Romance Trading Cards-Here’s Mine

If you haven’t heard, Romancelandia is abuzz making romance trading cards in preparation for the the RT Booklovers Convention in Los Angeles.

Here’s my editions which I’ll be toting to the convention. I have a collectible set of four from Butterfly Swords and The Taming of Mei Lin. For Mei Lin & Shen Leung, I reveal a bit of secret history not available in the Undone short story. Enjoy!

The samples below show the front with the cover and the two versions of the back for each story. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to stay for the booksigning so I’ll be giving these away during my two CLUB RT spots.



If you’re headed to either RT or RWA or any conferences in between, look for this symbol to find participating authors.

The full list of participants and more sample cards can be found at I can’t wait for the fun to begin!

Of course, newsletter subscribers will always get first dibs. I’ll be giving details about how to get these cards in the March edition of the newsletter which is out Tuesday. Sign up here.

    Thanks Mary! They were a lot of fun to make too. I loved writing up the character profiles.

    Dara – I got the paintings from an artist I hired from DeviantArt and the others were from the cover. There’s also stockphoto sites all over where you can find pics

    Jeannie, did you get your cards yet? I just received mine, and the backs are all upside down. The Gotprint guys said I was supposed to flip the back myself, but I didn’t see that posted anywhere on their site.

    Just warning the masses here, but mine are all upside down. I hope they fix them for me. :-/
