(Please note that this contest ended on August 25th. But please visit my contest page to win other fun prizes!)
When you go to the RWA conference there is a ton of free stuff to pick up. Everywhere. Books, bookmarks, pens, pencils, publisher’s tchotchkes, and more books. This year I exercised due restraint, mostly because I knew the DH would be around when I was packing up and I’d have to hear the complaints of “why are you bringing that stuff home?” Okay, he’d probably call it all junk, but he’s a man and just doesn’t get it.
But quite honestly, I just don’t have the room for more books and goodies, so my over-stuffed, downsized office makes for a good blog contest. So here it is, the Conference Goodie Giveaway, with these very simple rules:
1) Who’s going to win? Some lucky, random commenter on my blog between August 1st and before noon PDT on August 25th. All you have to do is leave a comment. Comment every day if you like (well, at least try to say something relevant, but if you want to start an entire discussion, that’s cool too!). Want an extra entry? Reference my blog in your blog or on your favorite message board and track back to this blog entry and you get a double entry. Basically, tell all your friends.
2) So what’s in the box? Well, a bunch of books that I got at conference, (including an autographed copy of Love Letters from a Duke) some bookmarks I snuck into the suitcase, bookmarks for Tempted by the Night, some Elizabeth Boyle pens, Avon Fortune Cookies, a lipstick USB drive, and since there was a little space in the box, I tossed in
a hand knit clutch that I made a few months back and thought I would take to conference. I forgot to take it, so I thought someone else might like it, and they might like a little purse for all the conference essentials (pens, room key, coffee money.)
So there it is. Easy, cheesy. Comment, be the lucky number and win. And if you don’t win, don’t worry. On August 26th there is a great consolation prize. Tempted by the Night comes out at a bookstore near you. You can weep all over your copy.
