Announcing the 2023 Constant Readers for a Cause Fall Fundraiser benefiting Binc!

In celebration of Stephen King's new novel Holly we are pleased to announce that Constant Readers for a Cause will be selling signed copies of Holly.

Whew that's a wall of text, thank you for posting it! Is there a website URL to go with this, or just the emails linked in the announcement?

Since the deadline is October 9th, I'll put this in the monthly newsletter for more visibility.

Sure, no problem! Just looking out for fellow collectors here- they only accept entries via e-mail & i don't believe they actually have a website. 😉

Also, on the contest part of above post, if you're (or anyone else is) going to participate and donate books to enter the raffle to win one of the 2 signed copies; they will count the package as one entry, you will only get one entry no matter how many packages you sent over + be sure to slip in a little note with your contact info in case that they will need to contact you if actually win a copy.

That is all folks.

Should I have gotten some kind of response from them that they received my email entry?

Thanks!

None whatsoever, they won't reply to confirm entries- too much work i guess, good luck though!
