Promo prep

I will be at the Romantic Times Book Lovers Conventions May 1st to May 5th. I've been designing cool giveaway items for months.

The ever fabulous Jessica Smith came over to help me with the prep. And here are the pictures!

First, I have handy compact mirrors with my Blood Wings logo. Every vampire needs a mirror to make sure they don't have blood caught in their fangs.
Fang Check.
 If your fangs are not up to your expectations, drop me a line. Maybe you might get one of these for yourself before I head out!
And my promotional image!

This is Jessie. Isn't she a cutie?
After getting the stickers on my mirrors, Jessie, who is a creative force to be reckoned with, suggested I do some some of my hand painted fans for the conference. After all, writers conventions do get warm and many of us are (say it softly) menopausal.

So we took some of my plain white fans and decorated them in the colors of my covers.
Decorating in process.
And finished!
Jessie with my Grand Prize fan.

And here we are with my postcards, fans, and mirrors.

Just a little insight into the things an author does to raise awareness for her books. :)

And various quotes from the day:

"Blood on white is always classy."

"I'll just go upstairs and get a scalpel."

"Wipe off with the sponge, then scrape with the knife."

"I don't know how many times it'll get soggy before it has to dry out."

I hope we scared you but good!
