Like a lot of authors, I’ve set up Google alerts. They let me know when someone has mentioned me on the internet. They don’t catch everything, but they notify me of a lot of mentions I’d never know about otherwise.
Imagine my surprise when I received an alert last February telling me that there was a book trailer for HERE on YouTube. I was sure it was a mistake, but when I clicked over, sure enough there was a fan made trailer!!! I’m not ashamed to admit that I screamed with excitement.
OMG! Isn’t this every author’s dream? To have his or her book touch a reader so much that they feel a need to express their appreciation? I worried that I’d look like a stalker, but I left a comment thanking Jennifer for her trailer. We became Facebook friends and Jennifer introduced me to BBC’s Being Human. 🙂
This past fall I asked her if she would like to read an early copy of THERE. I sent it to her a couple of days ago and she posted a surprise on a Facebook wall– a trailer for THERE!
Thank you, thank you, Jennifer Thomas!!! You did a beautiful job!
