October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In honor of this, starting tomorrow, Swati Avasthi, author of Split, is kicking off a month long blog tour to run all through the month of October. She has twenty-six scheduled blog stops including contests, cut scenes, and guest posts. Not only is she promoting her book- a 2010 debut for everyone participating in the Debut Challenge- but she is donating $1/comment with a goal and cap of $250. If she hits that 250, she'll double her donation.
But wait, there's more. She's had a lot of fund raising help from close to fifty agents, editors and authors who have donated personalized books, memberships, and critiques for an online auction. All proceeds are going to the Family Violence Prevention Fund.
For full tour details, including what blogs she's visiting, check out the official tour page here, including the starting line along with links to the auctions! There are some incredible ones on there, from full manuscript critiques, lots of great books to choose from, and even an ARC of Jeri Smith-Ready's Shift.
