A writer’s second job Back to Blog
I didn’t write yesterday. (Gah! I hate admitting this!) I had to finish up some promo work for IMMORTAL DANGER. Yesterday, in her interview, Elisabeth talked about how promo work can be such a big part of a writer’s life. So very true.
With each book that I release, I experiment a bit with my promotional methods. Different ads, different mailings, etc. This time my new item is my poster. I’ll be sending IMMORTAL DANGER posters to the 700 Bookstores that Care (through RT). For my last release, I shipped out bookmarks to these stores. So, yep, this is my experiment this time.
Since I”m also planning to attend the big RT convention in Apri, I’ll be creating other promo items–T-shirts, buttons…maybe a few surprises for the event. I’ll give some of those items away here soon. So keep watching! The catch phrases that kept coming up as I think about my t-shirts and buttons? “Dragons are hot.” Or… “Vampires love dragons.” (With a fun fang, heart, and dragon tail design.)
So I’m wondering…what is the best book promo item that you’ve ever seen?Tweet It
