Post #26 – Book Week Costumes from your readers

Invite your readers to send you photos of their costumes

Welcome to the blog post prompt for this week. If you’re blogging along this week, or coming back another time to join in, please add your link in the comments so we can check out your blog too. If you add a link, please visit one or two of the other links and add a comment.

In Australia, Book Week happens in August and it’s an event that is celebrated in most schools. For children’s authors, book week is a great way to promote their books.

One great way to generate content for your blog or website is to invite your fans to send you photographs of their book week costumes that feature your characters. You can even turn it in to a competition by giving away a signed copy of your latest book or some merchandise that is related to your books, such as a t-shirt or library bag.

On your blog or website, highlight a selection of the best or most interesting costumes that have been submitted to you. Depending on the number of entries, you may not have room to feature them all, however you should acknowledge as many of them as possible. You could even send all the entries a post card to thank them for their efforts.

You could even ask some of the parents to submit a guest post with information about how they created the costumes. This can also be a promotion opportunity for some of your fans as you could link to their websites or blogs. If you go down this route, be sure to be clear about what you want on your blog.

If you are using this prompt on your blog, add your link in the comments. I look forward to seeing your readers and their costumes.
