Raymond E. Feist  SAN DIEGO, CA
A young artist/writer I know is very talented but has some health issues that keep her from reaching her potential.   I'm seeing if maybe we can all chip in a little and help her grow.   If  you can help a little or a lot it will be appreciated.  If you choose to give anonymously, fine, but if you leave your email I will be offering some small incentives.  I will be randomly picking emails and will contact the donors and should they choose, I'll send them an autographed copy of one of my books (don't know which, as I've got boxes in the garrage; but they're all hardbacks).   If we reach or exceed the goal, I'll pick someone at random to recive an autographed 1st Edition of Magician, my first novel!    This is not a lottery or auction, but simply my way of saying thank you for your generosity.

Last weekend, so I'll revisit an offer. If you contribute $25 (US & Canada) or $35 international, I'll grab a random paperback and sign it. Be sure to put your address in the comments box.

Anyway I'll also send along a random hardcover if you donate $100 or more, first edition with signature. This incentive is good until 12:00 AM Monday.

No matter how much you've contributed, large or small, thank you very much. The help is deeply appreciated.

With less than two weeks, we're doing OK, over 60% of target. I want to thank everyone who's so generously donated so far.

Thanks to everyone who contributed during the weekend. I'll be double checking that I have names and addresses of those getting books. I may repeat the offer next weekend. At this point it appears we are well on our way. The campaign will end when we hit our goal or the end of the month, whichever comes first!

Friday and with mailers finally here, more books are on their way.

It's random, but for the weekend I'll make this offer. Anyone who donates $25 ($35 if I have to ship overseas) or more will get a randomly selected book, and I mean random. Until I open the box, I'm not even certain if it's going to be in English! I have some Dutch, French, and German volumes mixed in. All will be autographed. This extra incentive stops at 6pm Sunday PST.

Been a fan since the mid 1980s, I love all things Midkemian. You've been a joy most of my life. I have shared your books many times to benefit humanity. Faerie Tale is one of my favorite reads. I hope she gets well soon- I will add her to the list, prayers and good vibes from Texas- Jimmy Johnson 6008 Yolanda dr. Fort Worth Tx,76112

Glad to help - very good of you to promote this and offer some wonderful incentives as well! Hoping the goal is exceeded and that this young writer's plot twist lands them in a pleasant landscape. (Mailing address is PO Box 263, Lockeport, NS, Canada, B0T 1L0). Thanks again!

"The Dude abides" you cannot know how much I respect you for doing this. Ive already donated but everytime I see the updates it makes me smile. The respect you not only for the fact that your writing is amazing but for the fact that your a real person. I enjoy watching your interviews and reading your blogs because your such an uncompromising crotchety old bugger (please dont take offense) Supporting young talent not only ensures the next generation of Feist,Jordan,Gemmel it also inspires people who are not quite sure if they should actually attempt to become writers to actually jump in the deep end. Pro Work Mr Feist
