Wrapping up Week 1 - Write Hope

Then again, wrapping things up sounds like we can, and we're actually still in the middle of SO MANY fantastic auctions.

What do you think of a query critique from literary agent Tina Wexler? A critique from the mysterious Authoress? A marketing consulting session from Shelli Johannes? Signed and personalized copies of Maria V. Snyder's Insider series? A collection of picture books? And Tessa Gratton is offering a first chapter critique to bidders for every $50 bid and signed copy of Blood Magic.

So far you've all come through in an amazing way. We've had bidding wars, twitter taunting, upped offers and we're raising a lot of money for Save The Children. Because in the end that's the most important thing. On the Save The Children Blog stories about how the Japan disaster is affecting the children in Japan are heart wrenching. Just have a look at Seina's story. This nine-year-old boy has been living with his mother in an evacuation center. He's lost his sister to the tsunami.

This auction is an amazing experience so far, but it's children like Seina that are the heart of it. If you can help in any way, please do.

We have so much more to come too. Signed copies or ARCs of One Hundred Candles, Eon, Riva, Moonglass, Across The Universe, Mistwood, Imaginary Girls, and many more. A partial critique and phone call with literary agent Kathleen Ortiz. A full critique by Debra Driza, followed by a full read from her agent Taylor Martindale. A story in the Kat, Incorrigible universe written especially for you. A critique by the one and only Maggie Stiefvater.

And our mystery box, which goes live on Sunday.

So bid high, bid often, and thank you, thank you, thank you. :-)
