McCafferty Enlists Darling Fans for Promotion

megan-mccafferty-headshot.jpgIf you’ve ever watched a book trailer and said “I could do that,” now’s your big chance: Megan McCafferty is inviting fans to create a video that summarizes the plotlines of Sloppy Firsts, Second Helpings, and Charmed Thirds in three minutes or less. The videos should “bring new and forgetful readers up to speed on the action leading up to Fourth Comings,” the next book installment in the Jessica Darling series, which goes on sale in August. “I’ll blog about the most entertaining videos as they come in,” promises McCafferty (left), and the final winner will receive a tote bag filled with signed books.
