Wattpad Is Helping Me Promote My Book!


My good friend Jenni (James) and I joined Wattpad. (She'd had her book stolen and posted there - crazy story, actually. It became one of their most popular books. The site found out the book was stolen and contacted her, and she's had a LOT of success with the readers there.) Anyway, I've had so much fun on Wattpad. The readers are awesome. They're energetic, full of life, and have given me amazing view points on my book.

Last week, Wattpad approached me and offered to help promote my book. I'm so excited I don't know what to do with myself! :-) We haven't fully worked out the details yet, but for starters, they're having me put together 18 YouTube videos (one for each chapter of my book), and will be airing those on their site. They're basically leaving the theme of the videos up to me.

So . . . Now I have to decide what to do with the videos. I can't have them all be about my book - that would be like ramming cilantro down someone's throat. Any suggestions?

Also, I need to put together a book trailer. My source isn't sure he can help me. Do any of you know where I can get things rolling for this? I'm not sure it'll be possible to get one together in the amount of time I have, but I'm going to try anyway. It won't hurt, even if it's not done before the 28th.

Thanks to all of you for your support!
