Okay, bookmark collectors, I have a deal for you. A real deal. Free. Easy. No drawing, no contest -- everyone's a winner. Romance writers are generous by nature and serious promoters, and my chapter got so many bookmarks and promotional items for our retreat that we couldn't use them all. I brought the box home and will share with you first and then take what's left to book signings.

So Blogettes, all you have to do is send me a stamped self-addressed envelope and I will send you bookmarks--many of them autographed. If you put on one stamp, I'll send you a few; if you put on two stamps, I'll send you more. Some of these are postcards and bookcovers and they take a 5x7 envelope and adequate postage. There are also a few magnets, which are heavy - consider that when you add postage. You get the drift. Maureen McKade sent posters which would require an 8 1/2 x 11 envelope if you want one of those (please specify).

The only rule is a deadline. I want to send these out and be finished and not have requests dribbling in forever. I live miles from my PO box. So...

Mail your request by JANUARY 22nd. That's one week to read this and stick an envelope in the mail. Send to:
PO BOX 24732
OMAHA, NE 68124

I will wait until the 26th to make sure I have all the requests and then I'll mail out your envelopes. That way I can divide up fairly and make sure everyone gets a good selection.

Who loves ya?


  1. I love this-- everyone is a winnner! WOW those bookmarks are great-- I can't wait to see Maureen McKades poster! Now I am off to hunt up an envelope!
    Thanks Cheryl

  2. This is great idea they are nice to let you share all these good things. Can't wait to see what we get. Mine is in the mail.

  3. I am so glad you made it home okay, we were really worried about you when it kept snowing like it did. Hopefully you were able to enjoy yourself with all the other lovely writers.
    We all love ya!

  4. Thanks, Brenda. It was a LOT colder in Lincoln, in fact I was surprised when I got back and got out to put gas in my car that the air didn't have that bitter edge. There was more snow and blowing stuff close to Lincoln, but a few miles out it cleared and was more like weather here.

  5. Welcome back, Cheryl!
    I'm going to skip this offer as I have so much promo stuff now I don't what to do with it all. Katrina and Carol can attest to this. *g* I'm thinking about making a collage with all my stuff. Coverflats, postcards, bookmarks, etc.
    I've thrown some out and I've sent some to friends. I'll probably continue to do that but thanks anyway. :-)

  6. Welcome back! This is a great giveaway. Thanks so much! My envelope is in the mail. :-)

  7. Thanks for the fun prizes!

    I just now got my electricty back on (after being w/o it for 4 days!!!!). Who needs to do laundry when they have blogs to catch up on!! :) I have my priorities in order :)

  8. No electricity! Kathleen, are you in one of the areas that had all the ice and snow??? Poor baby! Were you warm? How did you eat? And have hot water? oh man....
