You know when you go to an author event and you get some cool swag like a sticker, nail polish or a bookmark? Sometimes those are made by the publisher...but generally the authors get those things done themselves as a thank you to fans. With the first book I was able to make shirts and totes to give away at readings. I can without bias say they were really freaking cool shirts because I did not design them.
Well, with the release of Necromancing the Stone, we'd like to do it again...only I can't do it on my own. I need help from you guys. Besides I figure this way I can know if there really is a desire for my book swag. If not, no harm done and we can go our separate ways. We can still friends. Really. I won't sob uncontrollably in the shower or anything. Well, at least no more than usual.
The stickers will include the paperback cover design of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer and Necromancing the Stone as well as a few other things we're making up. The shirt/tote designs will be creations inspired by the book. They will once again be made by the fabulous team at Imaginary Trends. I will once again hug them and make dignified "squee" noises. The shirts will come in the standard S,M,L and XL sizes. If possible, I will let you choose the design we send you.
All right team, let's see if we can make this happen.
Either way, you guys are the best.
