The Perfect Purse for Author Events
Yes I know we usually get a tote from the writing conference or author event, but they are bulky and if you fill them with your personal crap they become cumbersome. Plus they are to be used to collect swag and free books!
Admission, I am a purse
watcher stalker lover. The first thing I notice about someone is the type of purse they are carrying. I have a fetish and I admit it. Catching a glimpse of a unique Coach, a Louie or an unusual purse at a conference makes my day. However, for practicality, this is the purse I recommend. (Click on Pictures to enlarge)
Okay, Okay – It’s not a purse, it’s a small tote (13″x8 1/2″)but stay with me here and I’ll tell you why it works. (This specific one is available through Initially Yours, Inc $30, but you can find the style at other places)
Why it works…
First, note the embroidery (name recognition)
And – LOTS OF POCKETS!!!
What to put in it? 2 Clear bags (ziploc bags work) Yes I know a second

Bag #1 – Giveaways (pens, lip balms), postcards, other small swag stuff (about 5 of each) you can refill them as you go from your rolling tote
Bag #2 – Personal Items like Lip balm, compact mirror, eye drops, nail file, bandaid, small comb or brush, headache or allergy pills
Item #3 – Cards. A bag or plastic container with a stack of business cards (List your author name, book series or title of your book, web/blog address and email) Don’t put your home address or phone nbr on these.
