It’s officially Halloween, and The Haunting of Vancouver Island is one year old! And what better way to celebrate, than by sharing it with the rest of the world through a short, but deadly sweet, book trailer. There will be giveaways in the weeks to come as well.
It’s been a great year. The Haunting of Vancouver Island was on the BC Bestseller list for 42 of the 52 possible weeks it could’ve been. It fell off when we ran out of books, as we had to go to a second print sooner than anticipated. It later dropped off again, when stores had low stock. Pretty good for a book that focuses on a small part of British Columbia isn’t it? The Haunting of Vancouver Island was number one on Amazon in the “Supernaturalism” category multiple times. As far as I know, it’s never fallen off of the “Top 50” list, which is updated hourly. The Haunting of Vancouver Island is “a bestseller” in Chapters and Coles on Vancouver Island as well, sales that aren’t included in the BC Bestseller list. It’s being carried in multiple First Nations galleries, museums, and gift stores too. We are now in our third print. All of this is thanks to you! The readers.
I’ll be showing my appreciation from now until the Winter Solstice, through random once-a-week giveaways to people who share the trailer and/or anything to do with The Haunting of Vancouver Island using the hashtag #thehauntingofvancouverisland on Twitter and/or Instagram.
If you don’t have either of these channels, then feel free to like my FB page, post something similar on it, or leave a comment here and you’ll be included! I’d love to hear which chapter was your favourite, or how you learned about the book in the first place.
Samhain Blessings everyone! May it be your darkest and best one yet.
