with permission of Nathan I would like to let you know about my fundraising drive for Clarion and your chance to win a free copy of the Trader's Tales or one of many other prizes in the raffle.
Right now I am fundraising for Clarion, the SciFi & Fantasy charity. I have organised a grand giveaway of prizes and have collected many donations of books and book-related items from writers and editors all over the Twittersphere, many Clarion Alumni or former Lecturers. Nathan has been very generous and given me 3 copies of his Trader's Tales books (paper or Kindle) to include in the giveaway for my sponsors.
I know all of us here are fans of Nate's work and a fair number of you will already have the book, but I hope that you'll trust that every cent donated helps a great charity that secures the future of science fiction and fantasy writing and supports the making of books we can't imagine yet. Winning a prize will be the extra icing on the cake.
For a $5 deductible donation, you are entered in the prize giveaway and can pick your favourite prize. If you pick the Trader's Tales as a prize and you win, you'll talk directly to Nate to let him know which version you want and how he can get it to you.
The list of all the prizes in the $5 giveaway is here and the donation page is here. The donation page lists more prizes you can win. For writers a free copy of Scrivener, the writer's software, would be an excellent choice. For high value donations there's even an iPad2 up for grabs!
The Clarion Write-a-Thon ends this Saturday the 6th of August. If you can be persuaded to donate for your chance to win a prize, this week is your last chance.
If you have any questions at all, please post them here or send me a DM.
Please support a great foundation and help them shape the future of Science Fiction & Fantasy!
Hope to find you well.
