Romancing the Holidays

Time is approaching again for the Central Florida Romance Writer's annual Romancing the Holidays benefit signing. I know, I know - the holidays are a long way off, but donations of books and promo materials for the 100 goody bags and many raffle baskets we make are starting to pile up in my dining room. But it's all for a good cause. Barnes & Noble donates a portion of the proceeds to the Adult Literacy League and virtually every penny raised from raffle tickets goes directly to the charity. So far, we have more than 20 authors scheduled to participate in the event to be held on Saturday, November 7 from 2-5 pm at the Altamonte Mall near Orlando. If you are interested in donating books and promotional items, please email me through my website. Special thanks to those authors who have generously donated books to the cause and particularly those who sent me substantial numbers of books so far - Brenda Novak, Karen Kelley, and Susan Meier.
If you love to read, the signing is a must. The first 100 customers get a free goody bag packed with books, pens, bookmarks and all sorts of promotional goodies! And at only a $1 a ticket, you get a chance to win a themed raffle basket. There are many to choose from.
Stay tuned for more information as the date nears.
