BOOK PROMOTIONS & I ARE A WRITER! MUGS


As part of my never-ending quest for world domination increased book sales, I'm proud to announce:

 
The FUR-FACE eBook on a CD/I are a writer! mug promotion

Delivered anywhere in the USA for $12.95 (incl tax and P&P)
 
I'm selling signed copies of the Fur-Face eBook-on-a-CD and I are a writer! mug together at personal appearances and events like next month's PhilCon for
$6 (incl tax).  People seem to like the idea, so I'm making the promotion available online too. 

It took a lot longer to figure out than I thought, but after six hours, I finally managed to organize a webpage for the promotion on my website. 

There's a one-size-fits-all price for deliveries in the US ($12.95), but if you live outside the states, I'd be happy to sort something out.
 
If you visit the page and have any helpful suggestions or spot any mistakes, I'd appreciate you letting me know.


In other Fur-Face news, the Win-A-Kindle contest is still going strong, and the Nook version of Fur-Face is at last available for download at Barnes & Noble's website. 

I'm always interested in book-promotion methods, whether it's to help sales by doing multi-author signings like the ones organized through The New Jersey Authors Network, or some clever idea made up by individual authors. 

How about you?

What book promotions have caught your eye in the past?

I really should pay attention to that sort of thing.

Of course, Abbie Hoffmann's book,
Steal This Book!
was pretty much self-promoting.
Sadly, the sequel,
Leave This Book on the Shelf
didn't do as well.

That's great!! Woohoo!

YOUR promos catch my eye most. You're the king. And I'm taking notes!

I wish. Peadar tells me you're giving away a free caribbean cruise with every copy of Finder. I could never top that ;)

Oh, that Peadar. How he warps things. I'm giving away a Bermuda cruise with every copy, not Caribbean. Yeesh!

But only if the applicant is over 95 years old, and attends your first three booksignings, accompanied by both sets of his/her grandparents, right? :)

Is that what he said? My, he DOES twist things! The applicant only has to be 75 years old, and must be accompanied by both their parents. And they don't have to attend three book signings. Goodness, that's all I have planned at the moment! I only require two.

That seems much more reasonable :)

I wrote you a message through livejournal... I wanted to ask you a question about your publisher. I'm not sure if you recieved it, so please let me know if you didn't. It is nice to see you working so hard to keep your adoring fan base happy!!

Hi Stephanie,

Sorry for the delayed response. I just sent you a separate email. I've contacted my editor at Echelon Press and asked if she'll help you out. If not, I know someone else who might.

if you don't mind-
I am tweeting this. I want that mug! And I agree, you are the king of book promotions. I haven't really paid attention to such in the past; I just bought and/or ordered books if they were well reviewed, by authors I loved, or seemed interesting to me.

Had a quick question about you signing the cds - do you use the special cd markers? They are pretty cheap and come in various colors, too. It's my understanding that normal markers will eventually (someday) bleed into the cd and damage it...?

The CD has a stick-on label, which I sign with a Sharpie, so there's no problem there. CDs are pretty resilient, though I wouldn't sign it with anything like a ball-point pen.

I'd save a copy to my external drive anyway and keep the cd in my storage case. For some reason I'm obsessive about that - have to always have 2 copies just in case one is lost!

I do that with my backup CDs. Better safe than sorry, right?
