So you’re a wannabe novelist at a big convention in hopes of making good connections and even better first impressions. You’ve never published, or if you have, it’s been on a small, not-really-important scale.
So you talk to some agents, editors, authors, fellow wannabes. Do you give them a business card?
What are your thoughts on business cards? Is it kosher to have a business card as a writer when you’ve never been published? Or to have a business card with your information, but not an actual business? Or do you give out your actual business card, regardless of whether you work for Novell or Canyon Catering? What’s the etiquette here?
Thoughts muchly appreciated. Savvy?
Excerpt of the day:
She peered up into the bright morning sky, speckled with two, feather-like clouds. “How did you get me down?”
Thade smiled, but didn’t answer. Either he didn’t know how to sign the words, or he chose not to explain it to her. Teague suspected the second.
Weirs, chapter 7
