Help Write Now is a writing community auction to benefit Southern storm relief. What this means is that authors, bloggers, editors, agents, and others have made donations--either of items or of their time--and the proceeds from these donations will be added to the Red Cross's general disaster relief fund.
Each day, new donated items are listed. They are on day 8 right now and there are lots of great choices for writers and readers alike! I've offered up a signed and personalized copy of Freefall. Bidding for this item started this morning and will be open for three days.
I've also spotted lots of signed books, new ARCs, Skype interviews, manuscript critiques, and artwork. The link to the full auction is here, and you can click the tabs to learn more about who is running things and how it all works. So check it out! Maybe you'll find a great gift for someone else or for yourself!
