Last week I participated in the #AuthorsForFireys Twitter “auction”. A lot of wonderful people posted something — books, author services, whatever — for others to bid on and raise money for Australia.
I managed to raise AU$ 250 this way, which isn’t bad for an indie, and is certainly welcome for Australian firefighters.
But I want to do more.
So, simply, I’m going to leave this running till the end of summer (coincidentally, also my birthday). I thought about donating proceeds from sales, but after Amazon has taken it’s not insignificant cut that will mostly line the wrong pockets.
I’ll can make it as simple as I can: If you donate to any of the charities below and send me the receipt, I’ll send you a free copy of one of my novels:
- AUD 10 or over gets you an ebook copy
- AUD 40 or more, gets you a signed paperback, shipped anywhere in the world
- AUD 100 for beta-reading or book layout
The links below go directly to the correct fire services’ websites and other charities, so you know the money goes where it’s needed. They should accept credit cards (including international donations).
- Victoria Country Fire Authority:
- NSW Rural Fire Service:
- Red Cross Australia:
- WIRES Wildlife Rescue NSW: https://www.wires.org.au/donate/emergency-fund
- Greenpeace Australia:
If you have another charity in mind, just contact me. I’ll likely accept anything environmental related.
Let do some good (while enjoying good books)! I’ll post the sum raised by the end of summer.
