|Canadian Children's Book Choice & Silver Birch Nominee Stickers|
the magic of the humble sticker!
Why do I love the way these stickers look on my books?
They're adorable, and make people want to pick my books up, so those are two good reasons to love them, I guess.
But there is something very magical about these stickers, they bestow some kind of weird authority, some instant validity, that my presence alone does not.
I've seen it again and again: people see the stickers on the books while I'm at a reading or signing or book fair, make a little exclamation something along the lines of "OH! Canadian Children's Book Centre!" or "WOW! A Silver Birch? That's BIG," which is of course great, then they want to know more about the books and make a purchase.
It's amazing. Who knew that the humble sticker was the way to go when selling your books to the public? Best $8.99 I've ever spent! They're just stickers. But I love them.
