Let the Countdown Begin!

We are officially a week out from this year's Writers For Hope donor reveal!

I'm extremely excited to bring you the names of the many absolutely wonderful people who are taking part in this year's auction. That so many are donating is a stunning reminder of the good in this world. And, on top of that, the items that they're donating are completely made of magic. (Just you wait!)

Be sure to check in at the Writers for Hope website on Monday, March 7.

Until then, I leave you with this in the hopes that it offers you the same inspiration it does me...

#WritersForHope Take Three!

Hello, friends!

I am over-the-moon excited to announce that the 3rd Annual Writers For Hope Online Auction is officially in the works - and shall be held on Monday, April 4, 2016 from 12:00am - 11:59pm!

The donor list is growing (by the hour!) because book people are the best people. We have lots of Writers For Hope returners, as well as some exciting new faces. 

I, very honestly, don't know that I will ever get over the extreme generosity of people - not just a willingness to give, but an excitement over it. One response I received to a donation request began simply with "YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES!!!"

This year's auction is going to work the same as previous events. Readers, writers and book lovers get twenty four hours to bid on this year's fantastic items. The only difference is that this year, the auction will take place at the brand-spanking-new Writers for Hope website! Meander on over and check it out. 

I'll be listing updates there and here, plus don't forget to follow #WritersForHope on Twitter. And, for all those of you who are interested in donating to a fantastic cause, but can't wait for the auction - you can donate here at any time!

Finally, THANK YOU, to everyone who has made this event so successful in the past and to everyone who's planning on participating this year.
