The Bookmark Project

You might have seen my tweet yesterday about the fact I just received two boxes of shiny new bookmarks. I'm very excited that I'll have these available at future cons and events, but I haven't quite run out of my last run of bookmarks yet, and there is only so much room in my luggage and on tables, so I need to reduce my stock. With that in mind, I'm looking for some minions volunteers who would be willing to see that the old bookmarks make it to bookstores where they can find a new home. 

Okay, let's  talk about what is actually involved in this "bookmark project."

What I'm proposing is that if you're interested in helping me get the word out about the books (and helping some bookmarks find good homes) send an email to kalayna(AT)kalayna(dot)com with the words "BOOKMARK PROJECT" in the subject line and include your name, shipping address, and the name of the bookstore you plan to take the bookmarks to. I will then send you 20-30 bookmarks that you can take to the bookstore and either ask the manager to put on the checkout desk for customers to claim, or you can take the bookmarks back to the fantasy section and place them inside other urban fantasy titles so that the reader who buys that book will have a free bookmark and learn about my series. I will also send you your very own minion button (everyone wants one of those, right? Or is that just me?) and I'll send you one of my brand new signed bookplates that you can put in your book.

Anyone interested?

Hi Jennzah. That's a good question. I think right now I'm going to stick to the US and Canada because I'll have something special for overseas soon (I have a big announcement to make ^_^ )

Thanks Mardel!

I would have loved to be your minion and help with the project, but alas I live in Germany... Such a shame!
