Fundraiser for immigrants and refugees

Update, 7/16/18: I will be leaving this fundraiser open for anyone who wishes to pick up a book and donate to RAICES, since there’s no particular reason to call a halt to it. The stock list may get outdated, though, so please do email me to make sure what you want is still available.

I’ve already donated to one of the organizations working to oppose the Trump administration’s cruel imprisonment of refugees and immigrants and to reunite the separated families, but I want to do more. Since I’ve also been thinking that I should cut down on my stock of author copies, that provides me with a way to raise some more money for the cause.

The plan is simple. I’ve listed the available books below; all of them will be signed unless you specify otherwise. If you want to buy one or more, drop me a line at marie{dot}brennan{at}gmail{dot}com telling me which ones you want, who if anyone you’d like them inscribed to, and where I should send them. After I’ve confirmed that the books you want are still in stock, donate the price of the books to RAICES, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, an organization in Texas, and send me a copy of your receipt (after deleting or blacking out any personal information you’d prefer me not to see).

Shipping is covered anywhere in the U.S. For shipping internationally, I may ask you to PayPal me a few bucks to help mitigate the cost, because that can add up incredibly fast.

So here’s the list of books. Note that I have numerous foreign-language copies of the first two Memoirs, in a variety of translations; if you would like something to keep your hand in, or know someone who reads that language and might like the book, please do consider picking one up! It’s hard for me to find good homes for them in the normal way of things.

Current fundraiser total: $623

(That last one requires a bit of explanation. I recently bought out my publisher’s remaining stock of the book in order to get the rights to revert so I can republish the series; as a consequence, I have a lot of copies on hand. I’m not even sure how many, but suffice it to say that I have more than I’m going to move via this fundraiser. Though hey, prove me wrong!)

If you have any questions, drop them in the comments or send an email. Let’s raise some funds!

    I’ll take the Russian translation of Natural History if no one else has.

    I’m going to email you in a minute, but I want a German translation of “A Natural History…” Just decided to start learning German last week and wanted a book to practice with, so this is perfect!

    I’ll take a hardcover “Within the Sanctuary of Wings” please!

    Playing in my head is the Sesame Street song “One of these things is not like the others…” – through various means I’ve collected signed copies of Lady Trent 2-4, and hopefully will snag #5 today. Is there any way we can we round out the collection with a signed hardback “A Natural History of Dragons”?
