Auction for a Good Cause

Author Jo Leigh lost her husband this summer, and is sinking under the weight of the medical bills left behind. (More here.)

Some of her friends have organized an auction to help, with many great things on offer for readers and writers.

If you click on the icon, above, you'll get to more information on the auction.

A group of my fellow '007 Golden Heart classmates and I are offering multiple critiques of 55 pages of either an historical or a contemporary romance. Great deal, as you get more than one detailed critique, if you make the winning bid on one of these items. That is, the entire list of us will each provide a critique. 5 opinions on the historical and 6 on the contemporary. (The contemporary auction isn't up on eBay yet. More items will be added over the next few days.)

Of course, there are also editors and agents and other authors offering critiques, too. But just think... ours is five in one!

Buy yourself a Christmas present. Get one for your friends. Send your hubby to the site to buy something for you. :-)

Wow! I checked out the auction, and I'm stunned at the generosity offered up there. Such good prizes, and for a good cause, too. Now I just need to decide what to bid on. Thank so for the link. :-)

This is a good cause. Thanks Maureen.

It's so cool for people to offer such awesome prizes. Hopefully they'll raise loads of money.

Hi Maureen
I'm planning to bid. How'd you get on 'historical' detail? Is this a new direction your writing is taking?

I thought it was kind of funny I ended up on Historical detail, too... but I think I told the person organizing I'd do anything but inspirational. I figure two of my CP's write historicals (Michele and Sinead) so I do have lots of experience in the genre, even if I don't write it.
