Leave a Mark Auctions: Seeking Sponsors + Publicity Help


I mentioned this a few weeks ago, I believe, but I wanted to remind you because are a little over a week away before the Leave a Mark Auctions come back!!! Be sure to follow the blog, or bookmark the site, so you can be on top of all the auctions! If you win any of the auctions in August or September, then your money will benefit First Book. If you win any of the auctions in October, November, or December, your money will benefit The Trevor Project.

I'm hoping that the more followers I get, the more I'll be able to offer some fun giveaways too. I want to support those of you who follow, spread the word, and who bid when you can! This is all about helping charities and I hope you will join me. The blog has all the details on how things will work, as well as some information on the history of the auctions. If you are new to my blog, you might not remember these auctions, but for those that do, I hope you're excited for their return!

Sponsors: Do you have an online shop or service you want to promote? I'm offering space on the blog. I don't have set prices right now, but all of this money will help me with shipping costs since most of the authors mail the books to me to THEN send out to the winner! Since all the money the winner donates goes to the charity, that means the shipping costs come from me, so I'd love to get some help with that! If you happen to know of anyone that might be interested in this, please send them my way! You can email me here: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com and put "Auction Sponsor" in the subject line.

If you would be willing to blog about the auctions or tweet, it would mean a great deal! If you have contact with any authors who may want to donate an annotated book, please do let them know! The more, the merrier! Of course, if you ARE an author and reading this, get in touch too!

Finally, I'd be happy to do a guest post or even answer some questions about the auctions if you would post about it on your blog! I'd really like to spread the word as much as possible!

I was a bidding fiend before, so I'm glad you put this on my radar, Lauren.

Good luck!

This sounds very worthwhile. Once I'm done with this marathon book launch, I'll jump it.
