I shudder at the thought. Why you ask? Because your business card is an extension of you. How am I trying to market myself? Not to mention the fact that I have to decide WHAT should be on it.
Believe it or not, as an author your business card should include the following which I have placed into three categories for your reading pleasure:
- Phone Number
The Not so Obvious
- Book Blurb
- Twitter/Facebook address
The Really are you sure?
- My picture
AND you are supposed to leave space for people to take notes as well. Should I also hand out a magnifying glass with each card? I mean, the font is going to need to be -6 for all of this to fit!
Next you have to choose the style. What am I trying to convey with my card? Do I want edgy? As in kick-ass paranormal writer? Do I want simple? As in I have no stinking room on this teeny-tiny card for any type of graphics?
So I have come up with a design and now I’ll marinate on it. Why you ask? (actually you have been asking why a lot in this blog). Because what looks great to me today may not look as smashing tomorrow. So I will wait 24 hours and then push ‘buy’.
