I couldn’t really let this go without mentioning it – a new website has been setup to raise vital funds for the Red Cross Typhoon Appeal Haiyan Appeal which is raising money to help out those who have been affected by the recent awful events in the Philippines.
Authors for the Philippines is setting up auctions of wonderful literary goods from critiques and tea and cake with authors to signed copies of books and lots of things in between.
For more information check out Author for the Philippines and if you’re an author who would like to get involved full details are here.
Here are some of the things that have caught my eye:
- 100: Afternoon tea with authors Joe Craig and Holly Smale
- 104: Signed copy of ACID and a 15000 word critique of a YA novel from Emma Pass
- 192: Manuscript critique by YA author Sharon Jones + signed book
- 36: Signed copies of ‘Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind’ and ‘Geekhood: Mission Improbable’ by Andy Robb.
- 170: A character name in the first book in John and Carole E. Barrowman’s HOLLOW EARTH UNBOUND trilogy.
- 13: Full set of signed Rachel Riley books by Joanna Nadin
… And more are being added all the time – all auctions close on the 20th November 8pm so get your bids in now!
Not only will you bag some literary special goods but be helping a good cause in the process!
