Video Book Trailer

This month, my publisher is launching a video marketing campaign for How to Build a Better Mousetrap: Recollections and Reflections of a Family Caregiver that includes a 60-second video. This has no voiceover, just music, text, and images. If you use a screen reader, you probably won’t be able to read the text so I’ve pasted it below along with a description of the images and a link to the video. If you like it, please feel free to share on  Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media.
