Author Cynthea Liu is doing something unique for the launch of her new book: daring others to bid in her online auction, a fundraiser to provide classroom book sets to an elementary school that desperately needs it. Many, many authors, editors, and agents have donated their books and services so far, and the auction will last until July 5.
If you’re an author, I’m sure she’d love to have you donate a signed copy of your book or something to that effect. If you’re an editor or agent, consider donating a critique. If you’re a writer who’s still learning, check out how many different people you can get to take a look at a sample of your manuscript and give you their opinion! If you’ve been thinking about engaging my services for a submission packet, for example, look no further–right now the bidding on a critique from me, a $50 value, has a high bid of $35. So go check it out, bid on the services and prize packages, and help a school in need get the classroom sets of books Cynthea is working to provide for them.
I dare you!
