How can you help young readers?

NaNoWriMo is here once again. To be more specific, Camp NaNo...which is the same basic idea as the annual event that many of us partake in every November. This year I am once again embarking on the optional fundraiser with a FUNDRAISER PAGE (click on those words and you will be wisked away)! My goal is lofty...$1000! In their words,here is the mission statement of The Office of Letters & Light: 

The Office of Letters and Light organizes events where children and adults find the inspiration, encouragement, and structure they need to achieve their creative potential. Our programs are web-enabled challenges with vibrant real-world components, designed to foster self-expression while building community on local and global levels.

So, here is where I bribe you. Every single person who donates any amount (unless they state preferences to the contrary) will be named in the dedication of the novel that I am writing for Camp NaNo, Book 5 of the Zomblog series--Zomblog: Snoe's War. But that is not all, if you donate and then comment on this blog (any entry will do from this date rush) by telling me "Hero" or "Villain", then you will be a star in Book 7 of the DEAD series of your very own vignette. A character will be named in your honor...thus you secure your place as an immortal to live through history in a story read by millions (or at least thousands).

Not enough? about any book from the MDP catalog (if it is one of mine, it will be signed personally. If you donate any amount over $25, you simply comment on the blog what title you would like and it is yours.

More? Okay...this one is tricky. Anybody who donates $100 has an open invitation (I just need a one week head's up) for a round of golf with me (my treat) where you are welcome to mock me for 9 holes of one-on-one time where we can talk about whatever interests doesn't even have to be zombies. The catch is that you will have to either reside in or be visiting the Portland, Oregon region.

All of these offers are now on the table for any and all individuals.* 

*Golf prize only valid for individuals 18 years or older.


  1. I have a young author in my household my 12 year old. Where to I sign up?

  2. I'd love to see what you could make of a 67 year old grandma as a Hero. Hehe x
