Authors For Japan - Elen Caldecott

We've all been shocked and horrified by the images coming out of Japan over these last few days. I cannot imagine how the survivors feel. My heart goes out to the people who have lost so much. Yesterday I heard that there was going to be an auction of donated literary-themed items to help raise money for the disaster relief. The result is 'Authors For Japan'. Please take a look at the items for sale, they include signed books, critiques of work, your name in the author's next book...all kinds of great options to bid on. The money raised will go to the British Red Cross in Japan, though you don't neeed to be based in Britain to take part. The auction closes on Sunday 20th March. It would be great if you could share the link in your social network too. Thank you.

Thanks so much for featuring the auction Elen. Bids are rolling in already - although there's lots of loot left for people to bid for.
