Welcome to Friday Night at the Movies

Send in your trailers!

Starting in the new year, Indies Unlimited will be introducing “Friday Night at the Movies.” Each week we will feature a different book trailer video on Friday night at 5 p.m. Pacific time.

Trailers will be featured once a week on Friday night. At the end of the month there will be a contest where people can vote for the “Video of the month.” No cash. No prizes. It’s all for the glory!

This is a great excuse for you to “rally the troops” and ask for votes – it’s a gentle reminder to your posse about your book.

Here are the submissions guidelines, which can also be found on our submissions page:

The Video Trailer Feature requires a 100 word book description to accompany the video. Include a link to YouTube so we can obtain the necessary HTML code. You can see an example HERE. Authors submitting a Video Trailer will have that book showcased in the IU store for one year. These features require a purchase link for Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble or some other mainstream outlet. Please include at least one of these links with your query. Trailers should not have a run time in excess of 1:30 (90 seconds).
