    This is my favorite site and I have used Taylor before.

    http://www.farawaymusic.org/rights.php


    The rest of these sites come from suggestions from other Indies so I don't know a lot about them if they are free or pay sites. Check each of them out thoroughly before using them. As you use them or find them helpful or useless please comment and let us know what you think.

    Awesome list! Thanks for posting that! Do you make your own book trailers or have someone else make them for you? I would like to make one for my book but I feel a little unsure of of where to start.

    I use Wondershare, but also most computers have Windows Movie Maker on them, it does a really good job. But I make a lot of videos for Christmas and things and burn them to Cd's so I wanted something more. I bought wonder share and just love it.

    Great video! I need to get over my fear/reluctance of making videos. It does seem like videos are becoming the next big thing on the Internet. I've noticed more and more people are video blogging or vlogging. I guess I'd better get on the bus to keep up with this new trend. :D

    Back ages ago when I did a podcast, I used the music of David Arkenstone (http://davidarkenstone.com). I emailed him and told me that I could use his music for free just give him credit. Which I did. Now, I don't know if he still does that but he has a ton of music for just about any genre.

    Great list, Samantha! I've bookmarked many of those, thanks to your efforts.

    One more that I use frequently for podcast production (not sure of their TOS for trailers & videos) is Music Alley

    Again, thanks for compiling a great list.

    I like using, incompetech.com, music by Kevin Mcleod. It's royalty free and much of it is quite atmospheric, which I like as my books have spooky moments. :).
