One of my RWU members, Gina Ardito is putting together a gift package to use as a promotional prize at a conference. She asked for ideas. Her upcoming e-book romance, A Little Slice of Heaven, is a romance revolving around an Italian pizza restaurant. We came up with items like olive oil, pizza cutter, a bright red colander and a red-and-white checkered tablecloth along with a CD of her book.
We had loads of fun coming up with ideas, and it prompted me to contemplate what I would include in a gift bag with my books.
For The Space Between, I'd include a shark tooth necklace (I'm getting quite proficient at making them myself), a few artsy things like a paint set and small canvas and brushes. What else? A rubber snake? An inflatable dinghy? Sushi recipes?
For Bad Ice, I'd like to include a hockey puck (with my cover on it), a hockey sweater (with my cover on it), a gift card for The Beer Store (we can't buy beer in a convenience store), and... hm, what else? A smelly jock strap? Just kidding.
If you made a promotional gift basket for your book or future book, what would you put in it?
