I'm back! *waves* My blog break was a little longer than I'd planned, but I'm refreshed and ready to catch up with all your blogs!
Speaking of blogs, I happen to know today is the launch of Read for Relief.
Read for Relief has been set up by a awesome east coast writers Erin Bowman, Caroline Richmond, Traci Neithercott, and Sarah Enni. Their aim is to help communities devastated by Hurricane Irene.
How? With an auction for some fantabulous items like:
- Query critiques from agents (Jim McCarthy, Joanna Volpe, and Sara Crowe, to name a few)
- Partial critiques from editors (like HarperTeen editor Erica Sussman)
- Group critiques (the gals of YA Highway are offering a great one!)
- Signed ARCs (like LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR by Stephanie Perkins and BORN WICKED by Jessica Spotswood)
- Signed first edition hardcovers (like ASHFALL by Mike Mullin and VARIANT by Robison Wells)
- And much, much more!
And Operation Awesome are donating to the cause. How? All seven of us are donating a thirty-page critique as an auction item. Want to know more? Want to bid? Donate? Head over to Read for Relief.
So how was your summer?
