A book trailer is a short promotional video (a commercial!) featuring videos, graphics, and music, intended to catch the attention of potential readers, and compel them to buy your book. Book trailers are far more effective than text or even graphic stand-alone ads to get someone’s attention!

Your book trailer will appear on YouTube, of course, and you’ll be able to upload it to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms. In addition, you can, of course, post it to your own website, and give other people permission to post it as well. We will not only send you the YouTube link, but will also provide you with a copy of your book trailer file to do with as you wish. Book trailers for BookLocker authors will appear on as well.



We have found that allowing us to choose the videos and photos for your book trailer is a fast process, and the author is usually thrilled with the results. The author will provide the text for each frame of the trailer. Publisher-directed book trailers provide the fastest turn-around. Authors have one opportunity to request changes to text and graphics. Additional change requests are $25 per round of changes. Once a video is finalized and approved, it can’t be changed. If an author wants a new book trailer in the future, one will need to be ordered. Non-BookLocker authors will need to provide us with a 300-dpi version of their book’s front cover. For BookLocker authors, we, of course, already have those.


Author provides photos or video(s). We are happy to incorporate stock photos and stock videos along with author-provided ones! Photos and videos must be 300 dpi and square. Square book trailers are more viewer-friendly, and work across all platforms, while landscape videos do not, particularly on Instagram.

We are flexible, of course, but book trailers should not be longer than one minute. In the fast-paced world of the Internet, viewers get frustrated if they have to wait too long for information.





Your book trailer will consist of 5 screens (that means 5 photos and/or videos appearing one after the other). Each screen, featuring either a video or a photo along with text, will last 3 to 10 seconds (depending on how long it takes the average person to read the text on that particular screen). Your finished book trailer will be approximately 25 to 40 seconds long.

Additional screens are $30 each depending on which service you chose above. If you opt for additional screens, we will send you an order form for that after discussing your needs. 

Our current turn-around time on videos is only one week. However, do not delay if you want to order a book trailer because we expect a large response to this sale. 

After you place your order, we will send you information on exactly what we need from you. Our current turn-around time on book trailers is one week.

The Facts

1. You do NOT need motion picture clips, car crashes, bombs, and the like to get someone’s attention. You simply need:

A. Moving pictures (video and/or alternating graphics) that provide an eye-catching background

B. Initial text that “hooks” the viewer, and additional text that promotes your book

C. Music that creates the mood you want to invoke in your audience

2. You do NOT need to hire professional actors, nor have voice-overs, to get viewers’ attention. There are endless varieties of stock photos and stock videos available (at no additional charge) to save YOU money!

Do NOT spend thousands on a book trailer! You can get just as many people to view a video (like the ones above) to promote your book for FAR less than the “other guys” are charging.

  1. You will own all rights to your book trailer provided it has been paid for in full.
  2. You are legally liable for all content in the book trailer (libel, defamation invasion of privacy, copyrights, etc.) with regards to text and graphics you provide to us (you are not required to provide any graphics if you want us to use our agency connection). Please ensure you have permission to use any photos you will be sending to us if you opt to not use stock images or stock videos.
  3. WritersWeekly uses a stock photo and stock video agency so you do not need to be concerned about copyright issues with regards to the images and videos we choose from that firm for your book trailer.
  4. Book trailers containing erotica or other offensive images/videos may be banned by social media platforms and even YouTube. You could even lose your social media account so, if your book is offensive or adult-oriented, check each site’s guidelines before posting.
  5. While we post book trailers to YouTube (with the exception of adult-oriented or potentially offensive ones), we can’t guarantee that a third-party website will keep a specific video online indefinitely, nor that they will accept every video submitted.
