Are novels and commercials a successful mix?
No matter whether you found the commercials during Super Bowl 46 titillating or a bore, we can agree that soda, Progressive’s Flo, and Detroit got more screen time than novels. Of course, that is nothing new for us. Commercial advertisements for books seem limited to James Patterson (a money making mastermind) holding his latest construction and directly telling people to buy it.
While most authors who’ve “made it” traditionally have stayed away from making commercials, I have noticed during the past year that more and more indie authors are posting book trailers online.
Do you think that these trailers help indie authors? Is it possible to create a creative commercial for a book that is worthy of $3.5 million dollars during the Super Bowl?
