(AUTHORS: It is not too late to donate or do a write-up for a charity. Anything that says introduction TBA is available. If there is something already taken that you wish to do a write-up on, just let me know, we can fit it in. DONATE BOOKS or SWAG: It's not too late! Up until May 4th I'll be taking donations and placing books & swag with charities. If you want to ADD A CHARITY: You must be willing to do a write-up. Thank you so much to those who already donated and please don't forget to send me your links to your website and/or blog so I can promote you. I love all you generous, kind, people. Thank you, thank you, thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org )
Beginning May 6th and lasting until June 1st, romance and erotic authors from all types of venues (print, Ebook, indie) are coming together to help bring awareness to conditions that affect us all. The human spirit is such a beautiful thing to witness, and I’d like to thank everyone who helped pull this together. Authors who donated books, swag, and even their time to do write-ups—you are pure souls, and I am humbled by your generosity.
Giveaway rules and participation: Each day a cause of a human condition is highlighted. There will be a discussion and a link to the chosen charity for donation. Participants do NOT need to donate to win the giveaway…though I hope you do. ;) Simply add your thoughts to the comments and you will be eligible. (The authors and myself would appreciate guests forwarding the link to their friends and family for further exposure/awareness, as that is the reason for these giveaways and every little bit helps.) The winners will be announced on the next awareness blog below the charity link for that day’s blog. The only exception is the May 31st blog. The winner on that day will be announced on the June 1st blog, which will round up the May events.
