Cool Book Trailer for Delilah Marvelle's New Book!

I tried to make a book trailer, which is really like a mini-movie/Powerpoint presentation, but it has me stumped! So I was amazed and inspired by a fellow author's fabulous book trailer for her upcoming January release, Forever A Lord. You can check it out here:

Do readers want book trailers? How do you decide to buy a book? Do you choose by author, cover, or subject matter? All or some of the above? I guess I choose by author, generally, and then by the subject. For instance, I love "marriage of convenience" stories and stories with a vengeance theme. So I will choose those regardless of the author or cover. Let me know what you think!

Warm thoughts and prayers to those affected by the recent Hurricane Sandy. I hope my northern friends are all safe or else recovering!
