Readers, aspiring authors, and book lovers of all kinds, do I have an auction for you!
Inspired by fellow romance author Stacey Abrams (who writes as Selena Montgomery) and her work to get out the vote, romance authors and their friends have banded together to raise money for Fair Fight, the New Georgia Project, and Black Voters Matter for the US Senate runoff elections in GA.
There are over 775 items donated by authors, agents, readers, and more. From an exquisite hand-knit shawl (back off, y’all, it will be mine!) to the ability to name a minor character in the next Kit Rocha book (why am I even linking this because… also mine! 😂) to a chat with my fabulous agent (I guess I’ll let someone else have it) there is something for everyone.
For my part, I’m offering up a complete set of Consortium Rebellion novels, signed and personalized (if desired), along with a few extra goodies.
In the happy event that the bidding for my auction goes over $100, I will also print out the first chapter of New Shiny, sign it, and include it in the package. You’ll get to read the chapter that sold my next trilogy a whole year (plus some) before the book comes out! Find out exactly what “spoilery things” I redacted from this snippet!
Edit: Okay, y’all are incredible and the bidding is already over $200! 😍💕😍💕 So, now I’ll include TWO CHAPTERS of New Shiny. That’s all I can do before my editor hunts me down because even she hasn’t seen the second chapter yet. But if the bidding keeps going up (which would be astounding because I thought $100 was a stretch!), I have a few more goodies I will throw in. It’ll be a surprise!
Now for the bad news: my auction is US only. I’m so sorry to all the international folks, but books are heavy and therefore very expensive to ship internationally. :(
But don’t be too sad because there are a BUNCH of other auctions and a lot of them are open internationally, especially the chats and other things that don’t need shipping.
The auction opens TODAY (Nov 18) at noon EST and runs through Nov 24 at 9:00 PM EST. You can create an account and add things to your watchlist before bidding opens so you’ll be ready to go ASAP.
Just don’t bid on my shawl or I’ll have to shiv you. 😉
