That’s Why They Call Them Business … Cards

Because it’s business time!

I declared to my fellow writing group member David Boop that I’m ready to “CON IT UP, BABY!” (I may have left out the baby, I can’t be sure.) He was very excited about this news, since he’s been trying to get me and the other aspiring YA author in the group, the fabulous Amanda, to start networking. He said I needed to be sure I had some business cards.

I have an awesome friend who sent me a template. I’ve been playing around with layouts. At first, I was thinking having my title line list my genres, so “young adult | urban fantasy” but Dave mentioned that I should add little one-liners about my WIPs on the back of my card. So, then I was thinking of just putting “young adult author” on the front, and the back would explain what genres I’m currently working on. That way, if my next WIP is a paranormal romance (which is just may or may not be…), I don’t have to print up new cards. I’m currently leaning towards the second option.

SO! What say ye, tomodachi?

Behind Curtain One!

OR

Curtain Number Dos!

I absolutely love how the cards are relatively simple yet still visually catching and, of course, PINK CHEVRON!

I write speculative fiction inspired by mythos from around the world, complex family dynamics, and my own experiences living with mental illness. After earning my BA in Linguistics from Brigham Young University in 2008, I received my MFA in Creative Writing from Converse College in 2012. I live in Denver, where my husband and I spend countless hours chasing our three young sons (and sometimes catching them!). I collect tarot decks, dye my hair mermaid colors, and procrastinate by decorating my home. My debut novel, Feathers Sharp as Knives, releases on May 2, 2023.

    1. Yeah, I like the idea of not having to print out new cards with every new WIP. I’d include the genre on the front, but if I include brief info blurbs about my books on the back, that’s the same thing. (In my mind, at least.)
