I'm sure you all reading this have heard of the flooding going on in the Calgary area right now. One of the writers in our wonderful twitter writer community, Tamara Mataya, has been effected by this flooding and her CP Jessa Russo has put together an array of auctions to help Tamara and her family cope with this difficult situation. Check out Jessa's website to see all of the listings.
You can bid here to win an anime-style character portrait by yours truly.
You can also bid here to win a FULL MS crit from the infamous beta Marieke Nijkamp.
And you can bid here to win a three chapter crit from my idol and BFF the brilliant Kat Ellis.
This writing community is welcoming, friendly, supportive, fun, sexy, smart, and I am so proud of everyone who is willing to reach out a helping hand to one of us in a time of need.

Today my interview went up on DiversifYA. You can go check it out here. Be sure to check out the other interviews too. There are ones about sexual identity, racial/ethnic identity, living with mental illness and living with disabilities. Their hope is that by showing many different perspectives, YA authors will muster the courage to include more diverse characters in their YA novels. A worthy effort indeed. :)
