Here’s an awesome marketing tool for authors. It’s called a wordle and can be found at Wordle.com. You can create your own wordle, using your own words, colors, and configurations. It’s very simple. Here’s the one I did for The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Prophecies.
The process takes very little time – all you have to do is type in the words, pick a font, pick a color and play around with the configurations (all horizontal, all vertical, some of both, etc). Once you are finished, you can save the product to the wordle site. This makes your wordle public, so anyone can view it. You can also take a screen shot (the FAQ provides a link that will guide you on how to do this) and save it for display on your website. You can use your creation to make t-shirts or posters or bookmarks. Whatever you want!
Wordle is fun and it’s free! So get out there and spread the wordle. Your wordle!
