You tell me. Colleen Gleason has a trailer for her Gardella Vampire Chronicles
on her website. The end of the trailer says that the books are "Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Pride and Prejudice." This is a Hollywood conceit, mixing two very popular items as a selling point, and Hollywood has traditionally been very liberal with its descriptions of movies. Showgirls is like All About Eve crossed with Pretty Woman! I don't know if authors are paying for the trailers, or if their publishers are picking up the tab, but I'd like to know if they're effective.
