Blog Tour & Charity Auction: Swati Avasthi's Split and National Domestic Violence Awarenss Month
To honor National Domestic Violence Awareness month, author Swati Avasthi has combined a blog tour for her debut novel, Split, with a charity auction. Over 40 authors, agents and editors have donated manuscript critiques, personalized books, and more to an online auction that anyone –reader, writer, booklover -- can bid on and buy. All proceeds go to the Family Violence Prevention Fund.
In addition to the auction, Avasthi is donating $1/comment on her 26-stop, month-long blog tour, coordinated by Kari Olson at Teen Book Scene. If she reaches her goal and cap of $250, she will double the donation.
Follow the tour, get stuff you want, and make a difference.
Make sure to stop by this blog on October 14th for an exclusive interview with Jace, the main character of Split. I am full of nervous anticipation about this post. He's definitely one of the most realistic characters I've ever read and I have a bunch of tough questions prepared for him.
