Authors for Queensland are putting on a huge bidding auction to help raise funds for the Queensland Floods.
Here's the FAQs and the site where you can hoon around on and see whats up for grabs. The auction went live today and closes next Monday, 24th Jan.
There's a lot of stuff to bid on, including signed books and full manuscript critiques by Aussie authors. 100% of the winning bid goes directly to the appeal. Sounds good, hey? Especially if you were planning to donate anyway ~ this way you may get something special as a bonus...
Here's a sneak peak at some of the SIGNED YA books that are up for auction. There's a little bundle that I would love to win at auction ;)
There's more YA on there as well :) Kids books and adult fiction and poetry and phone consultations, etc.
There's also original artwork from children's books...
The floods are pretty huge and eerie and completely devastating.
My husband is currently working 14 hour days on the flood phone lines and hearing all kinds of tragedies and braveries and just stories that take your breath away and are hard to compute.
Amongst the heart-breaking stuff...here's a kind of funny story...
One family returned to find a random cow on top of their roof ~ washed up there in the floods.
