Avon Books Celebrates Diamond Anniversary, Princess Style


Who wouldn’t want to celebrate a landmark event with a once-in-a-lifetime cruise?

This year, Avon Books celebrates its 75th anniversary by offering readers the chance to win a seven day Eastern Caribbean cruise for two people, sailing roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, FL, courtesy of Princess Cruises. In addition, the winner will receive a $500 gift card that may be used toward airfare…and a boatload of 25 Avon books!

Launched in 1941, Avon is renowned for widely popularizing the historical romance category.

Promotional partners BookingBuddy®, Oyster.com and Woman’s Day have joined forces to float airfare for two, with a travel gift certificate valued at $500.
