From Keris Stainton’s blog, there’s an opportunity to link with authors and readers to help those in Japan. Keris writes:
We’ll be putting posts up throughout the day so you can get an idea of the amazing items available before bidding opens. The auction will open at 8am GMT tomorrow (Tuesday 15th March) and close at 8pm on Sunday (the 20th). To bid, you’ll need to leave a comment (with the amount of your bid) in the relevant comments box. At the conclusion of the auction the bidder who has made the highest bid in UK Pounds will be deemed the winner. Winning bidders will be notified by email and instructed to make their donations to the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.
What’s available? Books, artwork, time, advice, critiques of novels, chapters, etc. in aid of Japan: http://networkedblogs.com/fpb5h
I was amazed at the variety of items to big on and the heartfelt comments by authors. There were 150 items when I last checked. Hope you bid for your favorites.
