I picked up a few marketing items the other day.
Ordered myself a couple of stress balls that are really more of rounded-off stress cubes featuring the cover of my book, “Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher,” on one face.
Also got some bottle openers emblazoned with my website, http://www.PaulHoffmanAuthor.com.
And finally, some can/bottle cooler-like cozies with the book cover and my website printed on them.
I haven’t figured out what all I’m going to do with them yet. I might offer them for sale, might do some giveaways. I’ve only ordered a few of each right now. I’ll probably get more later.
Earlier, I got myself a mouse pad and T-shirt with the book cover on them. Those were for my own use, although I could certainly order more. I also gave my mom a coffee mug with the book cover on it.
It’s pretty neat all the cool stuff you can get.
If you were me, what would you do with them? Post a message here, go to my Facebook author page and post a note there or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
