Avon + The Sak = Brilliant

Avon and The Sak has teemed up to give away a handbag and books each month. This month’s giveaway is the Silverlake Canvas Convertible Satchel($99 retail value) filled with two Meg Cabot books, 1 Rachel Gibson book and 1 Marion Keyes book. The giveaway is for 15 sets of the books + bag combo. It’s amazing what I’ll give up my email address for.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Now, which was more significant: the books, or the bag?

    It was the bag. I have a bag weakness.

    Ditto. I saw the post at Alison Kent’s and immediately decided I must win. A bag.

    FWIW, I don’t think (the handbag company) is related to Saks Fifth Avenue – but I’ve been known to be wrong.

    I believe you are correct, Alison. I have had a crochet bag from for years and they have never mentioned anything about Saks Fifth Avenue in the literature they’ve mailed me.

    Janine – I have one, too! The husband used to work at a high end e-tailer as their graphics manager, and was good about snagging me things when offered to the employees there.

    Alas, it’s good for US residents only :( You’d think they could find a way to at least make it North America wide!
