Charity Fantasy Calendar

Have you heard of Charity Fantasy Calendar? I was recently contacted by Lauren Zurchin about it and wow! I love when people come up with creative ways to fund raise and she had me at YA authors. I hope you take some time to visit Lauren's website and her Kickstart project!

My name is Lauren Zurchin, I'm a professional photographer and managing editor for fantasy and science fiction blog. I recently launched an ambitious project: photographing fourteen of the world’s most famous fantasy authors in custom hand-crafted costumes, and putting the photos together into a fantasy calendar for charity. The authors involved are Brandon Sanderson, Brandon Mull, Christopher Paolini, Gregory Maguire, Tad Williams, Patrick Rothfuss, Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, Lauren Kate, Lauren Oliver, Maggie Stiefvater, Gail Carriger, Tessa Gratton, and Brenna Yovanoff.

This project is huge, and with the support of these authors I've taken to Kickstarter to raise the bare-minimum funds needed to make this project a reality. Every author involved in the project has offered limited edition exclusive items up for grabs -- prizes that are only offered this one time and never again.

About the charity aspect:



  1. Wow! Love the idea of this calendar of fantasy/sci-fi authors! I would love to have one!

  2. Wow, what an ambitious project! Can't wait to see the results!!
