I’ve had two different author business cards over the last few years and haven’t been happy with either of them.
I didn’t like the cover image for book one of The Great Scottish Land Grab on the first one and replaced it with the cover I had designed for the full novel.
The second business card looked great, but the text on the back was confusing and didn’t tell people how to buy the book.
This is my current draft, Front:
Thanks to Mark at http://covervault.com/ for the template I used for the book mock ups!
I’d appreciate any feedback on the designs.
[Update] After just a couple of discussions I’m now wondering if I’m trying to do too much with this card. A business card is normally used to share contact details, but I hope/intend to use this as a marketing/advertising tool, to give out to people I meet who may be interested in reading my novels, not getting in contact…
So, should I include an email address, a phone number even? Or just focus on where people can buy the books?
