Everyone knows that readers judge books by their covers, but so you know what influences them even more? Recommendations. If a friend, relative, bookseller, or librarian recommends an author, readers are more willing to take a chance on someone new.
I’ve known for years that my readers are very creative people in their own right. Now I’d like you to lend me your creative gifts and help me spread the word to new readers by creating a book trailer to promote THE ALOHA QUILT and the Elm Creek Quilts series.
A book trailer is a brief commercial for a book, just like the movie trailers you see at the cinema before the feature presentation. For this contest, you may use live action, still photos, and/or animation to encourage readers to give my books a try. You may focus on the entire series or on THE ALOHA QUILT.
Everyone who enters will receive a prize! The top ten entries will be posted on the Elm Creek Quilts website, and a Grand Prize winner will be chosen by an online vote. The Grand Prize winner will receive an autographed copy of THE ALOHA QUILT, an Aloha Quilt pin, an Elm Creek Quilts pin, and a fabric pack of my new fabric line, “Elm Creek Quilts: The Aloha Quilt Collection” from Red Rooster Fabrics.

Have fun! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
