Writers on Rafts

Well, the Authors for Queensland auction is now over, after raising $20,000 –  thanks to everyone who bid, bought or donated! 

Now we’re on to something a bit different: a lottery to win an author visit, lunch etc. I’m donating a visit within the Melbourne/Mornington Peninsula area, but there are lots of authors, lots of different types of prizes… the winner can choose from what’s offered in that category. 

And tickets are only $5!
