This past weekend, a dear acquaintance of mine, Faith Hochhalter, ran Project Book Babe, where authors such as YA authors Stephenie Meyer and Janette Rallison attended. Tickets–at a cost of $300 in some cases–were sold out in minutes. At the event, the epilogue to Meyer’s never-published Forever Dawn was auctioned ($5,100), as well as lunch with Meyer herself ($6,500). All proceeds went to Hochhalter, who was uninsured when she found out she had breast cancer.
Hochhalter is credited for helping Meyer launch her career when Hochhalter spread unbelieveable word of mouth about Twilight when she was a book buyer for Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, AZ.
Lots of warm fuzzies going Faith’s way!
