Quirk book has been innovative in marketing its Zombie books.  This article gives an insight into how Web 2.0 marketing works: Pride and prejudice and book trailers: How Quirk Books puts book trailers to use and measures their success.

Brent Cohen, Vice President of Quirk Books, the publisher of the Jane Austen Zombies mash ups: his quote about Zombies book trailers:
Essentially, we are creating a marketing asset that we want others to enjoy and share on the web. So, the success of a book trailer can immediately be measured by views and channel subscribers. It can also be measured in how many times it was embedded on other sites and viewed there.
