Last month, Fatin aka @Mad4rombks, who has been a commenter here and is a valued member of the romance community with her RR&H Novel Thoughts & Book Talk, lost her husband in a horrible shooting at his store. Authors, editors and other members of the community have come together to help raise funds to help her and her four daughters in “Operation Auction” where you can bid on books, gift baskets, critiques, etc. Not everything is up for bid immediately. They’re being released in three different batches (for details about the various times the batches will be released check here.)
I’m donating an autographed print copy of Personal Protection, along with an e-copy of Private Property, and and ARC (Advanced Review Copy) of Deliberate Deceptions. (Which doesn’t release until May 17th, so you’ll get to read it before everyone else.) It’s not up to be bid on yet, so you’ll have to keep checking back to see if it’ll be in batch two or three. But in the meantime, check out the auction because there are some fantastic packages up for auction in the first batch.
