Love in the Time of Amazon

A question for all the authors in the audience–how often do you check your Amazon rankings?

In this heartwarming book trailer, a husband and wife (both writers) created a video that will make Amazon ranking-obsessed writers laugh out loud.

The trailer is embedded above, a homemade promotion for The Tourist Trail by John Yunker and Forgetting English by Midge Raymond. They describe the video as “a cautionary tale about husband-and-wife authors, ‘Love in the Time of Amazon.com.”
