This is Heart of Dixie's of saying "thank you" to the people who support romance by buying our books, talking about them, and reviewing them online. It's so much fun to see the long line of women (and a few men) waiting to go inside the luncheon room. There they will sit with published authors and have an opportunity to listen to a fabulous keynote speaker as well as get all kinds of goodies.
|Both baskets ready to go to the Heart of Dixie Reader's Luncheon|
As part of our luncheon we always have baskets for readers to bid on as well as an author basket giveaway. Everyone who is registered for the luncheon has an opportunity to win this basket. Tingling with excitement over here. Usually there is what I call a "lucky table" where the same people win over and over again. Imagine carrying home a boatload of baskets and goodies and books and more home. It's so much fun.
|Debut Author Basket|
This year I'm donating two baskets to the luncheon. One is my BREAK OUT THE BUBBLY AND THE DARK CHOCOLATE: CELEBRATING DEBUT AUTHORS basket and the other one is my DEBUT SUMMER 2014 ENTANGLED RELEASE basket.
|Darling College Kid made the beautiful label.|
Here's the list of the wonderful authors who contributed to the basket and the contents:
Marilyn Baron & Sharon Goldman: Murder at the Outlet Mall
Adrienne Giordano: Justifiable Cause: The Chase & Bullet Earrings
Wendy S. Marcus: When One Night isn't Enough & Pen
Jennifer McQuiston: What Happens in Scotland & Bookmark

Carla Swafford: Circle of Danger and Coasters, Bookmarks, & Postcards
Cute Terra Cotta Planter
