When Marjorie from Paper Tigers posted this announcement several days back, we knew we had to repost it here on Gathering Books. This is truly a lovely initiative to help out the people in Japan who have shown such grace, determination, and courage regardless of everything that they are presently going through.
Authors for Japan is an on-line auction that would be running until Sunday, the 20th of March, at 8 pm. Some of the “items” up for bid would include a “Frank and Fearless 1000-word critique by Katie Fforde”; your own name as a character in a book in Tommy Donbavand’s new, top secret series in addition to three signed Scream Street books. Our very own Filipino Author based in London Candy Gourlay is putting up a paperback edition of Tall Story signed and drawn on by Candy herself. There are quite a number of things that you can choose from as offered by these lovely authors. Authors for Japan is an on-line auction set up by author Keris Stainton in the hopes of raising money for the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal. So do click on this link and see how you can help.
