Epic critique & book auction for Family Violence Prevention

Swati Avasthi, author of YA novel SPLIT has put together a huge auction to raise money for the Family Violence Prevention Fund. I donated a signed copy of My Invented Life and a first chapter critique. Many, many, many others have donated cool stuff.

You can bid on a critique of your query and first chapter by top-flight agents and editors, Rosemary Stimola, Nathan Bransford, Mandy Hubbard, and Brian Farrey. You can bid on a year long subscription to YA Lit Chat. And there are many hard to find ARCs, and signed novels to choose from.

Check it out here. Bidding ends November 1st.

Helping Haiti Heal

We’ve all been devastated by the stories and images coming out of Haiti, wondering how to help. My son’s class held a bake sale that raised $627 dollars for Doctors Without Borders. Which was great!

And now the Awesome 2009 Debutantes (including moi) have joined a larger effort called Helping Haiti Heal, a live fundraising webcast.

Writers from J.K. Rowling all the way down to lowly have donated books and other fun things for an auction. Have a look at all the goodies. And bid, bid, bid 🙂 Bids will be accepted through January 30th.

Shop for the greater good!
