A Basket of Romance

RomanceBasket-CRR Authors

A Basket is up for grabs at the Mercer PA newly renovated library!

Actually, 6 baskets with 6 different themes are up for raffle, donated by library patrons. The one I took in is shown above: a bit of romance by CRR authors.

As a Friend of the Library, I received the call for themed basket donations in the newsletter and decided to go for romance and reading!

I put out the call a few weeks before the basket was due and am so very grateful to the Classic Romance Revival authors who donated books, ebooks, pens, and postcards to represent CRR!

The basket contains:

Print Books by CRR authors:

One Small Victory by Maryann Miller
Samael by Marion DeSisto

So if you’re in the Mercer County area and would love a little romance and reading break, grab raffle tickets at the library! And be sure to check out the authors above who so generously donated to help build the library’s fund! (All romances in the basket are on the classic side. Check CRR for details.)

The basket is lovely. So happy you were able to collect enough goodies and books to fill six baskets.

Hi Loraine,
The basket looks wonderful. Glad you were able to get enough donations to fill it. Hope all goes well for the event.



Lindsay Townsend said...

Hi LK! Wonderful basket! Hope the event goes really well!

Stephanie Burkhart said...

Loraine, It's a great basket! Let us know how the event goes. Smiles, Steph

Hi Maryann, I should have been more specific. Only one of the 6 baskets is my donation. The rest came from other library supporters. :-) This one is packed full, though, and fairly heavy! I appreciate your contribution to it!

Margaret and Steph, thank you, also, for donating and coming by. Leave your web links if you'd like.

Hey Lindsay, I was glad to share my copy of your novel, since I enjoyed is so much. :-)

Loraine, thank you for sharing. Blessings.

Hello, JBR. Thanks for coming by!

An update: I received a thank you card from the library that said they made over $400 from the basket raffles! Thanks again to all of the authors who donated. :-)
