I recently saw one new author turn to Cafe Press to create online t-shirts, mugs, and other paraphernalia advertising his book. I'm tucking this idea into the back of my head for possible future use. Cafe Press has free basic packages that allow you to create stuff with your logo or advertisement that can be sold online. For a yearly payment of around $70, you can do a premium package with them that has more design choices than the basic package. Cafe Press could be an option for those of you with your own website who could link it to your own "shop" on Cafe Press's site, especially if you have written something that has creative catch phrases, or you have fans, friends, or family who might enjoy items with tag phrases from your books. Little cost to you, some profit, and some "free" advertising.
