Win a manuscript critique from a professional editor from Deadbirds.
DeadBirds is passionate about books and believes in supporting authors and publishers in making quality book trailers and covers at affordable prices.
In this day and age, it is more important than ever to engage your reader, and marketing has become an essential part of selling books. Penguin and HarperCollins have seen a significant increase in the number of trailers produced as cinematic book trailers capture the essence of a book, drawing potential readers in quickly and effectively by turning the written word into an engaging visual, which adds to author visibility and branding, supporting a multimedia digital marketing campaign.
Deadbirds.Net has worked with many authors to make their novels come alive on screen through attention-grabbing book trailers. They also work with authors to create eye-catching book covers and book cover animations for both print and e-books.
"I'm always hesitant to spend money on someone I haven't met. I've had bad experiences and I tend to think I know better than others. But after an unsuccessful round of queries, I decided to look for an editor. I saw Michele comment on a writer's tweet. Her comment offered editing services, but didn't do so in a salesperson pitch. I liked this and took a shot.
My experience with Michele has been fantastic. Her feedback was thorough and extremely helpful. What I really love about the experience is that I felt like Michele was truly invested in my work. I knew by the end that she read every word in my book and tried to understand every character and the plot. She still checks in to see how revisions and querying are coming along, something she certainly doesn't have to do. But she wants to. That is the person I have come to see in Michele. She's professional and personal. She offers constructive feedback and cares. I know that she wants to see my book published because she knows that work I've put into it.
I have nothing but great things to say about Michele. She's also helped build my social media following by tagging me in tweets--another thing she certainly doesn't have to do.
Simply put, Michele is great and I truly appreciate her."
