Autographed Books, Great Cause, Early Christmas Shopping

Brockmann1 JanePorterI love, love, love autographed books–there’s just something about knowing my favorite author held and signed that book that makes it seem ten times more precious. If you’re like me, then pop on over to the auction my amazing swimmer friend Doug DePew is holding on eBay to raise money for the Navy Seal Foundation! (and hey, get that Christmas shopping done early since most of the books can be personalized!)

Doug is a seriously awesome swimmer (he competes in an annual 8-mile swim, and yes, swims all 8 miles!) and a huge supporter of the Tampa Bay community. He swims the Tampa Bay Frogman swim every January, with all proceeds going to the Navy Seal Foundation. He has committed to raising $1500 for the NSF this year, and that’s where the auction comes in–and lots of readers who love signed books like I do! 013162a48eb3fd96f067bf860a05b1d37d388aba9b

We have signed books from all your favorite romance authors as well as first editions from Lee Child, Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane, Suzanne Brockmann, Dave Barry, etc. There’s a first chapter critique from The Knight Agency, big baskets of books from Tule Publishing and others, and so much more–90+ items all together!

And the one super cool thing–a signed swim cap from Olympian Dara Torres. She’s an incredible swimmer too!

The auction only lasts 10 days so please feel free to spread the word and to bid often. I thank you, Doug thanks you and the Navy Seal Foundation thanks you too!

About the Navy Seal Foundation: Established to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) support personnel, and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation provides a comprehensive set of programs specifically designed to reduce the stressors associated with the tremendous amount of uncertainty and pressure that comes with life in Naval Special Warfare (NSW). Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there has been an unprecedented demand for Special Operations Forces around the globe. SEALs spend up to 270 days away from home each year in the most unforgiving environments and training at an unrelenting pace in order to maintain their ability to execute our nation’s toughest military missions. Their commitment to our country and the mission is only possible because of the significant personal sacrifices made by their families.
