As my next book is in the stages of being published, I'm trying to figure out what I can give people who buy my books at book signings. The first two books I gave out handmade book thongs. A Star like a badge on one end and blue beads on the other with a pseudo-leather braided string for Marshal in Petticoats, and a white satin ribbon with an angel on one end and yellow, brown, and gold beads on the other end for Gambling on an Angel.
But I don't want to go with book thongs for "Perfectly Good Nanny". It's a contemporary cowboy story and I want something different. I thought of a 6" ruler with the book cover or just the info on it. (You know for teacher)
What have you as readers and writers seen to promote books that you liked? Or if you were buying a book at a book signing, what would you like to get as a momento?
