Authors for the Philippines.

Hi, guys! Just a quick post to tell you all about Authors for the Philippines - an online bookish auction which was set up in order to raise money for the Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal. You can find all the details on THE WEBSITE, but I thought I'd highlight some of the items up for auction here as there is a ton of great stuff on there. You can bid on everything from signed books and manuscripts, critiques and even author visits to your school or local bookshop.

Anyone can bid on the items - the auction is open WORLDWIDE.

AUTHORS if you'd like to donate an item to the auction, click HERE for details.

The auction runs from today until Wednesday, November 20th 2013, so get bidding!

Here are some of the goodies on offer at the moment! (new items being added all the time!)

  1. Loved learning more where Dianne got the idea for her fantastic book. And it was so interesting reading how she and her whole family went to visit the graves. Amazing where story ideas can come from.

    Hi Dianne! I am hoping to get to more bookish events now that my little guy is a year old now. OMG--isn't Centralia super weird? It has really made an impression on me. I can't wait to read Caged Graves! :)

    SO AWESOME LEANNA!!! Thanks so much for sharing the info about this auction, I'll definitely be checking the link out. My sister in law is from the Philippines and her entire family is still there, so we we're waiting with breath held to hear from them. They're all okay, but so many aren't, and I think it's fantastic all these authors want to help!

  4. Aww. This is amazing! I'm also from the Philippines but our area wasn't affected but whoever thought of this auction is a genius and has a big heart! I can't participate in this auction though, because I'm just 14 years old. :( But I'll try to spread this! <3

  5. Leanna, thanks for hosting me on your blog! And I have to wave hello to Christina -- whom I've met once or twice at local events, but not since she had her little one!

    As for the Poconos, Christina is right. The whole area is CHOCK FULL of weird stories. I passed right by Centralia when driving to Catawissa from our ski condo at Jack Frost Mountain. There could be a whole novel right there, too!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it!
