We had a great response to last Wednesday’s post featuring the talented graphic artist Sharlene Martin Moore. Sharlene creates gorgeous online “postcards” for authors to use to promote their books, contests, book signings etc… She designs postcards for some of the biggest names in the biz including Eloisa James and Susan Elizabeth Phillips. We heard from several authors who are going to contact Sharlene to get some postcards made – which is awesome! A few of you already have! David Lee Summers got in touch with Sharlene and ordered a postcard for his dark vampire novel Dragon’s Fall: Rise of the Scarlet Order. Sharlene came up with two killer designs.
And some of you have been inspired to create your own postcards as well. Alexis D. Craig created a hot and sexy postcard for her romantic suspense Give Me Shelter. And guess what? Alexis has been getting great buzz on social media. Here’s the postcard Alexis created:
As you can see, postcards are a great way to engage with fans and readers. And people love to reblog them! Think of them as movie billboards – the kind you see when you’re driving. You really take notice and you want to find out more. That’s what these online postcards do. That’s the impact they have.
Make a statement with your books – both new releases and older titles will benefit from online postcards.
Until next week – keep promoting! 🙂
