Feedback to run a contest for you awesome readers!y

I have decided to do something cool when I come back from RT. A weeks worth of posts on this blog, involving pictures, info and anecdotes from the week Im at the convention. And to celebrate I'll be giving away most of the hoarde I get while there.

See, I am a strange bird because I pick everything up, but I normally keep none of it. In Houston, I came home with almost 300 print books, and kept about 5. Were did the rest go? I had book signings after it and the people that showed to the book signings got special goodie bags.

Last year, I came home with like 20 books (sad right, not much going on by way of freebies last year, so im nervous for this year) and gave them all away on my blog with the goodies and fun other stuff I collected. that went over well...

So I'm going to rock my contest week again, and maybe, just maybe I'll have some other authors joining me. And Yes... these contests will be open to those overseas, so yes, just because you dont live in the good ole US of A doesn't mean you can win!

So Since Im not at RT yet, Im going to open the floor to you guys, the readers, to tell me what kinda things you wanna win. Now bear in mind there not much by way of "premium" items we (the regular attendees) get. Thats mostly reserved for the booksellers of the invite only publisher parties. What authors bookmarks do you want? Do you like pens? How about free books? any authors on the whole you would be joyous to get goodies from?

the more info I get the more I can collect. Im bringing a big box to fill to bring back with me so dont be shy!
