The Swag Bag That Never Was

If you have been following me on social media then you might have heard that I have been organizing swag bags for book fairs and book signings. I started doing this early last year in order to give authors something useful, and to connect to other service providers. (And frankly, it has been a lot of fun.)

This year I decided to get serious, I was going to organize the swag bag for a conference, The Career Author Summit. (I want to help run a conference one day, and this seemed like a good way to work my way up.) Alas, that conference has gone virtual, so I will not be handing these bags out to authors in Nashville in May.

I may never have a chance to give away the swag, so I want to take this opportunity to thank my partners. Over a dozen freelancers and companies, including Kobo Writing Life and Bookbaby, had sent me either a flyer or swag. Writer’s Digest even sent me copies of a free issue of their magazine.

My partners include:

Please do check out their sites. I had planned to thank my partners on social media before, during, and after the conference, but this post might be the only thanks I can offer them.

P.S. If you provide services to authors, and would like to participate the next time I organize a swag bag, send me a note.
