I have a long time fan who wants to start a fan club for me. (Isn't that lovely? We met years ago when I was promoting a scrapbooking how to book, and she's always called herself the president of my fan club.)
I'm curious. If you are a reader, what might interest you in a fan club? What might you expect? What would make it fun for you to join? Do you belong to any other fan clubs? How do they operate?
My fan club "President" Sharon came up with a list of ideas that scrapbookers might enjoy, since my book features a scrapbooker. But I'm not sure if I would be responsible for paying for all this? Or do some fan clubs charge a small amount to cover the cost of things? At least the mailing expenses? I'm clueless!
