There are few people in the writing world who have helped me navigate this journey toward publication like Carrie Harris. If you’re not familiar with Carrie, she writes goofball YA monster books and runs a riot of a blog. She’s the president of the Class of 2k11 and has been both peer and mentor to me.
Her zombie book, BAD TASTE IN BOYS, debuts next week. Along with her debut, she’s running an auction called Night of the Giving Dead.
Here’s what she has to say about the event:
I’m doing an online auction in July to benefit the Giving Library at the University of Michigan children’s hospital. My husband’s a cancer survivor…and now he’s a pediatric oncologist. He works with the doctors that saved his life.
The hospital gives out books to every inpatient kid, and I want to collect books and money to buy more. You can read more about the program here.
Things are gearing up over at Carrie’s place. All sorts of writers are donating books, swag, and critiques*. The benefit starts today and runs through 25 July. Stop by!
*I’m donating a ten-page verse novel or middle grade critique or a full picture book critique.

Sounds really cool – I’ll have to check it out. I love the cover of Carrie’s book.
That sounds awesome! I’m going to check it out right now.
And how are you, my friend? It’s been ages since we’ve talked. I love seeing your book cover and I can’t wait to buy a real copy. 🙂

Carrie, you are one-of-a-kind special (and spell your name so nicely).
Mary, the cover is fun, isn’t it? The book is hilarious. Believe me when I say there are certain odors Carrie mentions that you’ll NEVER be able to get out of your mind.
Natalie, so glad to see you! I’ve missed you around these parts. Looking forward to reading that marvelous ms. I know you’ve been working on.
sooo excited for Carrie! I totally agree w/ her “Carrie World Takeover” idea. hmm…
