Leave a Mark: Authors Mark Up Books for Charity!

Awesome bloggers Chelsea and Lauren have teamed up to create Leave a Mark, a blog that's hosting different authors all month who have agreed to mark up a copy of their books and auction them off for charity.

That means the authors scribble in the margins--everything from what inspired a character name to how a scene came about. Cool, right? And what a great holiday gift for a readergirl!

Today through Sunday, my latest book, Lovestruck Summer, is up for auction. I promise to fill it with fun stories about the writing process and music that helped me along!

Remember, all proceeds go to charity, and there are more fantastic authors' marked-up books coming up, so follow Leave a Mark to keep up with the auctions. Happy bidding!
