Spread the Love

The Romance Writers of Australia is launching a book appeal as they know many affected families who have lost everything in the devestating bush fires that swept southern Australia last week. Books will not be high on their list of necessities for some time to come. But these amazing Australian writers also know how valuable books can be in providing time out when reality gets tough.

So with the aid of some wonderful volunteers, they've put together a Romance Writers of Australia Bushfire Book Appeal and are looking for FICTION BOOKS. Romance books, children's books, genre books, literary fiction, whatever — either new or in sparkling condition. Feel free to pop a note inside, or if you're the author, sign the book.

If any of you have books you'd be willing to donate — it's expensive mailing them overseas, though, but they'd be so grateful to have them — please send them to:

RWA Bushfire Book Appeal
c/- 89 Rennie St
Thornbury Vic 3071

"The books will be boxed and delivered to the appropriate neighbourhood centres, community centres, and libraries in batches as soon as practicable. With thanks from Anne Gracie, Romance Writers of Australia Inc., and all our Australian friends."
