Unofficial Trailer for The Girl of Fire & Thorns


Edited to add: I was absolutely remiss and thoughtless in not thanking Heidi Bennett of The Readiacs and Twilight fandom. Heidi was the one who pointed The Hillywood Show in the direction of my book, worked with them to make it happen, and arranged to surprise me. She is a passionate reader who has helped out a lot of authors in the young adult community. Thank you so much, Heidi.


Holy cow, you guys. I’m so excited about this.

Have you heard of The Hillywood Show? I’ve been a fan for a long time. Over 5 millions viewers worldwide have enjoyed their parodies and character impersonations of popular TV shows, movies, and even rock stars. Their parody of The Vampire Diaries had me rolling with tears of laughter. And this Lady Gaga impersonation is a masterwork of modern makeup.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was to learn they are branching out into the book trailer biz. To demo their mad skills, they decided to pick a book and create a trailer. And guess what? They picked my book.

They created this in total stealth. I opened my email one day, and oualá, there it was! It was the most amazing surprise ever.  I was completely blown away, not just at their generous nature and support of my book, but at the stunning production quality.

So here it is, an unofficial book trailer for The Girl of Fire and Thorns, with huge thanks to Hilly and Hannah Hindi:
