In This Day And Age ™, building a loyal fanbase is oh-so-important, and authors do their best to keep readers happy and involved. Usually it’s along the lines of offering signed bookplates, asking readers to post banners on websites, that sort of thing. Sometimes it’s…more.
Karin Slaughter, who writes gruesome murder mysteries, had a knitting competition.
You’re thinking Miss Marple, aren’t you.
The knitting items were original designs based around two serial killers. A bag and a hat, so at least they have practical use, but I don’t really want to know what response will follow the inevitable question ‘oh, did you make that yourself?’
I think I’ll stick to raspberry Fun Fur, thanks.
(But Karin Slaughter also sends signed bookplates.)
