Okay, logically I knew when I decided to go to Romantic Times ’08 convention, I was going to have to plan on some promo.
I needed to think up some cool idea for a give-aways, and I needed to think of some clever ideas to give the booksellers.
I suck at thinking of these things. I don’t want to do bookmarks or notepads or stuff that doesn’t last. But…well, I can’t call me frugal, I’m not, but I hate plunking out huge sums of money for promo items. I’d rather buy books. Or buy a GC for a contest. Or a couple of nifty PC programs that I just know will come in handy for something. I just don’t know what yet.
So why didn’t I think about how much I hate messing with promo before now?
Spent the weekend going blind on the internet trying to think of the perfect thing. I never thought of the perfect little gift, but I did finally find a cute couple of somethings for the two separate parties I’m hosting, along with several other authors.
Me. Hosting something. Whodathunkit?
