Social Media with Sasha Soren, Episode 4!
With many, many apologies for the lateness, here's the fourth installment of our series of posts on social media with Sasha Soren!
Videos - Book trailers
Are there any visual or audio elements you can use to explain the story of the book? Videos are easy to share, and often fun to watch, so if an author has a book trailer, it'd be great to include that.
There's a book trailer for Random Magic - in fact, there are two versions of the trailer, and if anyone hasn't seen either, they're welcome to check them out here:

Videos and Podcasts - Video reviews or podcasted book picks
If you're doing a review of the book, you might consider doing a video review or reading or discussion, or a podcast about that book, or about several books connected to a single theme.
For example, here's a nice video review for the book:

It’s super because it’s informal and personal, you enjoy the blogger’s personality and have time to listen to what they’re saying about a book.
Words aren't just ink and paper, they're actually living communication - so it only makes sense to communicate info about the book in different formats. Always looking for new ways to use video and audio in connection with the book, actually.
Check back tomorrow for the grand finale of our five part series and to see what's in store for next week!
