"I'm a firm believer that the more pieces of paper your name is on, the better you'll succeed in publishing. Because of this, I do a lot of mass mailing, and pass out a ridiculous number of coasters and business cards. Each of these lists my website URL. You should put your URL on everything. Mine is on the bumper of my car, and every ad and flier, and even on my checks. Every piece of mail I send out gets my web address rubber stamp on the back. I always mention my URL in newspaper and radio interviews, on panels, and while doing signings. Overkill? I get 1,000 unique hits a day, and I'm a midlist genre writer"J.A.Konrath
