New Zealand Earthquake Relief Effort

Margot Kinberg over at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist is Doing the Write Thing. And it's a great idea.

Margot's putting together a charity raffle to help out the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake relief efforts. She's looking for authors who are willing to donate signed copies of their books to support the cause.  In her words...

If you are an author who’d like to donate a signed copy of one of your books, please email me at MargotKinberg(at)gmail(dot)com) and let me know that you’d like to be a part of Do the Write Thing and which title you’d like to contribute. Your donation will be greatly appreciated!! If you've already been in touch, thank you! I truly appreciate it.
Margot says ...
Once the list of authors and titles is final, I’ll announce the “book packages.” You’ll then have the opportunity to win one of them. How do you get into the raffle? All we’ll ask is that you make a donation to the New Zealand Red Cross. Once you do that, you’ll be entered into the raffle, and you will have a chance to win a “book package” of terrific reads by very talented authors.

I've already emailed her and offered to donate a copy of Sliding on the Edge. If you can help, please contact her ASAP. Thanks. 


  1. I think this is a wonderful raffle that Margot is putting together. It's also amazing all the writers coming together to help.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
