My husband and I brainstormed back in the fall on a very cute RED giveaway idea! I ordered all RED crayons from Crayola and he googled for a little bag to hold the crayon ... he found the perfect little crayon holder from ClearBags.com ... I was so excited that everything got delivered in time for me to make these to give away
I printed the book cover with the release information for RED
put the Red crayon in the ClearBag and tied them together with ribbon
I purchased a Red flower pot from Target and placed a Red plastic
tablecloth at the bottom to lift up the give away
VOILA!!!! I love them! And everyone who purchases a Red book through me
will ALWAYS get one of these!!!!!!
On another stormy May day in Texas, I hopped in the car at 6:15am and headed off to the Dallas Hyatt Regency. I was a little nervous driving in the storm ... but took it slow and steady and it was exciting to get there! Reunion Tower is right next to the Hyatt. One of these days maybe I'll take a trip to the top of that! Did Valet parking for my car since it was pouring down rain ... and when I walked into the HYATT I saw this and RT BOOKLOVERS CONVENTION projected on this huge column and was sooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!
Here is my table .... I love setting it up
And can't believe I used to go to book events with 1 book... soon I'll have 5 -- YIKES!!!!

You cannot attend the RT (Romantic Times) Convention without
seeing COVER MODELS!!!
I sat across from this Cover Model (Don Allen) all day ... tough job!
Yep ... that's him on the front of that book!!!
OKAY ... when this Cover Model (James D. Magnussen) stops at your table and wants to buy your books for his 3 kids...
you're like "REALLY you have 3 KIDS!?!!!?
What a sweet guy ... hope he has a safe trip back home to Arizona!
And I hope your kids enjoy the books!!!
