I now have a lovely new logo! They always say authors these days need a brand. Because I write in a variety of genres, I couldn’t make mine genre specific. So I went with my favorite color + something that simply shows I’m a writer.

The thought is, instead of having to make all-new marketing stuff for every new book (though I still will in some circumstances), I can also have all-purpose items that are just, well, me.

For now I’ve put the logo on the sidebar, and I will have to decide how else to use it. I don’t need new business cards yet, but I’ll be at the Bay Area Book Fest in June and I’ll surely want to hand out some goodies. We’ll see what I come up with. Stay tuned!

4 Thoughts on “Logo

  1. Purple. Yes! *high five* Awesome. I think branding is one of the trickiest parts of the buiz.

  2. Very cool. Did you design it yourself or work with somebody?

    I really like the ‘from words to world’ too-.

    • I used Vistaprint, which was very reasonable in terms of cost. The tagline is one I came up with myself. I told them what color(s) I wanted and filled out a survey for them to get a sense of who I am and how I would be using the logo. They then came up with three designs and I selected and refined this one. I’m pretty chuffed!

  3. It looks fantastic!
