Literary Lovefest is the creation of authors Sharon Johnston and Em Shotwell to raise funds for people in need through online auctions. The writing community is so generous, and this is just another example of that.
The first Literary Lovefest auction is underway!
In August, parts of Louisiana were flooded. Some people lost everything. It broke my heart when I saw the pictures. Em lived in one of those areas and, though her home didn't flood, she knows many people affected. Clean up efforts are still on going to help the victims.
For their first auction, Sharon and Em have chosen the Baton Rouge area Habitat for Humanity as their recipient.
So, what's up for grabs?
Thirty-five items are up for bids. This included critiques of query letters, manuscripts, etc., marketing advice, consultations, and books.
Check it out. All money goes to a great cause.
The auction is open until Saturday, September 17, 2016. Click here to check it out. To bid, just write your bid amount in the comments under the items you're interested in. Make sure it's higher than the last posted bid.
This is a great opportunity to pick up something that may help you with your writing or a bundle of new books!
If you miss out this time, keep an eye on these generous ladies as I'm sure they will host more auctions in the near future!
