Did you know that Abraham Lincoln got involved in a duel, and with a hotheaded fellow who was a pretty darn good duelist? I sure didn’t, so not only did I have a lot of fun creating the book trailer for Donna Janell Bowman’s and S.D. Schindler’s new picture book, Abraham Lincoln’s Dueling Words, I also got a wonderful insight into the character of a beloved president.

Plus, I got to bring some amazing illustration to life. A book trailer is an excellent way to promote a book: video gets shared on social media and also gets a boost for search engine results. Talk to Square Bear, both because it’s fun and also because he could help you promote your own book project.
