A couple of girls, while talking on Twitter about the horror of the floods, came up with an idea of asking other authors to donate signed books, manuscript assessments and anything else book related to help the victims of the QLD floods. Those girls would be Katrina Germein, Emily Gale, Kate Gordon and fellow rural writer Fleur McDonald.
The response they had was just amazing. If you head over to the website http://authorsforqueensland.wordpress.com/ you can bid on signed copies of books by authors including: Rachael Treasure, Helene Young, Bronwyn Parry, Fleur McDonald, Lisa Heidke, Kylie Ladd, Katie Fforde, Craig Silvey, Wendy Orr, all of the organisers books, and myself just to name a few. (You can bid on a pre-release of Heart of Gold!)
So if you have a few minutes please pop over to take a look and see if there is something that you love, or that would be a great Christmas or birthday present for someone.
Every bit helps!
