The Virgin Islands. St. Martin. Anguilla, so many other islands, and now Florida. The devastation is heartbreaking. Two weeks ago the JAFF community came together and amazed us with their generous donations for Hurricane Harvey relief. Now it’s Hurricane Irma’s turn. We hope you’ll join us in our JAFF Fundraiser: The Sequel for Hurricane Irma relief. We’re back with more of our popular cameos, and we’re also offering incentives for donations.
Incentives: Make a $5 donation and get a free advance e-copy of the new Austen Variations anthology, Persuasion: Behind the Scenes. Donate $10 and we’ll throw in Pride & Prejudice: Behind the Scenes. Donations can be made at Crowdrise (Americares) and or to the British Red Cross Irma Appeal at JustGiving. Be sure to give the email address you want us to use to send you your ebook. (and yes, if you’ve already donated, this is valid retroactively. Just leave a comment that you want it.)
