I'm taking a break from my (crappy-life-imposed) hiatus to tell you about the upcoming nuptials of good friend, and a unique promo opportunity.
Most of you know by now that my alter ego is a NICU nurse. One of my co-workers--an awesome young lady whose bubbly personality makes me smile every time I see her--is getting married in May. She and her husband-to-be are planning a special theme, and they need our help.
That's where we come in. Shyrleen has been gathering books from friends and secondhand stores, but she needs more. When I heard about her plans, I offered to donate some copies and spread the word. I get to help a good friend, promote reading, and get some (almost) free advertising. It's a win-win-win!
Here are the details...
What: New or gently used books. Novels are great, but non-fiction works, too. (Content preference: No sex, mild language, violence okay.) Sending duplicate copies is okay as long as the number is within reason.
There will be children at the reception, so children's and middle-grade books are welcome.
Bookmarks and related swag (pens, etc.) are also welcome. Authors, consider autographing your books and swag.
When: Shyrleen and Chris have set a date in mid-May, so I'll set mid-April as the deadline.
Where: I've offered to collect the items and deliver them to Shyrleen. Mail donations to: Truelove Press, 19703 Coldfield Dr, Katy, TX 77449.
What do you think of Shyrleen's bookish reception?
How's your life going? Any exciting news?
