Raising money for Queensland


Katrina Germein, Emily Gale, Kate Gordon and I have got together to raise money for the QLD Flood victims.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve stood in front of the TV crying at the images and feeling so completely helpless. I couldn’t volunteer with the clean up, from down at the bottom of WA!

So after talking to these girls on Twitter, we came up with an idea of asking other authors to donate signed books, manuscript assessments and anything else that is slightly ‘bookie’!

The response we 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, Fiona Palmer, Lisa Heidke, Kylie Ladd, Katie Fforde, Craig Silvey, Wendy Orr and all of the organisers books, just to name a few. I’ve also thrown in three manuscript assessments (to be used after July) as have other authors.

I really hope that you’ll come on over, take a look and see if there is something that you love, or that would be a great Christmas or birthday present for someone.

Come on! Let’s show the Queenslanders how much we care for our fellow Aussies!

* Winning bidders will be notified by email and instructed to make their donations to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal . The donation to the appeal must be the pledged amount or higher.

Once winners have made their donations they need to email us their receipt as proof of payment. We will then organize for auction items to be distributed.

We ask that you only bid if you are  in a position to purchase the item. Genuine bids only please.

  1. I am madly bidding on things at the auction. I will win, I will win, I WILL win.
    Competitive much? LOL
    As long as I bump up prices and it raises lots of money, it’s all good.
    Well done guys, fabulous idea.
