Several Nashville-based authors are putting together an auction to raise funds for people affected by the flooding in middle Tennessee. They're looking for authors, agents and editors to donate auction items. If you can donate, check out their site (http://dothewritethingfornashville.blogspot.com/) for contact info-- or keep an eye out for some great items to bid on in a few days!

You can also find them on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Do-the-Write-Thing-for-Nashville/118857448143357). Funds will benefit the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (http://www.cfmt.org/floodrelief/).

I have friends and family in Nashville, but I'm also tapped out on giving to general relief funds.

I'm very excited about this. I'll probably wait until the last days to bid, since my monies are limited.

There are updates at the website. Go back and check, but if you have a kind bone in your body, leave a comment and don't email. It sounds like they may still be reading through their emails in the year 2020.
