Pay It Forward Friday: Do the “Write” Thing for Nashville

Three generous and talented Nashville authors – Victoria Schwab, Amanda Morgan and Myra McEntire – have joined forces to help flood ravaged Nashville, Tennessee.

In Victoria Schwab’s own words:

So if you haven’t heard, Nashville, TN is in a MAJOR crisis.

On May 1st and 2nd, Nashville, Tennessee received a record amount of rain—nearly 13.5 inches.

By May 3rd, huge portions of our city were under water, including the The Grand Ole Opry, Opryland, The Nashville Symphony Hall, the downtown area, and countless homes. Families, many of whom did not have flood insurance, have lost everything. One of the hydro plants is flooded, which means we’re running short on water. Many lives have been extinguished and more bodies are being recovered each day.

Essentially, our city is drowning.

Three Nashville authors, myself included, are going to be auctioning off critiques, signed books, and more from authors, agents, editors, and other industry professionals.

I applaud these ladies for stepping up to help their beautiful city and I’ll be adding a Picture Book Peek Critique to the list of auction items – so watch for it soon.

In the meantime, bid high and bid often at Do the Write Thing for Nashville and we can rescue our reading and our writing all while we help rescue our lovely sister city, Nashville.

Thank you Victoria, Amanda and Myra.
