Worldbuilders continues apace, breaking last year’s record haul for Heifer International and knocking on the door of $1 million in donations. That is breathtakingly incredible. Let’s help ’em get there, shall we?
There’s one week left in the WriMos for Worldbuilders lottery. The goal was to break $10,000 — and the drive is already well over $18,000. The generosity of writer-folk will never cease to amaze me.
Of course, Worldbuilders is making it worth your while. Each $10 donated gives you one shot at a drawing for fabulous prizes (i.e., donate $50, get five entries). There are dozens and dozens of books and assorted swag, detailed here on Pat Rothfuss’ blog, including the three books of the Daedalus trilogy, all signed and marked with “Worldbuilders 2015” to remind you of the good you did and the reward you got. Cool, eh?
Here’s a post where you can figure out your chances of winning something cool, by the way, in case you want to ensure the odds are ever in your favor.
Of course, the big prizes in the lottery are the critiques. There are four up for grabs from agent Seth Fishman, agent Jennifer Azantian, author/anthologist Joshua Palmatier and, well…me. (Don’t worry, I’m told I give good critique.) So if you finished up your NaNoWriMo project and need a trained pair of eyes to look at it, here’s your chance.
You have one week. DO WHAT MUST BE DONE.
