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.

OK, so the link is below on my Facebook pages, but if for some reason you can't find it, here it is again.

Note, I'm asking for $10 for one entrance, and as I said, if you want multiple opportunities to go down in flames in my next novel, do it $10 a pop. I guess I didn't make that clear as someone sent me $5 twice. Nice try, but you only get one pull, and if your name comes up, then I'll ask you the type of character. I should add besides pirate or mercenary, you can also be a humble villager horribly murdered by mercenaries or pirates . . . or maybe by demons? Haven't decided on that part yet.

OK, so here we go again. To be clear, if you haven't read the posts on Facebook, the book incentives are for contributions $100 and above for a signed hardcover of my choice, in the US and Canada only. I'll do overseas, Europe and Downunder, later in the month, as well as all paperback incentives. This is a bit of a test, so please don't contribute outside the US, under $100 and expect an incentive. If you contribute $5 or more, you're name gets put in a draw to have a character named after you in the next book.

Notice: Please indicate "hide from all but the organizer," on your comments page, or it will be viewed by anyone looking at the campaign site!

This campaign has officially ended, but like most go fund me campaigns, it will linger on the web site should someone come along and want to help, but the official fund raising is over.

I want to say thank you to all who gave from a few dollars that were hard to part with up to some very generous donations beyond my expectation.

I may find something or someone else and set up another of these if circumstances permit, for the time being I'm back to being a full time writer.

Again, one more time, thank you very must.

Thanks for all the help folks.

Now, for those who didn't see the last update, the book incentive was supposed to stop at midnight last night. But I'll add those who didn't get that message to the list, but folks, I'm up to over 50 books to sign, package and mail out. So, please I'll keep adding names for contributions until midnight tonight, then after that I am done. Again, thanks to everyone who contributed. It's very much appreciated.

Hey Raymond, I made a donation 4 days ago but forgot to leave my address. It's 20 Graylind Avenue, West Pennant Hills, NSW 2125 Australia. I just wanted to say that your Riftwar Saga is so special to me. I re read them when I'm sad to immerse myself into the magical world of Midkemia. Thank you so much.

Magician is my favourite book. If I can help another author write something even half as good, it would be worth it.
