Split Blog Tour and Auction Announcement

Throughout the month of October the book Split by Swati Avasthi is going to be on blog tour, but it's not an ordinary tour: each stop will have an auction to raise money for the Domestic Violence Organization and for every comment received while on the tour Swati will donate $1.

Here's an official blurb:
To honor National Domestic Violence Awareness month, author Swati Avasthi has combined a blog tour for her debut novel, Split, with a charity auction. Over 40 authors, agents and editors have donated manuscript critiques, personalized books, and more to an online auction that anyone –reader, writer, booklover -- can bid on and buy.  All proceeds go to the Family Violence Prevention Fund. In addition to the auction, Avasthi is donating $1/comment on her 26-stop, month-long blog tour, coordinated by Kari Olson at Teen Book Scene. If she reaches her goal and cap of $250, she will double the donation.  Follow the tour, get stuff you want, and make a difference.

My stop is scheduled for October 19th, so if you're at all interested in helping out this charity please stop by! It's as easy as leaving a comment!

If you want to follow the tour or want more information please visit the Teen Book Scene Tour Details page.


  1. This is a great cause, and I'm definitely dying to read this :)

  2. This is on my wish list, and what a great idea to support a cause.


Your comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, keep them coming!
