To swag or not to swag

Limecello recently did a blog post titled On Author Promo & Swag that I found really interesting. And timely, of course, since I’ve committed to going to RWA Nationals for the first time this year. Considering how much it’s going to cost my family to vacation in NYC, though, I won’t be doing swag.
