The Finding Claire Fletcher Book Trailer and Other Awesome Stuff

I'd like to thank Carrie A. Butler for her help with this.  I actually made my own trailer and then sent it to her for approval.  She worked her magic and this is the result!  So thank you, Carrie for saving my technologically challenged butt once again!

Voila!



Some other awesome stuff:

The winner of my Something Amazing Giveaway, who will receive a signed copy of Finding Claire Fletcher is . . . Prosecutor's Discretion!  Yay!  I will be in touch!

If you didn't win, don't be discouraged.  I'm running a Goodreads giveaway and will be giving away more signed copies in the near future!

You should also check out the I Miss You Blogfest going on today, being hosted by super bloggers, Alex J. Cavanaugh, Matthew MacNish, and Andrew Leon!  It looks like a good one!





Also there is a cool new group that's been formed called Writers 4 Writers courtesy of Stephen Tremp, Mary Pax, C.M. Brown, and Christine Rains which is designed to:


• Help writers bring awareness of their book(s) to tens of thousands of new people
• Help writers reach Amazon Top 100 in at least one category (suspense, free, whatever)
• Increase sales of their book(s) after the promo is over
• Drive new traffic to their blog and increase following
• Create verbal and viral buzz.

Every month, one to three spotlighted authors will choose a social media avenue such as Twitter or Facebook (or both).  On the selected day, the authors will post pre-written Tweets on their blogs.  At your convenience, simply copy and paste Tweets into Twitter. Or go to #W4WS on Twitter and Retweet other Tweets.

And for Facebook, the authors will also post an image of their book along with a short blurb and a link to Kindle on their blog. Visitors simply click the Facebook page then share the link with their FB friends and Writers Groups.

That’s an incredibly large new audiences the author could not reach on their own.  Imagine, a hundred bloggers over a few days Tweeting and sharing links for new books and reaching potentially tens of thousands of new people!




And their first featured writer is none other than my bestie, the amazingly talented Nancy S. Thompson!  Woo hoo!  I can't think of a more deserving writer to kick things off!

BTW you can get her book here.  You won't be sorry!
