Dear Readers and Jani Boosters!
I have been authorized by Crown Publishers to offer those waiting for January First to be published in August a rare opportunity to receive an autographed copy of a pre-release uncorrected “proof” or galley. This is a collector’s item as this version of the book will never be available to the public. I am holding an auction to benefit some families with mentally ill children on the Jani Foundation Facebook page who are facing eviction and the winner(s) get a pre-release galley personally autographed by me and mailed to you, free of charge, anywhere in the world.
And here is the Ebay link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270969909169
For the first time on this page, as a donor you can get something in return for your donation: a once in a lifetime collector’s item and a change to read the book three months before it is released.
The auction will be open for the next seven days.
Update 5/4/12: Anyone who makes a donation of $400 to via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or by purchasing on Ebay at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270971171489#ht_542wt_1185, I will mail you (free shipping) a copy of a pre-release galley of my book January First, personally autographed by both me, Michael Schofield, and Jani. When you make the donation, just include whom you would like the book addressed to and an address. Limit 5 available at this price for a version of the book that will not be available to public, signed by me and Jani. The proceeds will be split three ways between us and two other families with MI children facing eviction (information) at www.facebook.com/janifoundation. Hurry! Only 5 available at this price!
