Author Video at Author's Location


Connecting with potential readers is a vital part of marketing your book, but it’s impossible to be everywhere you would like to be when promoting your book. Trafford is proud to offer our new author video service. An author video gives you the chance to speak to potential readers through film about your book and why you feel it’s worth buying. Our author videos help readers get to know you, the person that crafted the book, making their interest in your story greater. Filmed at a location of your choosing, your video will be produced by industry veterans.

When you buy the Author Video service, you get:


  • a 90- to 120-second custom-made, creative author video
  • placement of your author video on YouTube.

REVISIONS: You will be able to make one round of revisions to your video at no additional cost. Any additional rounds of revisions will incur a charge. Acceptable changes include:
