Many of you may have heard all about this endeavor, but in case you haven't, here's a brief blurb from the fabulous folks handling Operation Auction:
"Fatin has been an integral part of the romance community for years – she owns and runs the RR@H Novel Thoughts and Book Talk blog, is an administrator of the WriteMinded loop, an author assistant and a tireless advocate for romance novels. She is also a friend to many in this community.Usually, when something horrible happens, there isn't much we can do, which is why I'm very proud to be a part of Operation Auction. Productive action is right up my alley. So, I have a Mythological Messes Redux series Bag full of books and goodies, and there's also 2 day passes with authors for Authors After Dark 2011 in Philadelphia and another for the entire AAD 2012 in New Orleans amongst the many many offerings.
On Tuesday, March 8th, she lost her husband in a senseless act of violence, leaving her alone with four children. You can read more about the tragedy here: http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/9233067/
The romance community would like to rally around her. Therefore, we will be holding auctions on ebay the last week of March. More information on exact days and donations will follow."
