Wholesale club today and saw your book there, the cover is very cool, it actually stood out from all the others. Keep up the awesome work.

  • I like the trailers on your blog, but found the one for WAKE the most compelling. I already purchased the eBook so it didn’t matter one way or the other, but that was my favorite.

  • The trailers are awesome! =0) Thanks for the information!

    Nice trailers. Jenny Pox was just creepy enough to keep my attention and intrigue me. Shatter Me had some great images. Wake grabbed my interest immediately and seems to fit right into my wheelhouse!
