Judith Laura has created a video trailer for the Combined Third Edition of her book, She Lives! The Return of Our Great Mother: Myths, Rituals, Music & Meditations. Her aim was to make it suitable for a book, rather than have it look like a movie trailer.
"I think a book trailer needs to be somewhat different from a movie trailer," she said, "because in a movie trailer you are showing clips of the actual movie. In a book trailer, when you show graphics they are usually not included in the book."
There are two graphics in the video that are from She Lives!: the book cover and notated song music. Laura says that for the other graphics she tried to include general--even abstract--images to give people the opportunity to use their imaginations as they do in reading a book. The author narrates the video, including reading excerpts from the book's myth-like stories and singing two of the book's songs. The youtube.com link for the video is
