Authors for Japan Auction

If you're anything like me, you'll have been horrified to see the devastation in Japan and will want to do something to help. One way is to visit Authors For Japan, where Keris Stainton has set up an auction. You can bid for anything from signed copies of various novels to a dedication in Jill Mansell's next book.

To bid (the auction is live now) you need to leave a comment, with the amount of your bid in the comments box (not here, but at Authors for Japan (Click on the picture).

The auction will close at 8pm on Sunday 20th March, when the highest bidders will be deemed the winners of each Lot.

Winning bidders will be notified by email and instructed to make their donations to the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.

What an awesome idea! I've been so heartened to see how strong and resilient the Japanese people are. They will emerge from this tragedy stronger. God bless them!
