Tchotchkes – tribbles…they’re all cute

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)
