Six Authors of electronic books have teamed up to present a raffle to benefit students in the Los Angeles City College writing programs. Free CDs and goodie bags with information about the raffle and the author’s books will be distributed at the LA Times Festival of Book on the UCLA campus, April 23 and 24, 2005 at the Author’s Coalition Booth 610 near the Barnes and Noble Pavilion, while supplies last. It isn’t necessary to attend the fair to participate in the raffle.
An array of fifty-three great prizes beckon potential winners, including two in which a winner’s name is written into a novel! There are also autographed copies of books by well-known authors, complimentary dinners at restaurants in the Santa Monica and Westwood areas of Los Angeles, a hand-blown glass Fairie Light by Fenton, antique hatbox and more. Tickets are $1 and may be purchased at the Double Dragon Publishing and TRI Studio websites.
Six authors are involved with the project, including Carolyn Howard-Johnson, whose book, The Frugal Book Promoter, was named USA Book News' “Best Professional Book 2004.” She is the winner of the California Legislature’s “Women of the Year in Arts and Entertainment” award. Other authors include Marilyn Peake, award winning author of the children’s book The Fisherman’s Son, as well as Ann Durand, flash fiction award winner and author of the best selling novel A Promise to Keep. Other participants are Sandra Leigh, author of Mercy’s Ransom, K.L Nappier, who won awards for her novel Full Wolf Moon, and Susan Merson, award winning actress and author of YOUR NAME HERE: An Actor and Writer’s Guide to Solo Performance.
The fair is one of the country’s premiere literary events and is free to the public. Find some of the authors, including Howard-Johnson at booth 610 in the Barnes and Noble pavilion area. The Festival promises endless booths, book signings, poetry readings, and an extensive children’s area with books for sale.
