I wanted you to know that not only do I read your comments, but I also take them under advisement. So when many of you said, “get a bookmark”, I…well. You can read all about it if you check out my post on The Muffin today.
Or if you’re time-crunched, you can just take a peek at this:
And the back side:
great postcards. And I love the new blog theme. I especially love the little worm. Very cute.
I love that worm, too, Sally. To tell the truth, it was really all about the worm. 🙂
What a great idea, Cathy! Especially for those anthologies. Must put my thinking cap on…
Thanks, Gail! I like having that space on the back of the card, too. Plenty of room to take a note or two! 🙂
Cute! 🙂 Could you make them into a magnet somehow – like fit all the info on the front? Then people could put them on refrigerators and file cabinets etc.
I could make them into magnets, Madeline! I got a really good deal on these–I’ll see how the sales go before I invest in anything else. (You got to make money to spend money, right?) 🙂
Thanks, Trisha! Someday I’ll have a book of my very own and it’ll get its own bookmark. But I love writing (and selling!) stories to anthologies, so an all-purpose bookmark seemed like a good idea. 🙂
Cathy: Do you write your latest release with a sharpie on the cards? Just wondering what you are planning to do? What company did you use?
Yes, Margo, the Sharpie pen works great! I’m hoping that my actual latest release will be here in time for this event but if not, I’ll pull out my previously-released books and give folks a choice (and write the latest release on the card)
I went with Vistaprint because they had A. a quick turnaround (and I needed them FAST!) and B. easy to use template. Also, I do my business cards through Vistaprint so I often have special deals. I ended up getting 100 postcards for a great price. (I checked three or four companies and the shipping was more than the bookmarks!)
Love the blog and love the bookmarks and how nicely they tie in to the writing theme and your blog’s new look! Can’t wait to see how the Fall Festival goes!
Thanks, Debra! As for the festival…you and me both, girl. 🙂
Just popped over from Muffin to check out your cards– very cute! And after cruising around your blog, I want to hang out here more so will sign up to follow. 🙂
Nice to see you, Julie! Thanks–and thanks for signing up. Hope to see more of you!
Love this! And you stuck with the fishy theme, which is memorable AND adorable. Kinda like you. 🙂
Aw, now you’re making me blush, Lisa–and that’s not easy. 🙂
Cathy–Very cute postcard! Thanks for giving us a sneak peek…
You’re welcome, Sioux! Hope someday to give you one in person! 😉
Turtles! Aaaahhhhh! The only thing that could have made this any better was a little cartoon Julie Andrews holding a fishing pole :D. CUTE!!!!
Don’t think I didn’t look for that, Kara. 😉
How cute and clever, Cathy. Whew! That’s a lot of the letter c in that sentence. Hope you hook a lot of readers.
