Back in 2008, Queena was a vibrant eighteen-year-old with her whole life ahead of her. That changed the night she was brutally raped, beaten, and left for dead after dropping books off at the library. The attack left her blind and unable to walk or talk, requiring around-the-clock care.
To get a true feel for her story, please take a moment to watch this video:
This April will mark not only the seventh year since Queena’s attack, but also her twenty-fifth birthday. Now, she can communicate by widening her eyes, smiling, and clenching her fists. Every day, she fights her way through intensive, sometimes experimental therapies, that add up to over $70,000 a year. We’d like to ease her family’s financial burden however we can. It’s our chance to change a real life “New Adult” story
We'll have all kinds of items available for bidding, i.e. signed paperbacks/hardcovers, e-books, critiques, promotional items, service vouchers, Skype consultations, etc. The auction will span three days through 32Auctions and 100% of all funds raised will go to Queena’s family (http://www.joinQueena.com).

Calling all bookworms and writers! This is an auction you won't want to miss.
We are excited to present various items from authors and publishing professionals from around the globe. Signed books, ebook bundles, publishing services, critiques, design, and more!
Items up for bid will be open to any and all bidders. Please note that some items will be for U.S. residents only, due to postage constraints.
Authors have come together to support this amazing young woman, Queena, of JoinQueena.com, who inspires others every day. The auction will last for three days, at which time the highest bidder will win the item, and the auction will close. In the meantime, bidders may continue to outbid each other by raising the USD amount as often as they like.
