Aloha to Barbara Vey's Reader Appreciation Luncheon - Goody Bags!

Continuing my recap of Barbara Vey's Reader Appreciation Luncheon (link and link), everyone received a tote bag from Debbie Macomber, the guest speaker, plus a dozen books!

Each author donated a door prize.  I was chatting when the first author began to read the numbers ... 

5 ... 3 ... 1 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 7 

I won "spy tools" from romantic suspense author Cindy Dees!

How lucky are you?  Have you won anything from a raffle, lottery, or other game of chance?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's posts win a book choice from my convention stash. Comments are open through Saturday, May 3, 10 pm in Baltimore.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, May 4.

  1. Love your cool prize. I have won a couple of raffles when I was a kid.

  2. Congrats! I am fortunate enough to win all kinds of things (of course I compulsively enter contests all over the place, lol). Looks like it's a great meeting, glad you are having such a good time!

  3. Great yes I have it is great, thanks

  4. I win every once in a while. I do have good luck with blogs and winning books.

  5. I have won quite a few books and amazon gift cards. I feel very lucky whenever I win. Lottery wins however not much.
    Lucky you to go these great events.

  6. Congrats on the win and this sounds like it was a very fun event :) I win free books occasionally and it feels awesome!!! Thanks for sharing with us!

  7. Congratulations on your win Kim. I've never won anything in a raffle. My husband did many years ago though.

  8. Congrats! Once in a while

  9. I haven't had much luck with raffles. I do win books and gift cards on the blogs I visit.
