Congrats to my winners: Natasha, Marcela and Jo-Anne! I’m thrilled to announce we’ve raised $275 for the Graffiti Gallery!
Winners, I’ll be in touch!
Today is December 6th, and as some eagle-eyed readers might know, that’s Secret McQueen’s birthday!
As a fun way to celebrate, I wanted to have an auction to raise money for a local charity I feel really strongly about. The Graffiti Gallery is an awesome group in Winnipeg who provide a safe environment for kids in high risk neighbourhoods. They promote the arts, and their presence in these tough areas has actually had a direct positive impact on bringing families in and driving gangs out.
The reason I’ve selected The Graffiti Gallery is that any money raised from the auction will show a direct and immediate impact for the group. Money raised can provide much needed supplies to help with the art programs, and I love the idea that the funds we raise through the auction will help straight away.
So here’s what I’m auctioning:
Auction A – 1 complete set of signed paperbacks: Something Secret this way Comes; A Bloody Good Secret, Deep Dark Secret, Keeping Secret, Grave Secret, Autumn, and Winter (I will ship these in January, upon receiving my copies of Grave Secret and Winter)
Current Bid – $85 (Natasha)
Auction B – A name of your choice (within reason, I won’t put in anything offensive) in the FINAL Secret McQueen novel.
Current Bid – $90 (Marcela)
Auction C – Your name as the love interest in Nolan’s novella (which I’ll be writing next year)
Current Bid – $100 (Jo-Anne)
As an added bonus, anyone who feels they can’t afford these auctions, but donates $10 or more to the Graffiti Gallery will receive a eBook of their choice.
So how do you bid?
Easy – just leave a comment with which auction you want, and how much you want to bid. All auctions start at $20. If you’re uncomfortable posting the amount you’d like to bid, email me directly HERE and I’ll update the highest bid.
If you do a direct donation, forward me a copy of your donation confirmation, and tell me which book you’re interested in. (This includes Chasing Kings and Perfect Catch).
The auction will close on December 13 at midnight CST.
Thanks for your support! Happy bidding.
