This year’s auction has already beat last year’s grand total but there’s still time to raise even more money for a fantastic cause.

Hundreds of authors and illustrators have donated signed copies of their books to the auction. All proceeds go to BBC Children in Need and bids start at £9.

A copy my second novel, Elle’s A to Z of Love, is lot 385. Just in case if you fancy placing a bid 🙂

If you place the winning bid, all packaging and posting within the UK is free! If you’re outside the UK, don’t give up hope – if you contact the auction organiser (via the social media channels detailed at the end of this post or by emailing childreninread@yahoo.com) about a specific lot, they will ask the author if they can send it to you.

Successful bidders will be contacted via email after the auction ends on 19th November 2021.

And if you’ve never heard of Children in Need, it’s the BBC’s charity which raises money to help children in the UK be safe, happy, secure and have the opportunities they need to reach their potential.

Please share!

Please help spread word of the auction to anyone you think might like the chance to bid on a signed book by a favourite author.

You can also keep up with the auction’s progress on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. But remember, the auction closes next Friday, 19th November so don’t wait too long to get you bids in!

Thank you and happy bidding!
