  • do you have a sample script for Easy Money and how the silent auction ties in?
    Looking as a fundraiser in April

    Thanks

  • Hi Ms Violini,

    My name is Dan and I’m self-isolating with my family in San Diego. I am very interested in purchasing your book “Clue Trails …” Can you email me to discuss purchase options?

      • Ms Violini,

        After spending a few days with your ebook, I am happy to report how much I enjoy your process. Of all the great guidance you provide, I liked the diagrams the most. You make planning a mystery so easy. I hope I have the imagination to fill in the blanks. Thanks again.

        Dan

        • Thanks Dan! I am thrilled that you are finding it useful : ) and expect you will have a book out the door before you know it.
          Please let me know if you have any plot questions.

  • Could you please send me more information regarding using the Easy Money script with a silent auction. Our group is interested in doing this. How is the auction incorporated into the script?

    • HI Julie – The Easy Money info package should be in your inbox now. The silent auction is incorporated as an estate sale during the reading of the last will and testament of Jake Slanders. Let me know if you have any other questions. We can chat if you like.
