Match It For Pratchett

Jennifer Jackson, an agent at Donald Maass Literary Agency, posted about this in her blog. That’s how I found out about it. The Match It For Pratchett website explains what it’s about:

“Terry Pratchett, author of the bestselling Discworld novels, has been diagnosed with a rare form of Alzheimer’s. He has donated half a million pounds (approx $1 million) to Alzheimer’s research and appeared in the media highlighting the low levels of research funding Alzheimer’s receives. Millions of loyal readers from around the world have responded and are helping to match Terry’s donation.”

Ms. Jackson is offering a special reward in order to help Mr. Pratchett reach his goal: she will review the first 50 pages of the highest donating writer’s manuscript if he or she sends verification to her by midnight (EST) on Saturday, March 22. Even without this very kind incentive, it’s a very worthwhile cause.

Please do what you can to help.
