All Things Raffled


I've been away from the blog for a bit. I suppose you could say I was on a blog hait--hati---how bout blog vacation? Anyhoo...I got this email from my friend Carolyn all know her I'm sure. She's the author of THE FRUGAL BOOK PROMOTER, How to do what your publisher won't...(like you didn't already know her!). This woman is like bird poop, everywhere. I visit a new site, she's featured there...I enroll in a new e-zine, she's in it...I mean, I want her for a publicity agent, ya know? If by some tiny chance you DON'T know who I'm talking about, go to and introduce yourself. Tell her da Queen sent ya...

Now...where was I? Oh yeah. Carolyn sent me this notice and I thought it was important enough to post it here on my blog, so without any further ramblings, here tis:

I thought you might all be interested in a raffle that will benefit the LA Community College Writers' Program (scholarships!) Associated with my Authors' Coalition booth (#610 near the Barnes and Noble Pavilion at the LA TIMES/UCLA Festival of Books), it offers 53 prizes including LA area restaurant gift certificates. Winners get to choose five prizes eachfrom this formidable list, hey, jackpot!!Tickets are $1 and you get one for every dollar you submit. Check it out, if only to see what you can win. Just think of how much good we could do if everone just risked $1. Here's the link: and click on Feeling Lucky? Youcan view raffle details there.

If you come to the fair, drop by our booth. We are giving free humorous gift books with every purchase while supplies last
