Book Trailer Contest Winners!

25 Jan

First of all, a HUGE thank-you to everyone who sent us in your book trailers! They were amazing, and we had SUCH a hard time picking our winners. Seriously–we were all blown away by their quality. For everyone interested in seeing the submissions, check out our YouTube channel–we’ve favorited all of the contest entries.

Again, this was such a hard decision–but without further ado…

Our third-place winner, and recipient of a $5.00 gift card is…

Amber Hackstadt, for DAUGHTER OF THE OCEAN!

This was a beautiful trailer–everything from the clips to the music to the text really fit the mood/feel of the story.

Our runner-up, and recipient of a $10.00 gift card is…

Aurora Blackguard, for BERSERKER!

We absolutely adored this trailer, but couldn’t award it the grand prize due to its length going over the 1-minute requirement. However, we also couldn’t ignore its seamless use of movie clips and killer music. Really fantastic job.

…And last, but not least…

Our Book Trailer Contest Winner, and recipient of an ARC of SING ME TO SLEEP by Angela Morrison, a bag of confectionary goodies (i.e. candy), and a query letter or first 3 chapters critique of your work by the LTWF contributors (if you don’t want the critique you can opt to receive a signed copy of PRADA AND PREJUDICE from LTWF’s own Mandy Hubbard!) is…

Rowenna Miller, for LINDEN HALL!

We adored the use of original photography, and the music fit the trailer perfectly. The trailer gave us a great sense of what the book is about, and even though some of us usually gravitate towards other genres, ALL of us were itching to read this book after we saw the trailer! Congratulations, Rowenna!

For our winners, someone from our team will be contacting you shortly with details about receiving your prizes!

Again, thank you SO much to everyone who entered. We were astounded and humbled by how much effort you put into your trailers, and this was SUCH a close call. We’re going to be hosting a Book Cover Contest soon, where you can submit your original/fanmade book covers, so keep your eyes peeled for contest details!

You guys are amazing–thank you for making this first contest so successful!

    Congrats to the winners!

    I’m so bummed I didn’t get to participate 😦 My computer crashed like the day after I signed up to do it… and I only got a new one yesterday, soooo I missed the deadline!

    I’m off to check out the trailers 🙂
