Each session will also include a live moderated Q&A session for fans and book lovers to ask their favourite authors questions in real time.

Participating authors have also generously donated a range of exclusive goodies to help The Pixel Project encourage fans and book lovers to donate to the Pixel Reveal campaign including: author-curated goodie bundles, signed first editions or book bundles, 1-to-1 video calls, written critiques, tuckerisations, and more.

Czerneda, Marshall Ryan Maresca, Meg Gardiner, Pintip Dunn, Roseanne A. Brown, Sue Ann Jaffarian, and Sujata Massey. Donations begin at as little as US$5 and the goodies are available to donors as “thank you” gifts and perks depending on the donation amount. Fundraising will take place in tandem with the YouTube livestream series over the month of September.

“Violence against women is one of the most widespread and entrenched human rights violations in the world and The Pixel Project is delighted that so many acclaimed authors have stepped up to join us in raising much-needed funds and widespread support for this cause,” said Regina Yau, Founder and President of The Pixel Project.  “Since its debut in 2014, approximately 200 authors have participated in the Read For Pixels campaign, collaborating with us to raise approximately US$103,000 for the cause and ignite online discussions about violence against women by fans and supporters. It is our hope that their support of the cause will inspire fans of their wonderful books and book lovers worldwide to not only donate generously, but also begin taking action to stop the violence in their communities wherever they are in the world.”
