Nice idea for a book launch
Barbara Jean Hicks is pairing her launch with a fundraiser--and we can participate even though she's moved to another region (sniff, sniff). She writes:
A percentage of all store purchases from Friday 8/28 through Sunday 8/30 will go to the Rio Healthy Kids Initiative if you mention you are part of the Rio District Fund Raiser. That includes all books, magazines, cards, toys, CD's, DVD's, BlueRay and even food items from the in-store Starbucks!
If you live far away or can't make it to the store, you can still participate.
Find the items you want at www.bn.com and calling the Ventura store at 805-339-0990 to place a phone order. Purchases will be shipped free of charge from a B&N warehouse near you.
If my book is among your purchases, the store will send you a signed bookplate in a separate envelope. When you place your order, tell the customer service rep if and how you'd like the bookplate personalized. If you prefer to have the book itself signed, you may also order a copy directly from the store for a $3.99 shipping fee added to purchase price.
