A Parade of Postcards!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

Earlier this year, the Cozy Chicks sent out postcards to our readers. They were very cute, with the covers of the first books in one of our cozy mystery series.  (And wouldn't you know, I can't find the picture on my hard drive!)

Since we weren't specifically "selling" anything, except to make our readers aware of some of our books, we considered it a nice little informational piece which told readers a bit about us and our blog.  (Did you get one?  Did you like it?)

This was my latest postcard.
Postcards are a great way to get word out about a new book, and several of the Chicks send them out regularly.  (If you aren't already on our list, you can fill out the form on the left side of the blog.  Just give your email address and you go on our newsletter list. When you give your snail address, also go on the postcard list.)

I ran a little survey on Facebook this week asking people if they would like to get my next postcard.  If you'd like to partake, you can fill out this 3-question survey by clicking this link.

Do you enjoy getting author postcards?  Do you collect them?  We'd love to know!

I love the postcards, helps remind me what books are out there and helps me be on the lookout for the new books coming out. At first I had a few and would tack them to my bulletin board, now I must say I have started collecting them and enjoy seeing them in my mailbox. Love getting bookmarks too!!

I love the postcards! I have a very nice collection of them. I received your recent one and it's great. However, even though I'm signed up for the Cozy Chicks list, I didn't get a group one. I checked my profile and my address is correct, so not sure why I didn't get it. I also took your survey. Hope the post cards keep coming.

LOVE getting the postcards! I use them as book marks, and it helps me keep track with what my authors are doing.....

I love getting the postcards! I collect them. I have them in their own little album. I like knowing what is coming out. Thanks for sending them!

I would love to get a postcard! Reading my first Lorna Barrett cozy as we speak--Bookmarked for Death. Enjoying it so far!

I enjoy receiving the post cards. I've made an album and store them in photo protectors, this way I can see the front and back!

I love all kinds of author swag, and collect it all in a big box, which I love to paw through. And I know and understand it is too expensive to ship those postcards abroad.

I too like the postcards and bookmarks. They remind me to get the next book, or that a new book is available. Plus I like the author contact. (But I'd buy your books anyway. some of them in paperback even.)

I collect your postcards, they are so pretty! =)
I have your cozy mysteries on my to be read list.

Love all the postcards and bookmarks, and actually use some, and share the others with friends. Really appreciate the effort! Please keep them (and the books) coming! Thanks.

Karen, have you signed up for my mailing list? If not, I hope you'll consider doing so. (I can't mail you a postcard if I don't have your address!)

I love, love, love your postcards, bookmarks, etc. They're the high point of my day when I get one.
