I can't even tell you all how busy it's been for me these last few months. Everyone thinks I'm crazy for being on top of my game so early (GATEWAY releases August 25th), but I'm pretty much OCD and my mind won't allow me to relax for ten seconds without thinking of everything I need to do.
To start, I already have all my blog tour posts set up with bloggers and soon we'll have material to post. Kind of crazy, but I knew that come August, I'm gonna be insanely busy trying to get each post ready. So I thought I'd prep myself by knowing what to expect.
The most important thing I've focused on is swag. A lot of people have asked me where I got my buttons and such. I thought I'd use this post to share. And what I can tell you is this: It's never too early to purchase swag. There have been too many times when someone has asked me about my book and I had nothing to show or give them. I decided to follow in Kristin Bailey's footsteps and order some postcards. She suggested Uprinting.com and they were fantastic! AND… fast! I got these postcards within a week.
I also got these cute little buttons from purebuttons.com. They were recommended to me by the awesome Jenny K! Pure Buttons is another company that was cost efficient and super quick. I love these little guys and they seem to be pretty popular with people, too. I can't wait to share them at my school visit this month!
