I can already see your funny little face squished up in confusion. Tchotchkes? What the heck are tchotchkes?
In a nutshell, they’re digital goodies that publishers put together for their book releases. These little goodies can be website banners, magnets, bookmarks, postcards…even posters! Oooo, I would LOVE a poster.
I’ve had a chance to view the ones for the Make Believe Anthology and let me tell you, they are b-e-a-utiful!!!!! Sorry…can’t show them to you yet. Top secret stuff and all. But you’ll get to see them soon, I promise, and I can assure you, they will be well worth the wait.
I wish I had money because I can think of some wonderful advertising. How cool would it be to make a banner that streams out behind those airplanes that advertise over the beach? Or maybe a bus stop bench advertisement? Whoa! Hold the presses. We could go billboard size! That would rock! (I’m not a little excited over this anthology am I?)
Oh, it’s nice to dream. One day, I’ll be a famous author and I’ll be able to do stuff like this. Until then, I’ll just stare at my little digital tchotchkes, smile, and know how lucky I am to be published. It’s a wonderful feeling.
Now get going, shoo. You have writing and publishing to do so you can get your own tchotchkes to stare at. I promise, they’re cuter than tribbles and won’t take over your starship. 🙂
(sorry about the advertising, but it’s too cute not to post)
