Paying it Forward #2
In the interest of spreading a little joy, I have more books to give away!
I’m still working my way down through the pile of boxes to the copies of The Lure of the Moonflower and The Other Daughter, but, in the meantime, what I do have are lots of trade paperbacks of what I think of as the mid-Pinks: The Seduction of the Crimson Rose up through The Passion of the Purple Plumeria.
Do you know someone who’s feeling glum and could use a pick-me-up? Or who wanted the Pink books but couldn’t get them? I have three stacks of the Mid-Pink Collection to give away.
Following the feedback from the last Paying it Forward post, instead of first come first served, this give away will be done by random number generator. Just post below and I’ll pick the recipients at random on Thursday.
Happy September, all!
Me me me! 🙂
I think my mom would like the books. I loved them all!
I am in the process of reading through the Pinks! Thanks for the giveaway, Lauren!
*raises hand* me please!!
Would love this!
I was just diagnosed with cervical cancer, a lump was found in my breast, and I deal with a migraine headache on a daily basis…I definitely need a pick-me-up! (NOTE: I’m not feeling glum, just seeking something to read that will make me smile.)
I was diagnosed in March. If you want someone to vent with or just rant please feel free to email me. [email protected].
If either of you need someone to talk to please email me at [email protected]. I am an almost 8 year survivor and it helps to have a friendly email or two as you go through treatment.
I am always recommending this series!! I would love to give a copy with it!
Stressful time at work and can always use a smile. Pick me please!
Would love to pass on the books for others to read or donate to my local library that doesn’t seem to have enough of them 🙂
Just finished re-reading all your books with Pink for all seasons! Had to borrow them from the library. Would love to have them. Love the series!
I would love to own them in paperback. Thanks for the giveaway. 🙂
My mom would love to have these, I love to make her smile!
Going through the pinks (audio)from start to finish. I am in India with Penelope now. 🙂
My grandma is always reading and doesn’t leave the house since she took a tumble last winter.
I would definitely have to share this with my SIL who turned me on to them. She has some of them, but needs a few more so this would definitely be a treat for both of us!
I would love copies of these books to finish my collection!
I haven’t read any of your books. I would love to though.
I’d love to read these. I’ve only gotten through the first two Pinks, so far. And then I’m sure my neighbor would enjoy reading them.
Thanks for the chance to win.
This is a really cruddy month for me. I have an audit at work and just found out I have to move out of my rental house both by the end of the month! I could use a pick me up!
Would love to share your books. Love everything I’ve read of yours. 🙂
Oh, it’s been a nasty month for me — medical tests and a car accident. I’d love to catch up with some of these books!
I would share these with my Mom – for some reason, I have never found my own copy of Night Jasmine and she’s never read Orchid Affair … 🙂
I would share with my friend Diana. We are huge fans.
I’m missing some of these…thanks for the great giveaway!
I would love to have this series of books. I love your books.
I do I do I do! All of them!!!!
Robin and I would love to have some Pink books. We will share. I love historical novels that make me laugh out loud! You are the best, Lauren.
I read all 12 carnation books in 6 weeks- loved them- would love to own my copies
I have a former student who became a high school history teacher and is having a very challenging time of it just now, and could definitely use some funny history related reading!
I would love to have copies of Pink series! I have the first and would live to have a complete collection to re read!
I have the pink books that come before the crimson rose – would love to finish my collection and get back into the pink series.
I have loved these books sense I read them and always recommend them to anyone looking for something to read. I once bought the whole series for a friend for christmas. Never bought them for myself though. Such a good series
Oooh! Ooooh! *waves hand wildly* Pick me!!! As the lone representative of the male gender on this feed and a long-time Pink Carnation fan, supporter and adorer (I’m in the final chapters of Moonflower now) who has read every book (many of ’em multiple times), I would love to have a set of mid-Pinks. Hopefully yours…
Would love them, then would pass on to a friend who hasn’t read any of the series. My sis was loaning me hers but she couldn’t buy fora while so am books behind.
me to pass on to a friend
My mum would like them very much, she enjoys historical romance.
She needs a bit of a bright spot because my brother and sister now reside both abroad and don’t come home quite that often. It’s a bit of the empty nest syndrome.
I can’t lend her mine because I only have them digital.
Yay for giveaways! And do more book tours in other places outside of New York! 🙂
I would love the books. I am attempting to get my collection back together. I have lent out my books so often, I no longer have a complete set. So I would love new copies of any of your books!
I would love to have the collection, it would be the perfect birthday gift! (September 27th! =)) My sister also wants to read the series so it would be great to pass it on to her after I re-read them all!
Hello! I’d love your books for the NY Public Library. Happy autumn!
Hi, Aspasia! There’s a package for your library that’s already all packaged up and ready to go…. I’ve been mailing them two a day since that’s all I can carry to the post office, but yours should go out in the next batch.
I’m collecting these to retread!
I’d love to add to my collection!
Me! I hate to be selfish, but I would love the books. And I always share with friends in need.
I would love a few of them to plug the remaining holes in my collection and the rest to pass along to my mother-in-law who I keep raving about your books too!
The other books on my shelf are lonely for these books!
I love your books!
Jane Wooliston and Bex Porter made my summer reading list that much better this year! #GardenofIntrigue #theRoyalWe
Yes please! I’m missing a few, and I’m sure my public library would welcome the rest 🙂
*Raises hand* Pick me! Pick me!
As much as I’d love to have them I want to nominate my MOM!!!!! She works so hard with my health issues and is still the sweetest, nicest person I know!!
I’d love a copy of Purple Plumeria for my mum, who’s having a rough time at work and whose cat may have cancer (waiting on biopsy result)
I stumbled upon the Pink Carnation series about a month ago and absolutley LOVE it! Thank you for such a fun get away.
Would love the chance to share the Pinks with others!
My husband and I help maintain a Book Swap for Senior citizens. Would love to add these books to the collection. Thank you for many hours of great reading!
Love your books!!

Advance Christmas shopping.

I would love one, I’ve read all the Pink books and have thoroughly enjoyed them.
I will take whatever you’re willing to give away. I could totally use a Pink pick me up!
I have a friend who would love these books! Her mom has end stage cancer, and she would enjoy reading these as an escape. Hope I get picked!
I would love to win anything Lauren Willig writes! I just loved The Other Daughter! 🙂 xo
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I would love a copy of any of the books for a friend who just bought her very first house. It would be a lovely housewarming gift because she loves the series as much as I do, and her favourite colour is pink! What a lovely contest!
Yes! I just finished the Betrayal of the Blood Lily over vacation and it was the last of the first 5 or 6 books that I had prepurchased after reading the Pink Carnation. Would LOVE to win Orchid Affair, Garden Intrigue, and Passion of the Purple Plumeria!
Would love to give one to a friend who could use cheering up.
I badly need a copy of “The Mischief of the Mistletoe” to complete my Pink collection. I have all the others, but I never got my hands on that one. So, I would love to get that one.
I will Love to have copy of The Deception of the Emerald Ring, its the only one missing in my collection. I am reading The Lure of the Moonflower and I am loving it!
I”d love a copy!
I bought the first “Pink Carnation” book on a sale table at BAM. After reading it, I thought surely they made a mistake putting it on the sales table!! I was absolutely thrilled to find out that there were more in the series!! I would love to win any of them!!!
I love the Pink Carnation books, I always like when characters move forward and have their own stories. Would love my own copy, lost mine in a recent move. These are keeper books to read again and again,
