Inquiring minds want to know? And who better to tell me than my blog buddies?
As I lurch slowly toward Royal Street‘s pub date of April 10 and my cover’s ALMOST READY to debut (really and truly), I’m looking at all the stuff my fellow authors hand out to readers. Signed bookmarks and bookplates, signed cover flats, notebooks, trading cards, postcards, pens, cups. …
Good grief, you name it, some author’s put his/her name and book cover on it and handed it out. Since I’m obviously tied to New Orleans, I thought about throwing in some Mardi Gras beads, pralines, throw cups, rum punch…nah, just kidding about the rum punch. I think that’s illegal.
As a reader, do you like getting this stuff? If I were going to mail something to you, what would you most like to get? Or do you just want to read books and not have to throw all that swaggy stuff away? I need to know these things!
And as a reward for commenting, I will send you something swaggish!
