Book Memento

So, have I gushed about how amazing and successful the writers in my YA Book Club are?

Yeah, I know I have, so just bear with me.

With all of their books coming out, I am totally living vicariously through them.

I wanted to make some kind of mementos to help celebrate their books. And since I just happen to have a hand-stamped jewelry business I can write whatever I want on my jewelry pieces.


So, I decided to make key chains with their book names on them.


Chelsea Swiggett's book, RAE came out in August. Here she is at her book signing:
It's part of the Louder Than Words series, and it's about her experience as a teen living with Anxiety Disorder. AMAZING! SO proud of her!

*******

Leah Clifford's book, A TOUCH MORTAL comes out this February (and I am currently Reading an ARC of it--LOVE)!
Here's the tag line: She's been BETRAYED... by life, by death, and by love.

*********

Anyway, here are the key chains I made for Chelsea and Leah. I hammered the sterling silver tags, and added Swarovski crystals in their favorite colors. The tags can also be made into necklaces instead.


Next books up, for 2011? WITCH EYES by Scott Tracey, BLUE & EGG by Lindsay Ward, and LIAR SOCIETY by Lisa and Laura Roecker! Oh, and Niki Smith just released a digital comic called IN MAPS AND LEGENDS.
GEEZ, tone the success down people! ;--)
