Thanks to those who have donated already! We have a nice start to the auctions already but can use more! Below is my donation letter with more info:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear writers, editors, publishers, collectors and friends from the horror community,

For those who don't know me, I have been involved in the horror business for a number of years now. Former fiction editor and book reviewer for several magazines. I've worked behind the scenes as a freelance proofreader & convention organizer and in the horror & Stephen King fandom circles for nearly 20 years.

I'm also openly HIV positive and have been living with HIV & AIDS for over 10 years and it has been my mission in life to fund raise for HIV/AIDS related causes.

I host an annual event in Oregon called the "Red Ribbon Show" where we have given away over $120,000 in nine years to a number of organizations in the northwest and as far as Tijuana. This year, on Sept. 30 we will be benefiting four organizations: Camp Starlight which serves children affected by HIV, Partnership Project, Valley AIDS Info Network and HIV Alliance, which all offer care management, prevention programs and assistance to those newly diagnosed and living with HIV/AIDS across Oregon. This year, my 10th year producing the event, will be my last. Producing this large event year after year has taken a toll on my health so it's time to end it with a bang!

I am reaching out to the horror community, those I've worked with, those I'm friends with, those that I'm a fan of, who might be able to help our cause this year by providing donations for an online book auction to be hosted by Don Koish of Shocklines Auctions on eBay. Signed books, limiteds, proofs, manuscripts, artwork, extra collectibles, anything that you'd be willing to part with that might bring in some extra cash for our charities this year. (I'll be donating some extra books from my collection including Stephen King collectibles)

The auctions will be held between now and September 1. They will begin whenever Don has a nice stack of stuff to start a round of auctions.  If you are able to donate something, email me at horrorjonny@gmail.com and I'll provide you Don's address to send to.

Sincerely and with many thanks,

Jonathan Reitan

Hey folks! Just a reminder that the auctions will start soon for those still wanting to donate something or to those who have already agreed to send something our way.

We have a great list so far of items from authors, artists, editors, publishers and collectors! Thanks all for helping out one last time!

Unfortunately, I just sent a box of extras to overlook, and the remaining ones are already earmarked for STC's charity auction. But I'll boost the signal for you on social media and put it in Sunday's newsletter.

I want to thank the following authors, editors and collectors for sending in items to my horror charity auctions benefiting HIV/AIDS organizations of the Northwest. The first round of auctions will be posted this week from Don at Shocklines Auctions. It's not too late to donate something if you're still able to! 100% of proceeds goes to four organizations that provide support, financial assistance, and prevention education for thousands of people living with HIV/AIDS across Oregon. Contact me at JonathanReitan@gmail.com. Thanks!

Jonathan, I mentioned earlier I would be sending some items to Don for auction, and I feel horribly that that did not happen...my best intentions got interrupted with a number of things, but that's no excuse.  I will pay close attention to Don's listings and see if I can't pick up an item or two, and be a buyer rather than a contributor, and try to make up for it.  My apologies again.
