I’m so very excited to launch my first book trailer, which I made myself using Windows Movie Maker.  Have a look! Don’t forget that you can click the symbol at the bottom, right-hand corner for full-screen viewing.


  1. Very nice! I especially love the music–it fit perfectly.

    • Thanks Anna! Your blogging about your process really helped me!

  2. You did a great job making your trailer, and thanks again for sharing the whole experience with us. It was fun to see the examples you posted earlier come together in the final product. Nice work!

  3. Thanks Lena,

    Your book sound fascinating. I’m looking forward to buying it when it come out. Great job on the trailer. Go you!

    • Thanks Shellie!

  4. Nicely done! I’ve really enjoyed seeing this video come together and reading about your process. The moving images you chose are so evocative and I like how the blizzard snow is used at the beginning and end (great sound effect with it, too!) The music is a perfect choice!

    I’m about halfway through with Witchlanders right now, btw, and I’m LOVING it! Thank you so much for writing such a great book!

    • Oh wow! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it!

    • Ha! I’m getting pretty impatient to get my hands on it, too! Thanks Dawn!

  7. Great trailer. I’m a DIY’er, too. I love WMM.
