I love my local RWA chapter, the OKRWA Outlaws. Always great stuff going on at our meetings.
Saturday was the Booksellers and Librarians Reception at Nonna's restaurant in Bricktown, OKC. Above, yours truly and three of our guests--and that would be the amazing Georgina Gentry just barely in the frame to the right.
Great desserts. Stimulating company. Champagne. Lots of talk about how we can all work together to promote books and reading. We're thinking of making this an annual event. I'm all for that.
Oh, and we had a few extra goodie bags left after each bookseller and librarian had hers. We held a drawing.
Guess what? I won one.
I want to pass this treat along. Contains a number of fun book-related goodies--including two advance excerpt pamplets from upcoming books by P.C Cast and exciting new author, Jordan Dane. There's also a signed copy of Janis Reams Hudson's June '06 Special Edition, Winning Dixie. And you know I'll throw in a signed Christine Rimmer book, as well.
Just post on my blog--this entry or newer ones--in the next week to have your chance to win. I'll randomly draw a winner Tuesday, May 1.
