Happy Thursday Peeps! I am interrupting our regularly scheduled Thursday "Character" post (which will be up tomorrow!) to let you know about a fantastic charity benefit that Tangled Up In Words is participating in!
Read for Relief is an online charity auction run by a group of wonderful MG/YA authors to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Irene. They have facilitated an incredible group of donors from the writing community and are auctioning off critiques (from MAJOR editor, agents, and writers!), books, ARCs, and MUCH more!
Where I live in Maryland we were very lucky when Hurricane Irene passed through. Aside from a lot of wind and rain, there was no real damage. I am very grateful that my house didn't even lose power (though we have a mini-leak in the basement, but not bad)! But this was not the case for many people all up and down the east coast and that is why we are so excited to be able to participate in donating to such a great cause. It's awesome to be joining such a great group of people from the writing community who are coming together to offer aid to those in need (Both the item donors and the bidders!).
Tangled Up in Words is donating a 30-page (or 3 chapter) critique. This is a group critique so you will get notes from at least four of the five Tangled girls AND our fabulous RPA, Jennifer L. Armentrout! All proceeds will go toward the Red Cross to assist in providing Hurricane Irene relief. Our item goes up TOMORROW and you have until Sunday at 10pm to bid. We'll update with you with a direct link as soon as we have it. Update: Here's our item!!!
