Authors for Japan
March 15, 2011
As the horrifying events in Japan become ever more incomprehensible, it’s easy to feel that we are powerless to do anything. The Red Cross, however, is in desperate need of funds to support its mobile emergency teams providing medical care and temporary shelter for the thousands of people affected by the disaster.
Author Keris Stainton has set up a novel way of raising funds – and everyone can take part. The Authors For Japan initiative is offering more than 150 book-related auctions where you can bid on some fantastic items, including signed books, chapter critiques, mentoring opportunities and even the chance to have a character named after you!
I’ve donated a signed copy of Kill-Grief, a typescript of chapter one with my editing scribbles from its days as a work in progress, and one of the few remaining limited edition Kill-Grief gin miniatures. You can bid on that lot here, or visit the main site to browse all the cool stuff on offer.
