Finally, after much plotting and planning, the auctions are LIVE. Why are we doing this? Because of a horrible situation I encountered a few weeks ago.
And because YA authors are generous and awesome, YOU get to help abused and neglected animals while getting some amazing books.
100% of the proceeds from these auctions will go to benefit the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Additionally, Carrie Ryan and Diana Peterfreund will both match the aggregate of the high bids with up to $1,000 each, to be donated to their own local animal shelters. I will be donating volunteer hours at the Humane Society of Indianapolis – 4 hours for every $100 raised by the auctions, up to $1,000.
Here are the links to the individual auctions, as well as their contents:
1) The Mortal Instruments series (City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels) by Cassandra Clare, in hardcover, each containing a signed bookplate. ALSO, Claire de Lune and Nocturne by Christine Johnson, Claire de Lune in paperback and Nocturne in hardcover, both signed.

Thank you. Really.
