SHOP AND SUPPORT SISTERS IN CRIME/LA
THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
BUY THE FIXINGS FOR YOUR HOLIDAY MEALS FROM RALPHS!
REDEEM OUR REWARDS WITH RALPHS AND HELP SISTERS IN CRIME/LA! – Grocery store chain Ralphs has a Community Rewards program and we are a designated recipient. Which means that if you have a Ralphs card, you can sign in on the website, www.ralphs.com, go to the Community Rewards page and pick us to receive a percentage of what you buy at the store. The program costs you nothing. We can use the money to help support programs like workshops and other events. In addition, we’re hoping to start a scholarship program to encourage young writers. Anything we get is a help. Just register your rewards card and choose to Sisters in Crime Los Angeles (YS250 as of August 17, 2018) as the charity you would like to support. After you register, your purchases will be credited to Sisters in Crime Los Angeles and Ralph’s will donate a percentage (up to 4%) of your total to Sisters in Crime Los Angeles.

Book Release Coming?
ANNOUNCE IT IN THE SinC/LA
WHAT’S NEW THIS MONTH EMAIL!
Each month hundreds of InBoxes sizzle with the exciting new SinC/LA WHAT’S NEW THIS MONTH email, highlighting all new book releases and a monthly run-down of author events, put out by our Social Media board member to inboxes everywhere. As part of our ongoing mission to add to the value of your membership, we compile information on the latest hot releases by our author members for an email to the hundreds of mystery lovers on our contact list. If you’re a current, paid up member of the National chapter and Sisters in Crime/LA releasing a new crime fiction or mystery soon, go to the MEMBERS ONLY NEW RELEASE SUBMISSIONS section, enter your member password, and follow the instructions to fill out your submission form; the information will go to our Social Media and Public Relations board member to be handled in the next mailing.
Please note that the SinC/LA WHAT’S NEW THIS MONTH E-MAIL now goes out on THE 25TH OF EACH MONTH, so plan your submissions accordingly. Also, please note that release information will no longer appear in RANSOM NOTES as of the October 2019 issue; this will mean only submitting once and targeting a larger audience!
