I just got back from the Authors After Dark conference (loved it!) and was amazed and awed by some of the amazing “swag” (i.e., giveaways) that some of the authors brought.
Then I was chatting with awesome author and friend Mari Mancusi about a fabulous deal that her publisher has going on right now for her new book (hurry!! it only lasts until September 2!! Follow the link for details of how to participate).
I just think that’s such a clever campaign! Don’t miss out!
There are other book related giveaway things that are fun, too. I took fabulous door hangers to AAD that say “Shhhh … I’m with Damien Stark” with me to the AAD conference. Lots of fun! But I saw all sorts of cool swag there like coozies and notebooks and journals and buttons and bumper stickers and mugs and t-shirts and on and on … and that got me thinking.
So my question to you readers is — what do you like/want? Do you love bookmarks? USB drives with sample books? Coasters? Postcards? Nail files? I’m about to do a massive “swag restock” and would love to know what you like!
