Back-to-Business Monday: BOOKMARKS

I'm in a total quandary.  Or maybe a frenzy.  Or maybe a frendary...?  Here's why:

April 13 will be the 6-months-to-pub-date for Audition.  April 16-17 are the dates of SCBWI Western Washington annual's (and awesome) conference.  I've got a cover and jpegs of the front and back of the arc from the book designer.

I should make bookmarks.  But...

Should I wait to hear back about a blurb from an amazing author?  Should I order SOME bookmarks now and wait to print the rest (at higher cost) until I hear back.  Should I be okay with no bookmarks for SCBWI-WWa (I think not)?  How close can I cut this?

Clearly, this is not an informative post so much as a digressive panic.  You ever have those?

Go ahead and make some now, but a low number--then you can add more later. You'll go through bookmarks quickly, I'm sure!

Oh to be in your shoes--congrats, you!

Beth's advice is exactly what I would have said. You do want to have something to take with you and hand out in the interim, right?

I was hoping to make it to the WWa conference, but unfortunately it conflict with a preplanned family vacation. Have fun, and enjoy the moment--you've earned it!

I don't think you should miss any opportunity to publicize your work, so printing some would be a good idea.

Thanks, Beth, Angela & J.L., for the advice. Sorry you won't be at WWa, Angela, but have a great vacation!

I agree with what everyone else said: print some now, then more later. So exciting, Stasia!!
