In light of the recent terrible flooding in Tennessee, I'm trying to Do The Write Thing For Nashville by donating an item, and it's up for auction RIGHT NOW, for three days only.
I'm offering the following (to bid, you need to go to the above link and leave a comment with your offer):
Lunch! For you and up to three of your besties. With yours truly. I'll fly to your city and meet you for lunch and we can talk about books and publishing and agents or we can just hang out and chat about peanut butter and pork butt (not together, eww!) and Miss Spoobin.
Speaking of Miss Spoobin, the winning bid gets to take her home! And each person at the lunch will get a signed copy of GONE.
How's that for fun? Get your group of friends together, pool your moolah, and bid! Or buy it as a surprise for your teen or librarian or teacher or BFF or spouse.
And please check out all the other very cool items up for bid, too -- lots of awesome stuff in all price ranges, and it's all for a great cause!
