From Blogger Karen Scott


Hi Guys
First of all, I'd like to thank everybody who has so far donated to Sharon Cullar's Chip In fundraiser. In two weeks we've managed to raise over $1500, which is fabulous. So thanks loads for that.

Unfortunately, we're a little off the target that Sharon needs to help her stay in her home, so some of Sharon's fellow authors are organising an E-bay Auction to help raise the rest of the funds required.

With this in mind, we need freebies from bloggers, authors, editors, publishers, web designers, etc, so if you have items you can donate - books or book baskets/collections, critiques, ARCs of upcoming releases, review spreads, mentoring opportunities, web or promotional material design work etc., please email the item description either to myself, at, or to author, Roslyn Holcomb at

All the items donated will be added to the auction that will be taking place from Monday 19th January on the For Sharon website, which can be found here: As a small way of thanking you for your generosity, all donors will be listed on the website, with links to your own sites. You guys have been amazing so far, and I think it would be fantastic if we could help Ms Cullars keep her home. If any of you still want to donate to the Chip In Fund, you can do so here.

All donations will be gratefully received. For those who have nothing to donate, don't worry, you can aid us, by helping to spread the word on your respective blogs. And for those of you, who may not be aware of Sharon's story, here are the relevant links:
I'm very aware that Sharon isn't the only person who's struggling, during this economical downturn, but I'd like to help in any way I can, and I'm hoping that some of you feel the same way too.

Thanks very much for taking the time to read this e-mail, and I'm very hopeful, that we can make this happen for Sharon.

Yours sincerely,
Karen Scott
