A successful book promotion is in the cards for you!

Now this is a fun idea!

playing cards


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!

Promote your books!

You’ve published a book!  It’s not easy to write a book, but you set your mind to it and got it done. Congratulations, and best wishes for your success!

Unfortunately, for most new writers, getting a book in print  – or published in a digital edition –  is just the first step. Now you have to tell the world about it. Where do you start? Maybe you’ve sent out a press release and got an announcement in your local paper. You’re promoting it on Facebook and Twitter, and starting to get reviews.

You can also be creative with other types of promotion. How about business cards to hand out? How about a fun t-shirt sporting a full-color cover of your new book? How about postcards or sell-sheets to send out to bookstores and libraries? How about a coffee mug with your book cover on it for a giveaway?


These ideas and more are now easy to make for yourself by visiting the new Show Off Your Books! store.  Check out the promotional ideas, customize them with your own book covers and information, and give them a try.
