B3 in my Noon Onyx series is coming out this spring. (Release Day => May 27th!!!) I’ve been planning a few events to celebrate its release: a Release Day Party at Bitten by Books, a Blog Tour with Bewitching Book Tours, and a small Twitter contest. I’ll be offering some great prizes: Amazon eGift Certificates (or eGCs to bookstore of winner’s choice), signed copies of all of the books in the series, a fantasy book of winner’s choice from Book Depository, and some really neat, fun book themed SWAG packs. My goal with giveaways for White Heart of Justice’s release was to make the contests and prizes FUN so I hope everyone will get into the spirit of celebrating the release of this third book.
And… I finally have BOOKMARKS!!! Yep, I finally got around to making them. If you live in the U.S. and would like a set, please email me (archer at jillarcher dot com) or use my contact page to request them. I’d be happy to mail a set to the first 25 people who respond at my cost.
Bookmarks: What to Include
If you are a new author, here’s a list of things to put on your bookmarks and a tip – don’t wait as long as I did to make them! Why? Because they’re fun, easy, and great to have to hand out to anyone who wants to know a little bit more about your work. They’re like business cards, but they have awesome artwork and a practical purpose. What could be better?
- Your name
- The title of your book
- The name of the series, if it’s part of a series
- A tagline (short quote that sums up the book in a dramatic way)
- The release date
- The ISBN (for booksellers, librarians, and some readers)
- Your website
- Other ways to find you online (optional)
- Book description (optional; alternatively, you could leave space for signing them)
- Blurbs from other authors and/or reviewers (optional)
I used UPrinting to order mine (they were very helpful too; I had a tech glitch at one point, but was able to resolve by calling in) but there are lots of other companies that will print bookmarks for you. Or you can make your own.
So, folks, how about you? Do you like bookmarks? Do you use them? Do you want some?
