New Auctions!


Well...sort of. The Leave a Mark auctions aren't back, but there are some other auctions I'm involved in with Kristi of The Story Siren called TLC Auctions. All the proceeds benefit two very deserving people. If you bid, you'll be able to feel an even greater part of their recovery...as both of them could really use the extra monetary help for future surgeries, medical and other expenses.

A new auction goes live almost every day and another one ends almost every day...so you don't want to miss out. Please please please follow the blog or post about this on your own. We could really use the help spreading the word. The auctions just get bigger...we'd like to know lots of people know they can even bid!

Last Auction: Room by Emma Donoghue


Room by Emma Donoghue is our next auction and the last one for 2010. Thank you to everyone that bidded and/or donated this year. We do hope to continue doing this, so if you have suggestions of authors you want to see next year or are an author yourself, get in touch!

As for Room...we thought we would go out with a bang and have one of the biggest books of 2010 be our last for the year. To learn more about the book or author, please go here.


Welcome back to the Leave a Mark auctions. For those that don't remember or haven't taken part in the past, here are some basic rules. If you have any further questions please email me here: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com.

Leave a Mark Auctions brought to you by Lauren of Shooting Stars Mag and Chelsea of The Page Flipper!

Rules-

1. The first bid must start at $10 for every single book.

2. You are then allowed to go up in 50 cent increments. Ex. 10, 10.50, 11. You CAN go up more than though. Ex. first bid is 15...you go up to 20, etc. Again, any questions, let me know!

3. The deadline for each auction might vary... so please read when it will end so you don't miss out on bidding the highest! For the most part, there will be a new auction every one to two weeks.

4. You can be from any country to bid, but the bids WILL be in U.S. dollars.

5. All money will go to First Book and you can find us here: http://www.firstbook.org/leaveamark

6. Once the auction ends, we will get in touch with the highest bidder (so please leave a contact email if you can or check back to this site and we'll post the winner) and you will donate your money here and we'll have your book sent out!

Marked Up Books-

A marked up book is a regular book you would get in stores but instead of it being plain, the author went through and made notes in the margin...giving the winner of these books an inside, behind-the-scenes look of the story. It's essentially a directors-cut. You know you want these!!


This Auction Ends at 11:59 EST on Wednesday, December 22!!
