Here are two simple flyers to help publicize the campaign to save the Dresden Files. These flyers will look great
in the windows and on the bulletin boards of gaming stores, bookstores, libraries, comic book stores -- anywhere that Dresden
Files fans might happen to be!
Many places don't mind flyers being posted if you ask them nicely first. So if you'd like to spread the word to your fellow
fans, why not download these Word files, print out a few copies, and see if your favorite hangout will let you put one up?
Before you take the flyers in, you'll need to cut between the tabs at the bottom, so that they'll be easy to tear off and

Devoted fan Kersti Markey points out that May 5th is Free Comic Book Day, so if you can post a flyer at your local comic
book store before then, you're likely to get it seen by a lot of fans. Kersti wrote in to share her experience in putting
up flyers; as a result of her email, I've modified the flyers to include a note explaining that The Dresden Files are based
on Jim Butcher's novels.
Kersti says: "I got flyers out to 2 comic shops, 3 libraries, a Borders, and a Barnes and Noble.
"Barnes and Noble has a corporate policy about no postings in or on the store, but a helpful store employee told me it
was OK to post on the pillars or trash receptacles outside (I used the pillars). Libraries do not post anything that is for
profit. Once you explain that there is no money to be made they had no problems. Comic shops are really gearing up for Free
Comic Book Day. One that I went to is having a local Radio personality in store on that day. I emailed him and another known
Sci Fi fan DJ at the station to see if they might mention the campaign on the air.
"I had to explain a lot because not everyone knows that The Dresden Files come from Jim Butchers book series. People at
book stores and libraries were like this is TV…what does it have to do with reading??? I don’t know what on the
flyers could get that across, but if we thought of something it would sure save a lot of explaining.
"Overall reception for the flyers was very good and several people asked me to leave one copy behind another so there would
be more pull off tabs."
