Do You Have a Card?

Have you ever attended a writer's workshop, conference, or seminar? While there, did anyone ask, "Do you have a card?"

Well, did you have a sleek business card to hand them? OR, did you scramble for a pen and piece of torn paper to jot your contact info down on? Were you embarrassed?

A few months ago, I attended a writer's seminar. The speaker is the author of numerous how-to books, novels, educational literature, magazine articles, etc.

There was a variety of writers (fiction and nonfiction, children's book authors, romance novel authors, etc.) sprinkled throughout the room.

The author of an unpublished children's book was nicely surprised to meet an artist/illustrator. When that author asked the artist for her card, she had to dig for paper and pen. I could sense she was humiliated. Don't let that happen to you!

It's high time to order your business cards, if you haven't done so already. I try to keep mine with me at all times. Even when I run an errand or stop at the grocery store. You never know who you might run into, even if it isn't an editor or publisher. Perhaps a loyal reader will ask for a business card, so they can purchase your book, or a publication you've recently been published in.

All sorts of professionals have business cards to advertise their specialty. Why not have a card to advertise your freelance writing, ghost writing, copy editing/writing, or to draw attention to your latest novel?
