Auction of Original Sinners books

One of my very best friends on this earth is in the process of raising money to go on a Bible Study trip to Israel next year. The total cost of the trip, including airfare is almost $4,000. She has dreamed about traveling to Israel and studying and walking where Jesus walked and taught pretty much since I’ve known her, and I’m sure it was in her heart long before then. The Bible Study is a 14-week long study, with the final 2 weeks taking place in Israel. She has a number of fund raising ideas, and her first fundraising endeavor is a yard sale the first weekend in August. While I’m donating many of my books (almost 500), clothes and shoes to her yard sale, and am giving her money to help with her trip, I just felt like I needed to try to help her in a bigger way.

I decided I would get in touch with Tiffany Reisz and see if she would be okay with me auctioning off a set of her Original Sinners books. I know authors can’t always travel to their readers, so this is a chance to get a set of her signed books to one reader. She gave me the okay and I’ve bought the books and will be taking them to her Lexington, KY signing on August 3. So my auction to help my friend Melissa get to Israel next year is signed copies of The Siren, The Angel, The Prince, and The Mistress. I know there are many readers of Tiffany’s books that would love to own a signed set of these books and want to help my friend out as much as possible. I’m not sure I can say thank you enough times to Tiffany for helping my friend Melissa out by allowing me to auction off a set of her books.

The bidding for the auction will run from July 21, 2013 (Sunday) to July 28, 2013 (Sunday).  I will notify the winner on July 28, 2013. Please include your email address with your bids in your comment so I can contact the winner at the end of the auction. Payment will need to be made via Pay Pal, and I will cover shipping cost to the winner of the auction. Payment must be received before I travel to the Lexington signing to get the books signed to an individual. I’ll ship the books to the winner On August 7.
