If you follow me and/or other YA authors on Twitter, you probably know all about the YA for NJ charity auction going on. A bunch of us have donated some stuff–books, critiques, your name in a story, for example–so that you can get great collectible YA-ish things and also help out victims of Hurricane Sandy. The proceeds of this auction are going to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
Winning an item in this auction will kind of make you exactly like Bruce Springsteen.
There’s a signed Advance Reader Copy of The Lucy Variations on the table, and I’m gonna tell you what: I’m throwing in a CD of the playlist that, as you will find out when you read the book, is part of the story. I can’t add that bit of info to the listing, but you read it here.
There’s also a signed paperback of How to Save a Life available! And hey guess what. Another CD of songs related to the story.
Do a good deed, get a good book. At least, there are people out there who say these books are good. Such as this blogger who has posted an early review of Lucy and opines: “Zarr’s best and strongest to date.” And How to Save a Life made the UK Independent’s top teen fiction for 2012 (in the UK, it’s a 2012 book), as well as a bunch of lists last year here in the states.
Go bid on stuff! Any stuff that catches your fancy! Turn your reading passion into food for people in need. Thank you.
