Here is why:
- If someone expresses interest in your books, there’s nothing like a business card to give them a chance to check it out later, in the comfort of their homes
- If you are selling books at an event (a fair, a conference, a market, a signing) some readers will know you and will have waited months to come buy your signed books, but some will meet you for the first time. Never make someone feel like they HAVE to buy your book. What if it sucks? What if it’s not for them? Have cards available. If they like it, they can go home later and check synopsis, reviews, genre and make their decision independently :)
- Business cards are a from of free advertisement. If they are pretty people hang on to them, show them off, share them, hang them around their space.
So, how do you make the perfect business card?
The formula is very simple. Book cover on the front, social media and contacts in the back.
Every time I publish a new book I add a new business card to my collection with the new cover and you know what? So far people COLLECT them, I had them choose between card 1 and 2 and they ALWAYS took both. They will keep them, they might share them, they will check out my books.

It’s #readselfpublished month!
Book 1 was published on November 1st and already has 20 reviews on Amazon (4.6 stars!). Book 2 was released on January 30, and book 3 will be released on May 1st.
Help me out! Spread the word, if you read the books, write a review, lend them out, blog about them. I will be forever grateful <3
Why should you read the #TIS books?
The series takes place in Italy and follows the adventures of Leda, a kickass tomboy and a bookworm. The books have been described as “hysterical and incredibly insightful, feelings oozing from the pages”.
Book 1 is a book about growing up in Italy, friendship, family, dealing with splitting parents, bullies, an obnoxious older sibling and school.
Book 2 is a book about first crushes, first kisses, friendship, and summer in Italy.
Book 3 is about teenage angst, loneliness, cutting, anger and suicide, but it’s also a breath taking romance (I hate cheesy love stories where everything s perfect, my characters tend to have a bit more issues...uh, like me ;P)
Book 4 (will be released hopefully in the fall) is about sex, not in the trashy or erotica sense. It sure is steamy, but it talks about the experience of going through the first time, physically and emotionally. When are you ready? What do you feel? What are you supposed to feel? I am so sick of our hypocritical society where nobody speaks openly about sex yet pornography is everywhere. There is more to sex than the mere act. So, this book is candid and explicit. Certainly hot, but mostly honest <3
So, if you love strong female characters, if you love bookworms, if you feel lonely and misunderstood, if you like stories with humor and heart, if you want to learn about Italy, if you love feelings all around (not just romance), if you are tired of hypocrisy and clichés check my books out <3
Please, help me out! Check out the books here (e-book, paperback, and audio!) leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, and Audible, and spread the word <3 Even if the books are not your thing, please reblog so that I can find my readers ^_^
Thank you so much,
