Trading Covers

A long long time ago, a brilliant friend of mine had this idea.
She said, you know, with ebooks all you're really missing is the pretty cover to hold, sign, etc.
Why not make little collectible cards of all your books?

Now, I mentioned she was brilliant, but she's also generous and didn't mind for a second that I stole the idea and ran with it. (I did ask permission first) So, I've had the trading cards printed, and I've taken them to a convention and they seemed to go over pretty well.
It was a great idea.

And like all great ideas, eventually, someone else has the same great idea.
Today, I saw this link: http://romancetradingcards.com
and I had to text and break the bad news to her.

Still, in celebration of HER great idea. :-) I still have my cards. You can find them at any convention I appear at, or go here: http://francespauli.com/tradingcards.htm
and read how to get yours for free.

And a round of applause for clever friends everywhere.
