RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal

We’ve all seen the devastation the recent Queensland floods have wrought
and have wondered how we can help. We know that for many affected
families, books will not be high on their priorities list for some time
to come.

But…
We also know how valuable books can be in providing time out when
reality gets tough.

So…
With the aid of some wonderful volunteers, we’ve put together a Romance
Writers of Australia Flooded Communities Book Appeal.

What we need?
FICTION BOOKS! Romance books, children’s books, young adult books, genre
books, whatever – either new or in sparkling condition.

Please send them to:
RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal
PO Box 1717

Noosaville Post Office

Noosaville BC

Queensland 4566

When to send them?
Now! And any time over the next few months. The books will be boxed and
delivered to the appropriate libraries/schools/neighbourhood
centres/community centres in batches as soon as the communities are
ready to receive them. We’ll be liaising with councils, libraries
and schools to ensure this is done appropriately. Feel free to pop a
note inside, or if you’re an author, sign it.

Questions:

If you have a question about donations, email Jess Anastasi:
Jess@jessanastasi.com <mailto:Jess@jessanastasi.com>

If you work in a library / council / community centre / school in a
flood affected area, email Rachel Bailey: rachel@rachelbailey.com.au

Hi Diana and thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!

I’m really sorry I might have offended you with this story – I will certainly look at that as clearly it wasn’t my intention. My eldest daughter has visited Africa and loved it and I would love to follow in her footsteps at some time. Hopefully I will before too long.

Thank you so much for your comments, which mean the world to me, and make me take stock and think at the same time, which is very good for a writer.

All best to you

Trish Morey
