This year, the conference bags for RWA 2009 were provided by Harlequin, which was awesome for two reasons. First, they had vintage cover art. Second, they were BLOODY HUGE. I mean, there could not have been a bag better suited to the book signings and the massive influx of books provided at RWA. You could put a Yugo in there.
I don’t have the books that came with the bag because I gave them to a teacher from Omaha. The AFT was ending their conference the day I arrived, and one of the teachers shared an elevator with me. You should have seen her face when she realized that OUR conference bags came with ROMANCE NOVELS. She was not pleased that her conference bag was not so well equipped!
I know many people expressed drooling envy over the bags – which is understandable because they are Teh Coolness – so I’ve got two for you. Leave a comment and I’ll pick a random winner. If you were at RWA, what was your favorite part? What part did you get the most out of? And if not, are you coming next year to Nashville? You’ve got 24 hours – ready set go!
ETA: I have one more! Barb Ferrer is giving away her bag, so there’s three for grabs. Thanks, Barb!
ETA II: Electric Bugaloo – Edie asked, “I don’t suppose you would be willing to send one to Australia?? It was a bit too far for me to travel to go to the conference.” Unless otherwise specified, I will ship all prizes for any giveaway internationally. See the ads over there?—> Them’s most of my postage budget, baby, yeah.
ETA III: Jane from Dear Author is throwing hers in, so that’s four bags up for grabs. Woo hoo!
ETA IV: MORE! Julie James has offered her bag- so we got five!
ETA V: STILL MORE Katiebabs has offered hers, too.
ETA VI: What? Yes! Shiloh Walker has given hers to the party, too. SEVEN baby!
