Business Cards…

(Or how I got my techno-groove on)

I have an opportunity to meet with someone about my new young adult mystery, Double Take. While thinking about what I would say, it suddenly occurred to me that I didn’t have a business card. Yikes.

So I started designing one. While looking up ideas of what others had done, I ran across a cool QR code creator called QR Code Monkey

I designed the front of the card to match my more playful side and the back to satisfy that part of me that loves to geek out. With a regular QR reader app, you can hover over the left side and *bing* you are transported to my Amazon author page. Hover over the right side, *bing* you’re looking at our Pyrofuse website.

A good Epson printer, medium weight linen paper, and a good cutter did the rest. I now have my first author business cards.

Let me know what you think or if you have suggestions. Would appreciate the feedback.

Promote or Produce?

I’ve had four writing projects stalled for the last few months.  The first project, my YA mystery “Double Take” has been published. (Let the blowing of celebratory horns begin!)

Now I need let people out in the readerverse know that it exists and I think it’s rather lovely.  But I have these naggy other projects that want to see the light of day.

So, you lovely people of the internet, do I spend my time promoting my book (which you can find on amazon ) or get the other projects done?  50/50? 25 promotion 75 projects?

What would you suggest?

What have you been up to?

Self and book “Double Take”

I’ve taken quite a break from my blog…

Not sorry…

I’ve been making one of my dreams come true.  I wrote a book; a real gosh-darn YA mystery.   It’s about a these two fresh and eager first year students at a local community college.  They’re twins! One is Deaf and the other one is hearing.  There’s a event at the college and these two step up to solve the mystery surrounding the event (no spoilers here).

Some “behind the book” information:  Writing was a lot of fun and very challenging.  However, there was a steep learning curve when it came to cover design and learning how to format a book so I could release the paperback and ebook at the same time.

My author page links to both styles of books.  A neat kindle feature, there is a “look inside” feature for the electronic book if you want to read the first few pages before buying.  Bobbi Bowman Author Page
