Wednesday night we picked up my Killer Career bookmarks, which had finally arrived at my brother's house. He's the one with the protected porch.

For some reason, I'd put off ordering them. Then I had the other decision of where I wanted to go. I chose Print Place. After that, I had trouble figuring out how I wanted them to look.

I was kind of nervous, but they turned out just lovely. Thursday I'm off to a few downtown Chicago bookstores to hand out my own bookmarks for a change. Usually I'm dropping off those from my friends.

By the way, that's a good in at a store. If you want to get known, just bring bookmarks from friends when they have a new book and drop them off. The staff then gets to know who you are. Sometimes that's all you need to get a book signing.

What about you? Do you drop off bookmarks for your friends? If not before, will you now?


  1. If I had extra bookmarks, I would drop them off. As it is, I spread fellow writers business cards around when I have them.

  2. Congratulations on being able to drop off your own bookmarks! I haven't dropped off any for friends though I wouldn't mind doing so.

  3. That's a great idea, Morgan. You not only help out friends, you help out yourself.

  5. Hey, I was in Asheville, NC the past two days and yes, I took bookmarks for the bookstores there with me! A stack at the register is great - both for customers to pick up and for employees to drop in bags.

  6. Gosh, I don't know of any friends who have bookmarks for their books, or of course I'd spread them around.

    I create my own bookmarks in small batches using Microsoft Publisher, and most of these have gone to the local public library. Do you think bookstores would accept bookmarks from me even though they aren't carrying my book? (It's self-published, with all the baggage that entails.)

  7. Morgan,
    I'm bringing bookmarks to the next RWA meeting.
