Just wanted to repost an article we’ve put up on AuthorScoop to draw attention to a worthy cause (that looks like fun, too!)
As most of our US readership has learned by now, last week’s storms were utterly devastating to Nashville and the whole of central Tennessee. While Nashville is often automatically linked to the Country Music scene, it also has a rich literary history and a thriving current Arts’ community.
AuthorScoop has quite a few Nashville-based friends and it’s home to my favorite annual Literary Conference, Killer Nashville. So our thoughts and hopes go out to everyone suffering the lingering effects of this disaster.
But we can do one better.
Victoria Schwab, Amanda Morgan, and Myra McEntire have mobilized and established, DO THE WRITE THING FOR NASHVILLE, a online auction by, for, and with authors all over the country to benefit The Community Foundation for Middle Tennessee.
The bidding has begun on exclusive signed ARCs of upcoming releases, author-signed books, collector’s items, handmade goods, and writerly advice from experts in the form of phone calls, critiques, query letter reviews, and peptalks.
Get yours today! And spare a thought for Nashville’s speedy recovery.
I’ll see you in August, my friends.
