Support the #AuthorsForFireys online auction

Australian authors are hosting an online auction to raise funds for the firefighters who are working to fight this year’s unprecedented and horrifying fire season.

Items up for auction can be tracked on Twitter under the #AuthorsForFireys or #AuthorsForFiries hashtags. We’ve compiled a list of some of the offerings below with links straight to the author’s bids on Twitter. This is an incomplete list (because items can be added at any time), but it does showcase the range of options on offer.

To bid on an item, you should reply to the original tweets on Twitter and contact the authors directly.
