Now this is a fun idea!
If you’re planning a book launch, doing a book signing, going to a conference or trade show, this is a novel way to get your book noticed. Print up a pack of playing cards with your book cover on the back of each card.
How can you make this work for you? It’s just interesting enough to get your book some attention.
* You can use a complete pack of playing cards as a prize giveaway to one of the lucky fans who subscribes to your mailing address, blog or newsletter.
* You can hand them out one at a time in place of a business card. After all, it’s the book you want them to remember, right?
* You can either organize a poker run, perhaps with a copy of the book as one of the prizes. Or if you know someone organizing a poker run (snowmobile club poker ride, horseback poker ride, car or bike poker rally, any poker run fundraiser), you can donate both the playing cards and a copy of your book.
* Donate a pack or two to your local seniors center or community center
Have fun with it!
