Brilliant Things for a Very Good Reason
I know, I promised lists of Cheerful Things and haven't done one yet. Boo and chiz all round.
However, in lieu (and some) of that, I'm posting about the wonderful Authors For Japan. It's a lovely idea and full of brilliant stuff for writers and readers and, well, people who just love books.
I have used their logo without permission but hopefully (and if you haven't been on there already) you'll click on the link above and have a look.
It's rather exciting. Currently I'm in the lead for my name being used for a character in one of the fabulous Kate Harrison's future books. I know....that's probably as close as I'll get to being published! Wahey!
Of course you can get a bit carried away. A dear friend of mine was considering bidding on a critique for a book she isn't actually writing. See - inspiring!
Absolute fair play to all the authors and experts who have donated their time, books and artwork. Out of truly unimaginable horror, how lovely when people do what they can.
PS: If you want to just donate directly or if you get outbid on something, you can go directly to The Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal here.
