#Authorsforfireys – a fund raiser

I came across this wonderful initiative this morning and felt the immediate wish to participate.

A group of authors has banded together to create a twitter auction for signed books or other ‘author’ objects, with proceeds going to the Victorian Country Fire Authority (see the relevant website here: https://authorsforfireys.wixsite.com/website ).

I haven’t done anything like this before, but very much want to support this effort with a signed copy (or more) of my free verse poetry memoir Small Town Kid.


The link to my offer on Twitter is here.

I would welcome interest and bidding for my book r any other author offered book or object. The Twitter hashtag to look over offerings from other authors is: #AUTHORSFORFIREYS

If there is interest, I’ll look at auctioning more. Haven’t done this before.

Please feel free to share or otherwise pass on information about the Auction. It’s one of the few ways that an author can contribute as an author.

Thank you.

    • It’s a great idea, Mick. I’m coming to think it may not work super well for me, as I’m not well known and I fall into the scrum of Twitter posts unnoticed.

      I have another cunning plan, though. Need a day or two to organise myself for some audio.
