Just a quick tip here directly from my SharingwithWriters newsletter available (with a freebie) from http://howtodoitfrugally.com :
 
Novelist Randall Platt has used doorknob hangars to publicize her books. They are adorable and could be used by advertising companies that send people door to door to hang things on people's doorknobs. But they could also be used as giveaways at book fairs, etc. I like that they have more room on them for chattiness, author's pictures, book covers, etc., than bookmarks. The headline Randall uses on hers is "Do Not Disturb! I'm reading Randall Platt's New Novel!" Learn more about Randall at http://plattbooks.com.
