McCafferty Enlists Darling Fans for Promotion

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.
