Authors are doing their bit to raise money for those impacted by the Australian bushfires by joining in an #AuthorsForFireys #AuthorsForFiries event on Twitter. Authors such as Tara Moss and Peter Fitzsimmons are auctioning off signed books, while other authors like Cheryl Strayed are offering leather-bound or first editions of their books.
Holly Ringland and Liane Moriarty are a couple of the many authors offering the highest bidder the chance for their name to appear in a book.
Some industry professionals are offering their services to aspiring authors, such as an introduction to an agent or a manuscript appraisal, or support in a grant application. Nicole Alexander is offering a Skype session to discuss books, research or rural Australia.
Trent Dalton is offering a Brisbane Book Club a personal visit, where he’ll drop by their next meeting with a bottle of French champagne and read some of the French version of Boy Swallows Universe to them PLUS give the BC members a preview of his next novel.
Interested in bidding for great author items for an excellent cause? Head on over to Twitter. The auction ends on Saturday 11th January.
