Yes, you read that right. There will be an Araneae color collection!
I love nail polish. I’m a total addict. To spread my love, I commissioned the fabulous Pam at Paint Box Polish to design five colors around the five heroines from the Araneae series.
This is the first to be revealed. It’s a holo topcoat (shown over a black base in this picture for contrast).
The color is No More Shady Kaidi, named after Kaidi, who you’ll meet in A Time of Dying. ;D
Well, what do we think? Good idea for swag? I’m hoping to debut the set at my upcoming reader’s luncheon in August. Nothing like a little face-to-face feedback from readers. :)
I have plans for two other out-of-the-box swag ideas, but those have to wait until closer to the event to be revealed. I still need two or three other little things to round out my gift bags. I'm trying to pick items readers haven't seen before or are customized in such a way that the reader is left with an OMG-gotta-read-it impression of the Araneae series.
I'll admit the covers do most of the work for me, but I still like to nudge them along. *fingers crossed* Readers will enjoy the new ideas.
For readers, what are your favorite swag items to receive? For authors, what new items have you tried and loved? I'm always open to recommendations.
