FAQ

Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:

General

What is BookTrailr?

A few months ago we were surfing the web for the latest book trailers. We were jumping around all over the place to find them, from YouTube, author websites, publisher pages – and it hit us. There was no single place that collected and categorized book trailers to make it easy for readers to watch and find their next read. So we decided to create that place, and we call it BookTrailr!

Our goal is to make it easy for readers, librarians and teachers to find awesome book trailers and “visualize their next read”!

Can I submit a Trailr?

Yes! We try to keep the site updated with all the latest (and past) book trailrs, but there’s no way we can catch them all. So we’ve opened up a submission form so anyone can submit a trailr. Just go to the Submit a Trailr page, read the guidelines and send in your submission!

Submitting a Trailr

Does the Trailr need to be on YouTube?

Yes. All trailrs must be available on YouTube to be submitted. If your trailr is not available on YouTube and you own the content, click here for instructions on how to create a Google account so you can upload it.

Does the book need to be available on Amazon?

Yes. To make the submission process quick and simple, and to ensure accuracy, our system pulls most of the information about the book from Amazon, based on the ASIN or ISBN-10 provided in the submission form.

Do you accept eBooks?

Yes! As long as your eBook is available on Amazon.com (U.S.) we can add it to our collection.

Rating Trailrs

How do I rate a Trailr?

Right under the YouTube player you should see “Rate this Trailr” with 5 stars under it. Simply click on the star rating you’d like to give the trailr to add your rating.

Can I leave comments along with my rating?

Yes! Please feel free to leave your comments in the comments section at the bottom of the post.
