Sticky: Susan needs bookmarks!


This is a sticky post; scroll down for the new stuff

I like to tuck a bookmark or two inside of the books I mail out via the various book trading sites. It’s an easy way to promote authors, especially authors who aren’t in the mainstream yet. (yet!)

I’m running low.

Are you an author? Are you friends with an author? Are you a bored reader who’d like to cause trouble by finding authors who have bookmarks to send out?

Get in touch and I’ll give you the famed West of Mars PO Box address (located nowhere near Mars) because I need bookmarks!!!!

Yes, postcards and other promo items are eligible for this offer of free publicity, but I can’t always tuck them inside a mass-market sized book.

And if you’re an author but don’t have bookmarks or other promo materials, why not? Don’t you know I want to help spread your name?????

    I never knew Authors had promo bookmarks! I’ve written a few who’ve sent me some autographed stickers to put in the books though. Very clever.BR/BR/Michele says hello!BR/~S

    I just use the receipt from the bookstore where I bought the book or the library due date notice. But collecting bookmarks from authors would be cool.BR/BR/Michele sent me.

    You and I are in the same boat! I was needing bookmarks last night. I have a stash, but can’t for the life of me find them. I was stuck using paper. 🙁 That’s my major project for this weekend: find bookmarks!BR/BR/If you don’t mind, I’ll post a request on my blog. See if I can get some sent your way. BR/BR/Never know…

    Oh, I’d love it, J. Kaye! This isn’t about my bookmarks; it’s about getting the names of my friends out there for others to see and hopefully buy.

    Susan, you rock — what a wonderful thing to do! BR/BR/I’d love to send you a bookmark, but the trouble is I no longer have a publisher, and because of that, my little e-published novella no longer has a home. BR/BR/But I’m not overly distressed — I’ve seen it coming. This little e-publisher has been deteriorating for some time. The thing that’s chapping my butt the most is the fact that I’ll have to (only temporarily, I hope) remove the “my book” section from my blog (because the little novella will no longer be available from the going-defunct publisher or from Fictionwise — it’s heading straight to Limbo).BR/BR/But that’s okay. Goodness knows, that particular publisher wasn’t exactly a boon — it was more of a bust. I’m considering different possibilities for the book, and regardless of what happens to that one little novella, I’ve got current projects that are exciting me. :)BR/BR/Thank you so much for reading my short story, my friend — your comment about “Bandit” made my day and made me holler a happy SQUEE! 😀

    What I need, cq, is a book deal and Trevor in people’s hands already. He’ll love the way that feels. BR/BR/But I’ll settle for bookmarks. Bookmarks are happy things. I’ve already got a few here now, in fact, and I’m going to see how many books I can mail out as surprise presents to people now!
