Lately, I've been letting y'all know about things I'm doing. Hopefully, it'll be insight into the process. I hope it helps.
Today, the topic is bookmark or business card?
I've chosen business card. I know a lot of authors create (or their publisher creates) bookmarks to give out to readers and buyers of their books. At this point, I've decided to go with business cards.
Since my first fiction book is now available in print, I took the digital file for the front cover to my local office supply store to get business cards created.
One side will be the book cover for AngelSometimes. The other side will have info about me: my name, book name, email address, blog site, etc. You can choose to put whatever you want on the back side.
When I autograph books, I'll put a business card inside.
When my next book comes out, I'll create another business card with that book's cover and my info on the back.
Once I have two fiction books to promote, I'll put the Angel Sometimes card in the Dismembering the Past book when someone buys it. And will do the reverse when someone buys Angel Sometimes.
Although...I may change things up when the second (or third) fiction book comes out. I may at that point create a bookmark with the cover for each book on one bookmark, along with contact information. That way, I'll have one bookmark with multiple books on it.
The main idea is to give something to the reader so that if they like the book they bought, they will be reminded that you have other books they can look for.
