The reigning queen of paranormal fiction is leading the way in book promotion. Christine Feehan’s newest novel, Dark Demon, made the #2 spot for all fiction in the nation. Only Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code could keep her from the #1 spot. But, Christine Feehan is no stranger to bestseller lists. Over the last few years, her books have gained more and more popularity, topping NY Times, USA Today, and many other bestseller lists.
Without a doubt, it is Feehan’s storytelling skills that keep readers coming back. Her popularity has caused fans to create Internet groups and role-playing sites for her Dark Series. The Dark Series, her most popular, highlights a race of Carpathians who, if they do not find their lifemate, turn vampire. It was this series that caused Publisher’s Weekly to credit her with the success of the vampire fiction genre.
Her Ghostwalker Series, a paranormal military suspense-thriller, gained immediate success and her fourth book in the series, Conspiracy Game, is due out this year.
But, in addition to being a prolific and successful author, Feehan has blazed the trail for many new and exciting marketing ideas. Many industry magazines have noted the brilliant marketing and promotional ideas she has brought to the industry. Her website alone has readers, writers, editors, and industry leaders coming back again and again to see what’s next. Since implementing her marketing plan, her online member list has increased 700%. From screensavers to an online interactive game called The FOG (Feehan Online Game) and from audio to video, her site is the benchmark that others strive to achieve.
Feehan has used book videos called Book Trailers® as a catalyst to set her books apart. Each video provides a visual synopsis of a book to stimulate the viewer's imagination. This has brought in a number of new readers and has garnered media attention. To date, Feehan has had numerous television commercials aired and two of her Book Trailers® have played in movie theaters.
Not since Anne Rice has there been such popularity for an author of vampire fiction. Circle of Seven Productions, who produce Feehan's commercials, is working toward submitting a screenplay to promote her Dark Series for television, in the style of the cult classic, Dark Shadows. In addition, Hollywood executives have expressed interest in obtaining film rights to her Ghostwalker series.

“…an electrifying read, one that should satisfy her fans and cement her reputation as the reigning queen of paranormal romance.”-
“After Bram Stoker, Anne Rice, and Joss Whedon (who created the venerated Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Feehan is the person most credited with popularizing the neck gripper…”-
