OK, grab your beverage of choice and take a dip in the Waterworld Mermaid lagoon for a little bit of promo fun.
Recently, I came across a free website that helps you make digital wallpaper. This is a great gimmie to post on your website for fans to download. Or if you have a street team, you can provide member-only wallpaper with your characters’ quotes, book covers and more.
I started out by doing a quick Google search for customizable wallpaper programs. Here’s the one I used to create the wallpapers featured in this post. All you have to do is pick a background, add images and text and bam! you have wallpaper.
There really isn’t a learning curve for this. The most important thing is to hit the save button before adding additional elements to the wallpaper. Also, you can add as much text as you want, but there is a limit to how much you can add at one time. When you reach that limit just place the text where you want it, hit save and then add more text until you have everything on there that you want.
Cool, right? You could use this for book releases, author branding, celebrations or just about anything else. How fun would it be to have a contest for the best fan-produced wallpaper? That would be a great way to get others to help you promote your books.
