Freebie Friday: How To Get Free Author Swag

*click on pictures to enlarge*

Today I wanted to tell you about a site that you probably don't know about but should, Author Island. You can get a big box of author swag for the price of shipping, *inside the US $12.35 or if using Paypal $13.35* but she also sends to outside the US all you have to do is email her and she'll tell you how much the shipping fee would be, other than that everything is FREE! That's right, all you pay is the shipping charge and I had so much stuff inside my box that I had to use my couch and coffee table to spread it all out so you could see it. 

In my box was, 6 books, 2 tote bags, 3 sampler CD's, 40 refrigerator magnets, a butt load of bookmarks, cover flats, candy, pens, key chains, nail files, a ruler, a stuffed dragon, rubber duckie, post cards, magnetic buttons and notepads. 

There was so much stuff that Ken helped me spread it all out on the couch and coffee table so I could take a picture of it. 

And all you have to do in order to get this is pay $12.35 shipping *or $13.35 if using Paypal*

Some of the cover flats and book marks are autographed and one of my books was autographed by the author. The tan book bag was also autographed by Cheryl Dragon. 

So if you've been wondering how to get more author swag, here's your chance to load up on the stuff, plus get some great extras. Just visit Author Island and check out how to get a box of goodies for yourself.

This is an Award-Free blog. It is a lovely gesture, but I am unable to comply with the terms of the awards so I have made this an Award-Free blog. Thank You for understanding.
