October 12th: Jumpstart the World by Catherine Ryan Hyde Comes Out.
Jumpstart the World is an LGBT book and in honor of its release and National Coming Out Day, I am hosting a few online auctions this week. You can find the posts below. There might be one more, but I don't have full details yet, so keep an eye out.
All money from the auctions will benefit the Cincinnati chapter of GLSEN. You can learn more here.
The auctions will all end this Friday, October 15th at 11:59 P.M. EST. Please read the rules on each post...some are open to all, some aren't...and they all differ in the starting bid. They will all go up in $1 increments though. Meaning, if someone bids $10...you can bid $11 but not less than that. You can go as high as you like though.
Thanks to all the companies that donated items. We really appreciate it.
Full List of Auctions:
Bella Bejeweled Necklace
Soda Stream Pure Soda Starter Kit
2 Tickets to Classic New York Movie Sites Tour
2 Tickets to New York TV and Movie Sites Tour
If you don't wish to bid or can't, that's fine. You can always support by buying or asking your library for a copy of Jumpstart the World.
Amazon Associates: We get a small percentage if you buy from our link.
Right now though...if you bid (and you don't have to be the winner) you can enter to win a SIGNED copy of Jumpstart the World by Catherine Ryan Hyde.
Enter: Bid on something this week. Each time you bid, even if it's for the same item, you get another entry. Bid ten times? You get ten entries! If you have questions, let me know.
Again, want people to know these books are important. LGBT books should be available so please think of buying the book or getting it somehow as well, whether you bid or not, whether you win something or not.
If you want another shot at winning this book though, go here and spread the word about these auctions and the novel. This will be signed by the author as well.
Both Giveaways End Friday, October 15th as well. The Giveaway on Shooting Stars is open to ALL, while the other is open to U.S. only.
