The first week of 2019 will start with our 300 episode of our long running radio show that is heard by thousands of people from around the world.

We are excited to be reaching a milestone and to make it even more special, we will be auctioning off that show as a way to raise money for the DEAR Texas Literacy program which gets Texas Authors books into Title 1 schools & libraries.

We will do a lot of extra promotion for this show, so the winner of the bidding will benefit greatly for their donation.

  • Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest & Tumblr Promotion before and after the airing ($500 Value)
  • A Radio commercial to air beginning two weeks before the show and for two weeks after the show. ($100 value)

Bidding begins on September 12, 2018 and ends at midnight on November 1, 2018. The winning bid will have 24 hours to pay for the bid, or they will forfeit and the next highest bid will be given 24 hours to pay for their bid. If no one has paid their bid by midnight November 5, 2018 the auction will be cancelled and no winner will be selected.

Proceeds from this auction will go to the DEAR Texas Literacy program that gets books by Texas Authors into Title 1 schools & libraries. The donation should be tax deductible under the DEAR Texas, Inc., 501.c.3 status.
