Starting today thru March 29th, the community of Romance Writers are holding an ebay auction, Operation Auction, with batches of new items being added tomorrow and Monday.  This auction is to support a member of their community, Fatin, whose husband was killed in an act of violence.  I've copied an excerpt from the website and pasted it below.  Wanted to pass the info along in case there are some goodies in the auctions that you may be interested in bidding on and supporting the cause for Fatin and her four children.

Operation Auction

Fatin has been an integral part of the romance community for years – she owns and runs the RR@H Novel Thoughts and Book Talk blog, is an administrator of the WriteMinded loop, an author assistant and a tireless advocate for romance novels. She is also a friend to many in this community.

On Tuesday, March 8th, she lost her husband in a senseless act of violence, leaving her alone with four children. You can read more about the tragedy here: http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/9233067/

The romance community would like to rally around her. Therefore, we will be holding auctions on ebay the last week of March.
