BE HERE NOW: A Writer's Auction to Raise Funds for Andy Whitfield's Documentary about Cancer Awareness

(Source)
Guys, as an Aussie writer, today I'm doing a shout-out for "Be Here Now," a writers' auction to raise funds for the completion of actor Andy Whitfield's documentary promoting cancer awareness. YA Writer Kathy Bradey, who is repped by Suzie Townsend, is heading up an auction starting this Wednesday where you can win query and manuscript critiques. More details will be on her blog, so please visit her for all the up-to-date info, but here's a quick rundown:

What is "BE HERE NOW?"


Be Here Now” is an inspiring documentary about the actor Andy Whitfield, who put the same determination and dedication that he brought to his lead role in the hit television show, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” into fighting life-threatening cancer.

It was Andy’s hope that by opening his story up to a documentary, he might help or inspire others facing similar challenges, while pushing to accelerate the pace of cancer research around the world.
When Andy was told his lymphoma had returned and that without treatment he had 3 – 6 months to live, he was compelled to share his exploration into the unknown. He selflessly invited a film crew into our lives, who followed us through out the last year of Andy’s magnificent and courageous journey. We now need your support to finish the documentary and fulfill Andy’s legacy. ~ Vashti Whitfield 



What are "BE HERE NOW" Critiques?


“Be Here Now” needs funding for additional filming and editing, else the documentary will not be completed.

As a writer/fan of Andy Whitfield/despiser of cancer, Kathy Bradey has rallied together some wonderfully generous authors to offer various manuscript, chapter and query critiques in exchange for your pledge/donation to the “Be Here Now” Kickstarter campaign.

Writers participating so far:


Debra Driza
Laura Tims
Michelle Painchaud
E.K. Henry
Kathy Bradey
Mindee Arnett
Melanie Santiago
Angie Spartz
Rachael Allen
Beth Light
Susanne Winnacker
Kaitlin Ward
Jenn Walkup
Kara Taylor
Dawn Rae Miller
Stephanie Kuehn
Rebecca Rogers
Lori Lee

When does it start?


The first round of auction items will be posted on WEDNESDAY, 13TH JUNE (Sydney, Australia time) on Kathy’s blog.

Important Details


• The minimum bid is $1.00.
• Once winners have been confirmed, they must pledge their winning amount to Kickstarter within one week of winning their auction item. Please note: A pledge is not a payment. It is a promise of payment.
• THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!
As per the rules of Kickstarter, you will NOT have to pay any money (even after you have pledged) unless the “Be Here Now” funding goal is met within the specified timeframe. Let me say that again. IF THE FUNDING GOAL IS NOT MET WITHIN THE TIMEFRAME, YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED YOUR PLEDGED AMOUNT. Unfortunately this also means that you will only receive your auction item if the funding goal is met. However, with a funding goal of $200,000 and $37,000 already pledged in 2 days (with 43 days to go), you can make up your own mind whether or not to participate.
• If the funding goal is met, your credit card will be charged on Monday Jul 23, 4:04pm EDT. You must send Kathy the confirmation e-mail sent by Amazon Payments as a record of donation to receive your critique.

If you would like to pledge without partaking in the auction, do so here.

Thank you for your interest and support! Please retweet, blog, spread the word!

++

I hope to see you all over at Kathy's blog on Wednesday for the start of bidding :)
