Garwood's Year is Still a Winner
Daisy Maryles -- 11/17/97
Pocket Books declared that 1997 was Julie Garwood's year and the publisher was definitely on the money. Each of the Clayborne Brides series titles hit the national charts, and her Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie, Rose Hill, based on her earlier bestseller For the Roses, was the highest-rated TV movie of the year. For her last feat, Garwood's newest hardcover, Come the Spring, which finishes off the Clayborne family adventures, lands on all the national charts with a 325,000 first printing. Garwood saw an opportunity for a different kind of promotional tour. She will team up with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve to host its Toys for Tots events in bookstores in nine cities. Garwood will sign copies of her books and Marines will be on hand to help collect toys. In the weeks prior to the book signing, each store will promote the event by displaying Toys for Tots collection bins, encouraging customers to donate toys before or during the author's visit.
