Pay For This And Still Respect Yourself In The Morning

Help Write Now - A writing community auction to benefit Southern storm relief. Because the April 2011 storm outbreak affected so many areas, they are donating auction proceeds to the Red Cross General Relief Fund.

You should see some of the great things up for grabs: agent critiques, signed books and ARCs, Nooks, gift cards, and an offering from Steph Perkins, who just happens to be one of my favorite YA authors, for a custom scene consisting of one written conversation of your choice between Anna and √Čtienne, the main characters of her novel ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. If you win, you’ll send her a topic, and she'll write a short scene in which Anna and √Čtienne muse upon it.

The scene will be added as a permanent “Extras” feature on stephanieperkins.com, and she'll list your name (and link to your website, if you have one) as the dedication. She will also print a copy, sign it, and mail it to you. I wish I'd won some money on the Kentucky Derby, because I would love to be able to bid on this one. I still might scrape up enough to manage it (kids, guard your piggy banks).

Did you know today is yesterday was National Doodle Day? Well, it was and the wonderful people at http://doodledayuse.org are raising money for NF, Inc., an organization dedicated to providing support to individuals and families affected by the genetic disorder, neurofibromatosis. They have a whole gallery of doodles by celebrities, authors and illustrators including David Duchovny, Neil Gaimon and Ron McFarlane. And if you have any extra cash lying around you can bid on all of these doodles through their auction site on ebay through May 23rd.

So there you go. Two chances for guilt free spending.

Have a wonderful weekend! (Not you Blogger. I'm still mad at you. Bad Blogger.)

And for those of you who voted for my little story in Cherie's Flash Fiction Blogfest, I'm sending hugs and kisses because I won! Hence that winner's badge over there in my sidebar. How cool is that?
