When a professional comes to your home or office to do a job, they always leave a business card in case you need to contact them again. This is something all authors should do themselves.
Leaving a calling is anything that reminds the person you are talking to about you. A calling card could be an actual business card. It could be a flyer or even your signature in an email with a link back to you. It can also be something you said, something memorable. Some people walk away from conventions with ten business cards but only one stands out because it was simply something that person said.
Always leave a calling card.
Have business cards available wherever you go. Have a signature on all of your email address with links back to you and how to purchase your books. Sign things a certain way so that your signature stands out. This calling card will follow you. Make it something people will remember.
