Authors Sharon Johnston and Em Shotwell have started a wonderful project to benefit those impacted by the devastating floods in Louisiana. This is a charity auction where you can bid on book bundles, manuscript critiques, query feedback, signed books and more—all proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity to help rebuild damaged homes in Louisiana.
The auction is live now at literarylovefest.wordpress.com and ends on September 17, 2016.
World Weaver Press has donated some books to the Speculative Fiction Super Book Bundle and the Romance Super Book Bundle. Additionally, you can bid on a romance manuscript critique from WWP Assistant Editor Cori Vidae, or a line edit from WWP Assistant Editor and Anthologist Rhonda Parrish. But there are so many more great literary items you can bid on to help this cause. Go to literarylovefest.wordpress.com now to see everything up for auction.

LITERARY LOVEFEST FOR LOUISIANA
Dates: September 11, 2016- September 17, 2016
Our first auction/fundraiser will benefit the flood victims of south Louisiana. Em Shotwell lives in an area that was badly affected. Though she was lucky and her home did not flood, many homes, businesses, schools, animal shelters, nursing homes, and health care facilities were devastated. Emergency shelters sprang up wherever there was room, and people scrambled to meet the needs of neighbors and strangers alike. It will be many, many months before a great number of people will be able to rebuild their homes and lives.
Literary Lovefest has chosen the Baton Rouge area Habitat For Humanity as the recipient of the funds raised. They have been on the front lines, helping people to gut, dry, and de-mold their homes, focusing on those without flood insurance, as well as those unable to help themselves, or without the money to pay a contractor. We chose this organization specifically because their work is witnessed first hand in the community. You can find out more about them, and make a donation right HERE.
