Romance Trading Cards

I’m sure most of you have heard of Collector Cards or Trading Cards…but recently my friend Jeannie Lin came up with the brilliant idea to create Romance Trading Cards for some of the conferences as a way to promote authors. In the past, I’ve seen NY authors include them at book signing events–however, Jeannie was able to drum up major buzz by pushing this to the mainstream public…er, at least to readers and lovers of romance. She and a few of her friends also formed the Romance Trading Cards website so that collectors can see and order the RTCs from participating authors.

I have wanted to make RTCs for a few years now, but never got around to doing them.  I finally decided this was the right project to practice on. When my shipment arrives, I’ll have a handful of these cards available at the Romance Writer’s of America Conference in NYC this year–looks like a few lucky attendees will get them for free in the goody room. For those unable to attend, I want to focus on adding to the fundraising effort by making them available on my website. Half of the proceeds from the sale of this 3-piece set will go to charity and the rest will help offset the cost for additional promotions.

If you want to collect my trading cards, feel free to order them below. I’ve included US & International prices. There’s also an option to let me know whether you want these cards autographed.

Oh, if you notice, the book cover is the front of the RTCs for each of the 3 cards. You’ll get 1 with the general blurb, 1 character card for the heroine Seren, and 1 character card for the hero Max.
