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.

For more information about this tour, visit Teen Book Scene.

  1. Great cause. Speaking from person experience, domestic violence is a devastation that is difficult to rebound from. Women's shelters take women in and attempt to help them get back their lives, all of which takes money. Thanks for supporting this worthwhile cause.
