I spoke at the Book Publicists of Southern California meeting last month. There are usually 50 to 100 people at these meetings. What a shame if I let that kind of opportunity pass by just speaking and then saying "See you all later." Of course! Business cards! They will appear magically near each attendee's dinner plate. And yes, they have my book cover, an endorsement from Dan Poynter, and a USA Book News award-winner logo on them. And essential ordering information, of course.
(By the way, there is a list of my appearances--most of them free--in my Sharing with Writers newsletter. Anyone who would like to sign up need only send me an e-mail with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line and I'll do it for them.)
