So what am I giving away? I’ll have a copy of my book and the two anthologies, but just having books is kind of boring. Don’t you think? While in
I bought some yarn (Homespun--super soft!!) and made this quick scarf: California
Isn’t it pretty? I also made a bookmark, but it didn’t turn out quite like I thought:
Of course, I tend to be picky, so I should just put it in there anyway.
I also have a Pittsburgh Steelers mug I might put in there, because, well, there’s this scene in My Sunny Vampire… If you’ve read the book, you know what I mean. And if you haven’t, maybe I’ve piqued your interest now? Hmmm?
The last thing I might add would be a chocolate bar or maybe some coffee (items Sunny misses--also in the book). The only thing I can’t think of is what kind of basket to put it all into. Or should I even USE a basket? Maybe a bag instead? I mean, most people are traveling, probably by air, so I should try to make it as easy as possible to transport back home. Got any suggestions?
The thing that gets me is how BIG (translation: EXPENSIVE) some of the gift baskets are ($50 gift cards, Kindles, iPads, that sort of stuff). It doesn’t cost anything to enter to win these things, so the prizes really baffle me. Well, not if it comes from a publisher. I can almost understand that. But from an author? I can’t justify giving a lot away, you know? And I’m thinking of donating a basket to Lori Foster’s event, too (of which tickets for those gift baskets are sold, though, and proceeds go to charity), so I really don’t want to go overboard.
So…what kind of things do you look for in a gift basket? Oh, and did you see the University of
win last night??? Go UD Flyers!!! Elite Eight!!! Dayton
Have a good weekend. I think it’s supposed to get warm!! Whoo hoo!!
