Read for Relief!

In case you haven't seen it, a group of fabulous authors--including Erin Bowman whose novel THE LAICOS PROJECT is fantastic! and the lovely Sarah Enni who I had the pleasure of meeting during BEA this year--are doing an auction to support the Red Cross after Hurricane Irene left a lot of devastation in her wake.

You can Donate Directly--or you can bid on a number of fabulous items up for auction.

Such as...

A critique from the brilliant Sarah Goldberg. (I know how brilliant she is, trust me.)  Her notes on manuscripts are even better than mine. Saturday 9/17 is the last day to bid.

This is amazing to see. I live in North Carolina (actually on the Outer Banks)...It's amazing how so many people have come together after so much damage.

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
