Eye Catching Brochures and Pamphlets
Christine McKay's promotional booklet takes the term "bodice ripper" to a whole new level! For this brochure, Ms. McKay combined a dark coral colored, cardstock paper with a corset graphic. She then used a hole punch and black ribbon to tie the brochure closed.

|Fliers, stapled to the cover, promoted her current and back list of books complete with ISBN numbers and review quotes.|
- It's unique design helped it stand out from the other materials on the table at the Chicago RT Booklovers Convention.
- The concept is easy to execute on your home PC or Mac.
- The ribbon added a nice tactile experience - it made you feel like you were unwrapping a gift!
- The content, though abundant, was concise and provided a visual for readers to look for when seeking to purchase her books.
- The only thing I would have changed: the books being promoted on her website should have been the first flier in the center content....They were included later in the stack.
- Overall, it is a well executed marketing piece!
Questions to ponder this week:
- Does your story have a totem, symbol, artifact, or other item that you can use to creatively market your books?
- How can you put your own twist on a pamphlet or flier to catch the eye of your readers?
Don't be afraid to be different....you just might attract new readers!
