Promo Prizes with Pop

With Untouched, the second book in the Amoveo Legend series, coming out in April, promo and blog touring is on the menu for the spring. However, it's not just the book release on the calendar that had me thinking about giveaways because from April 11th-15th I'll be attending the RT Booklover's Convention in Chicago with hundreds of other romance readers and authors. Last year was my fist convention and one thing I noticed were all of the cool promo items that authors and publishers had for the readers.

Needless to say, my marketing mind has been busy coming up with some fun ideas that could stand out in the crowd.

 For the month long book launch contest, I'll be giving out weekly prizes that include signed copies of Unleashed or Untouched and other things like coffee mugs, t-shirts, tote bags, note pads and personalized m&m's...all of which have the book cover on them. Except the m&m's....they were too small so instead I wrote Eagle Clan, Wolf Clan and Amoveo Legend.

There was one idea that I thought would be kind of funky and different--temporary tattoos. I have to admit, I saw a cool one at RT 2011 that author Tamara Hogan had done for her novel Taste Me. (Excellent book by the way!)

So I decided to bite the proverbial bullet and have some made up of the book cover of Untouched and much to my surprise...they came out rather well.

So, what do you think?

Post a comment here on the blog by 11:59 pm on Sunday February 12th and I'll select 3 winners to receive two of these, as well as a couple of bookmarks! Don't forget to post your email so I can contact you.
