What would you do for fifty bucks?
Last Saturday 11/11 we did a book signing at Half Price Books in University City to promote the various books in which our stories are published.
We met some interesting people and connected with a woman who was a former Texan and multi-published Chicken Soup writer. You never know who you will meet.
Our town has several strong writing communities. I'm one of several local, multi-published writers in the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. We promote our books and try to give back to the community.
THIS Saturday 11/18, from 11:00 - 3:00 Tammy Goodsell, Cathi La Marche, Lynn Obermoeller, Pat Wahler, and I will be at Half Price Books in St. Charles in Bogey Hills Plaza off Zumbehl and Highway 70. If you are out and about, drop by and say hi and bring a can of soup. We'd love to see you.
WE WILL BE COLLECTING CANNED GOODS TO BE DONATED TO A LOCAL FOOD PANTRY.
THOSE WHO PURCHASE A CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL BOOK for $10 WILL HAVE THEIR NAME ENTERED INTO A DRAWING FOR A $50.00 GIFT CARD, REDEEMABLE FOR MERCHANDISE AT HALF PRICE BOOKS.
Chicken Soup for the Soul books make great gifts!
I hope you had a good turnout!
I wanted to just copy what you said and post it on my blog, but instead I'm putting a link :-)
Hope you had a nice turnout. That was a great incentive to buy one of the books.
I'll be in Oklahoma that day to visit my college boy, but I feel like I should send a proxy to buy a book. Mainly for the chance to win the gift card, and use it to buy books for Sioux to read in case she gets locked up for disorderly conduct!
You're fortunate to belong to such a wonderful and active group. Hope the earlier turnout was great, and that the upcoming one brings in a lot of donations for your local food pantry.
What a fun day!
