Book Trailers: Thumbs up or down?

I need help making a decision. I want to make a movie trailer for Dare Me, but I don’t know if it’s a good idea.

Now, when I say I want to “make” one, that means I intend to hire a filmmaker (we’re already at the planning stage). However, I’ve read so much on the topic–probably too much–that I’m now second guessing whether going forward is a good move.

Sure, having a film for Dare Me would be awesome. That’s not in question. But paying for one with the desire for it to pay for itself, is another venture altogether.

Therefore, considering the nature of Dare Me‘s content: YouTube videos, teen culture, and daredevil behavior, do you say yea or nay?

And if yea, feel free to suggest what you’d like to see.

If nay, is it because book trailers seem oxymoronic, or something else?

And if you’ve never seen a book trailer, feel free to enjoy the compilation below. They’re some of the best. Thanks.
