From Best Book Trailer to Book Events Circle of Seven Productions Sweeps up in Awards

BRENTWOOD, Calif., Aug. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Book Trailers® promote books through video and are created to both entertain and inform readers about books prior to purchase or as a fun way to create conversation in the online universe that is social media.  Though each year the publishing industry asks the question, "Do book trailers® work?" the public continues to find them interesting and worth discussing, sharing and even voting on.

This year, the top producer of Book Trailers®, Circle of Seven Productions, the company that not only popularized the book trailer® market but also holds the US registered trademark for the term "book trailer", hit the jackpot in trailer awards with six wins only halfway through 2011.

New WebsiteWith an eye toward better communication with the specific visitor types to the Circle of Seven (COS) Productions website the company has made significant changes to its corporate website. 

“We want those people who visit the site to feel at home there, so we changed the way we deliver information and created a way for people to interact with that information,” says founder and CEO Sheila English.

While assisting Nancy Holder as she developed her new book trailer for The Screaming Season, due in March 2011, I realized how little I knew about this strange new-media marketing tool. Book trailers have been cropping up here and there, announcing the coming of this book or that novel for the last several years. The more I learned about this new type of media promotion, the more I was blown away by the sheer potential of a 30-second video clip, specifically designed to market a new book.


Fresh Fiction has teamed up with Circle of Seven Productions for greater outreach and offerings to readers!


Zombie Today Show Wins Empixx Award


The Zombie Today Show web series promotes books, laughs and wins awards!


“Well written.. I think it's satire. But, maybe, just maybe, it's real.” Jokes the EMPIxx Award judge, “Captured my attention, well produced.” The series won for Best Comedy and received the Gold EMPIxx Award.


Neverland wins EMPixx Award


Neverland is novel by best selling author Douglas Clegg. It's an eerie tale of children who find something evil in the woods during their family vacation. The end of the trailer has a child's voice whispering, “It's just a little sacrifice.” It's enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
