Author and Illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi Donating Signed & Doodled Book PLUS Social Media Platform Critique #KidLitForHaiti

KID LIT FOR HAITI:  Debbie Ridpath Ohi is donating two very unique auction items to ONE lucky winner: First, she will sign AND doodle (!!) a copy of any book she has illustrated (winner’s choice!—and shipped anywhere in the world). Second, this same winner will also receive a social media platform critique. The winning bidder will provide Debbie with basic info (she’ll provide a form by e-mail to help you) which will help her understand your goals. With the latter in mind, she will review your URLs and provide a two-page critique by e-mail within six weeks. Please note: Debbie's written critique will help you identify your needs and how to improve your social media platform—things you must execute; she will not be involved in the execution nor promotion.

Debbie has been creating websites and blogging since the early days of the Web. She is the founder of Inkspot, which was one of the first websites for writers, and had nearly 50,000 subscribers to her email newsletter. With 29,000 Twitter Followers and savvy insider skills, Debbie proves she knows social media and will surely provide great insight to one lucky auction winner!
