Operation Auction

Operation AuctionLast week I learned that Fatin, better known as the tireless creator behind RR@H Novel Thoughts, lost her husband in a horrible shooting at his store. The romance community, because it is amazing, has responded by creating an auction to benefit Fatin and her children.

You can learn more about what to donate at Jaci Burton’s site, get ideas from this hella list of ideas from Larissa Ione, and get contact information for donation at the Novel Thoughts website. I’m donating something along with Jane Litte and Angela James, and if you have books, critiques, or services to add, please get in touch with any of the auction organizers.

A website has been set up with a long (and truly inspiring) list of items donated so far at OperationAuction.wordpress.com.

The auction will go live the last week of March on eBay, and details will be all over the place when the items go live. My prayers and thoughts are with Fatin, who has been part of the romance community as long as anyone can remember. May her husband’s memory be a blessing.

    I am still so sad over this. It’s wonderful to see the romance community pulling together to help, though.

    I’m humbled to be in the company of so many amazing authors, editors, publishers and fans in the romance community who are donating to this cause.

    Coming together like this is part of what makes Romanclandia so awesome.

    I’m so so sorry about this tragedy. I read the link story and her husband sounded like an amazing person.
