My Dear Future Readers,
Yes, today I will talk about “swag.” I wanted to talk about it for a while now but I didn’t know how. But now, I know how.
Swag is bookmarks, postcards, rack cards, banners, mugs and other such things that have an author’s logo on it.
Now that you know what “swag” is, let’s talk more about it. Okay, so, I am a new author which means that I have no idea at all how to create my own promotional author things. But, that does not mean that I can’t try.
Yes, I want my readers to have more than just books. I decided if I’m going to do this publication right and be a success I need some things to giveaway. I did a little research and I found a website that I could use. This is EXCITING for you too. I will be making some things for you. I don’t know what I’ll make yet but this is a very interesting idea that I’m planning on using. I will be using a website called Vista Print.
Soon, I plan on getting some things from it. I love you all so much. I really do. I believe that “swag” is a personal mark of the author who is communicating with their reader on a deeper level. That is what I want. I want to find new ways to let my readers know how much I appreciate them for staying with me. This is not an easy road but I don’t plan to stop.
I haven’t ordered anything from them yet but I do plan on it. I have been seriously considering ordering postcards, bookmarks and pens, maybe even sticky notes. Yes, that website has a lot of things. They are all so attractive to me. Especially when I customized them.
I want them ALL. But I can’t have everything. So, I’ll have to choose. It is so hard to choose. One of these days when I’m not overwhelmed by life, I will buy some swag. I don’t want to be the only author who doesn’t have things to giveaway. That would truly be embarrassing.
Still, I am still getting used to the fact that my book is actually published. Yes, I finally did it and made my dream come true. Now, I need to get on that site and really start ordering. There might be a few things that I want to do with it like book signings.
Plus, I want to still do an online release party for my readers (maybe it’s not too late) I have been postponing it for a while but a celebration is in order. In fact it is long overdue. It’s almost a month since the book was published. Oh my goodness!!! I did not realize it until now.
A party is definitely in order. I need to order that swag. My goodness, there’s so much to do. I can’t believe it’s almost a one month anniversary!!!!
I’ll let you know about that site when I actually order. So far, they have a lot of sales, that’s all I know.
Look for: Received Swag, sometime this month.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
