YOUR Character in a Wings of Fire Book! Or Have Lunch With Me! Auction Happening Now!

Hi everyone!

Remember the charity auction I mentioned in my blog post last time?  Well, now it’s LIVE and it is full of crazy exciting author-y things you could win!

For Wings of Fire fans specifically, there’s this:

A book club pizza lunch with author Tui T. Sutherland.  You bring at least one grown-up (parent or teacher) and up to 6 friends who also love to read, and you pick the place (restaurant, school, or someone’s home is fine!).  I will pay for the pizza and send you signed copies of one of my books ahead of time (your choice, as long as it’s one of the books written under my own name).  Anywhere in New England or New Jersey!

Or this!:

See your original character appear in the bestselling Wings of Fire series!  Have you made up a dragon you love and you want to see him or her become canon?  Your OC will appear in Book Ten of Wings of Fire and Tui will write them into at least one conversation with the central character.  Note: this dragon must be from one of the existing tribes of Pyrrhia (it’s OK if he/she is a hybrid), not a brand-new tribe, and his/her name has to match the naming style of that tribe and not have appeared in the series before (we can discuss it!). 

I’m super-excited about both of these — I can’t wait to see who wins!  If you’re interested, go to the site and bid now — but hurry, the auction ends on Monday night, May 2!  Only 12 days to go! 

Check out the other things up for auction, too — Dr. Who washcloths hand-knitted by Kristin Cashore!  Origami by Tom Angleberger!  Manuscript critiques and Skype visits and signed copies of Austenland and lots more!

And all the money is going to help Lifting Hands International, an organization sending much-needed donations to refugees, so you’re also making the world a better place.  🙂

Thank you, lovely readers!  More soon!
