The Book Magnet Project: Let’s Cover My Fridge

Leave a comment

The other day I put two promotional magnets for two books I have received on my fridge. Why? Because I had them and I’ve always wanted to put stuff on a fridge, but I’ve never had one I could properly call “mine.” Now that I do, I want to cover the blasted thing with promotional magnets for books. That’s where this project comes in.

If you have a book (traditionally published or self-published), are a publisher, or print a magazine/journal/webmag/etc. that either fits into the SF/F genres, is related to them, or at least has elements that might be considered a part of the SF/F genres, then I want your promotional magnets. I only need one, not dozens.

What will I do in return? Well, every magnet I get will involve a free spotlight post on this blog. That means I’ll tell everyone I got your magnet, what the magnet is for, what the book/mag is about, and where to find it. It’s free advertising for having fun!

So, to participate, all you have to do is email me at arconna[at]yahoo[dot]com using the subject line “Book Magnet Project” or something along those lines to tell me about your book and to find out where to send the magnet. I don’t care how you send the magnet, just as long as you send it to me (you can probably send it via standard letter in the U.S., for a measly 42 cents).

And to those that can’t participate (because you don’t have a book or a magnet), then please help me spread the word about this. I want to see how quick we can cover my fridge in magnets!
