Here's a great idea from fellow SCBWI WWA member Jenn Chushcoff. She noticed fellow members with books coming out are having book "birthday" parties. When her book came out last year she had book "birth" announcements printed, complete with name, date, weight and size. It was fun and a great conversation starter. A great idea from Jenn for fellow author/Illustrators who are looking for unique promotional ideas.
Thanks for the great idea Jenn! I'd love to hear from other members who have book "birthday" ideas and/or promotional ideas to share with our members!
You can find out more about Jenn, and her work, on her website.
