Unfortunately I'm on dial-up, so if I was able to watch a trailer, it would come up in 2 second blurbs, as I call them. It's not worth it for me to watch any video, so it puts me at a loss, considering the fact that I would have loved to have seen your video. I can't really say whether they would sway me one way or the other, because this is something new to me. I normally go by the back jacket of the book, to see if the story itself would interest me. If I know who the Author is, I know that normally I would enjoy the book itself. If it's a new Author, I go strictly by the jacket of the book, and take a peek at a few pages of the story. Those are the clinchers for me. I would say in your case, the story line itself interests me, so I would love to read your book!! Historicals are a plus, and I appreciate the extra effort that you took to make your books a reality. History is something that must be kept alive for future generations.
Yes, I do watch the trailers on books and I do find that they entice me to read a book. Sometimes they don't give a lot of information as you said, so then you want to read the book (or see the movie) even more in most instances. I have yet to read any books by Jocelyn Green, but since I am very fond of women that have served or help in in some way with a war, this sounds like a series that I will enjoy. Would love to be the recipient of this giveaway and will definitely look into ordering. Thank you.
I peruse the shelves or online stores looking for something that catches my eye. I will read reviews in blogs, goodreads, amazon, b and n to get an idea if whether it will be "my type" of book. I am guilty of watching trailers when I get sucked into the YouTube vortex and find that I have ordered 20 books in an hours time.
I have just purchased the second book in Jocelyn Green's Widow of
Book trailers do tend to capture my interest. Being a bookworm, I can never have too many books. Every time I visit a store, I always look for their book section to see if I can find a book that catches my eye and one that I've never read before.
I like book trailers but the blurb influences me more than the trailers do. Your book sounds awesome. I love books set in the Civil War era.
Not really because when I go to a book store I just love to look at
I don't usually watch trailers for books.
Cool Article, it was very interesting.
I like to watch the trailers, when I actually see them, but
Hi Jocelyn -
Book trailers are very helpful to me. Great way to get more
OI enjoy watching the book trailers but it's the blurb that does it for me and if it's an Author I always buy.I love that your books deal with /during the civil War. It's one of my favorite times to read about. Thanks for the chance.
I have never watched a book trailer before....so to this point
I have only watched a few book trailers, and they do influence me to want to read the book. The majority of the new books I've found just reading excerpts about them when they're advertised by authors on Fresh Fiction or sent by email to me from authors. I have a long list I want to read from my favorite authors and I'm adding more and more new authors daily of books I can't wait to read! Your books sound very good, and I am now going to watch the trailers!

Book trailers are not for me. I feel like they give away too
I love trailers they get my interest and let me see what the story is going to be like.
Trailers have been a big part of choosing books. Although, when I see an author I know I dont need a tailer to make a purchase but I do enjoy the trailers.
I enjoy book trailers, but typically they do not influence my decision to read or buy a book. Thanks for visiting.
Yes they do. I love book trailers. It gives me idea of how the author sees the book.
I don't really watch book trailers.
I am much more inclined to buy books based on blurbs. If I discover a book trailer, then that is just an added bonus. It is the cover and the blurbs on books that initially entice me. Your books sound wonderful - I definitely plan to get them to read. Best of luck with them.
I purchase a book based upon the blurb, and rarely watch
I understand the purpose and ideas behind books trailers but I try to avoid them as much as possible. One of my favorite things about books is that the way I see the setting and the characters in my head is unique to myself. A lot of times book trailers show actors as the characters and that's far less fun imo. Not to mention, a good book blurb is far more enticing to a reader than a trailer ever could be.
I will watch the trailer but get much more info from the inside jacket cover.
Book trailers don't influence my decision about a book. I get most of my
Book trailers don't influence my decision in buying a book. I like to review the blurb on the back of the book and read a few pages to make my decision.
I like to look at book trailers, but it's the blurb that influences my purchase a lot more.
