Hurricane Sandy Relief and the Writing Community

I’m so proud to be part of such a wonderful, giving group as the writing community! Hurricane Sandy not only ravaged the east coast, but also greatly impacted one of my awesome critique partners, Jeannie Anaya. While she and her family are okay, her house was flooded and she says it’s like apocalypse central where she lives.

I’ve been sitting here on the west coast trying to figure out how I can help. And then I see on Twitter TWO writers who are having auctions for the relief of the Sandy victims:

Kate Messner


Jen Malone

Check them out! They have many, many awesome auction items, including query critiques, manuscript critiques, ARCs, etc.

Bid and be generous! And if you try to out-bid me, well, I guess Sandy Relief will benefit!

May the victims of Sandy know that our thoughts, hearts and prayers are with you, and that we’re looking for ways to help and support you.

Happy Writing!

  1. New subscriber here…Just wanted to say congratulations for winning Jessica S.’s auction item. I was also eying that. I bidded and won another item instead. It’s a great feeling to win, isn’t it!

  2. Hi Cynthia! Thanks for coming over and taking a look. 🙂 I’m VERY excited to have won Jessica S’s crit! And scared to death. Which item did you win? And yes, it is wonderful to be able to help with the Sandy Relief effort. One of my CPs was – and still is – impacted by the storm.

  3. I won a critique from one of the editors. I’ve been hearing stories and seeing images of Sandy- it’s sad and scary all at the same time, and I’m really hoping that the people affected by this will pull through.
