Dear Author and Smart Bitches are teaming up to offer an item for the Jo Leigh auction to benefit author Jo Leigh, whose husband died of cancer on 13 June 2008 (coincidentally SB Sarah’s birthday) three years after they married, and whose medical bills are astronomical. Authors, editors, and bloggers have all donated a mess of items, from books to critiques to mentoring sessions.
Our contribution is a Winter Survival Kit, including a grab bag of 25 new Romance novels, both paper and audio, plus a $30 gift certificate to Fictionwise and a $30 gift certificate to Amazon.com. The link isn’t up yet but it will be soon.
But the total list of available items is astonishing, and we’re humbly pleased to be part of a stunning expression of generosity on the part of the romance community. Bid early, bid often.
