This class provided a variety of options and tools to use for creating videos for your books, using music, voiceover and images along with text. Great tips--thank you!
I'd never considered a book trailer before I took this class. Now I definitely want one, when my book is ready for public consumption. The class was very informative, which great examples, and a nice list of resources. I hope Robin teaches this again in a longer form. It was very exciting!!
