Fabulous Fantasy Fundraiser Book Auction!

January 12, 2017



Today, I have the enormous pleasure of hosting the second and final auction for the Booknest's Fabulous Fantasy Fundraiser. I will be auctioning off 20 SIGNED FANTASY BOOKS to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). The fundraiser, run by Retros Triantafylloy has already raised just under $4,000, and with your help we can raise even more.

The Auction

This auction is for 20 books signed by 20 fantastic authors. It'll run until 9pm GMT on Friday the 13th of January. It's going to be a lucky day for the top bidder, who will have the 20 books delivered straight to their doorstep. That’s a large pile of books. That’s the height of your average spaniel. You’ll have to buy a new shelf to accommodate all the awesomeness.


The Books

The auction contains works by amazing authors such as Peter Newman (2016 Morningstar Award-winner), Marc Turner (shortlisted for the British Fantasy Awards’ Best Newcomer in 2016), and Sebastien De Castell (winner of the Booknest's Best Fantasy Award). We’ve also got epic fantasy author Snorri Kristjansson, historical fantasy author Scott Oden, Stan Nicholls (organiser of The Gemmel Awards), critically acclaimed and all-round maniac Michael R. Fletcher, SPFBO Cover Competition Winner Michael Miller, SPFBO Finalist Jonathan French, SPFBO 15 Bloggers’ Favourite (me!), and a whole host of other great authors.



Here’s the entire list for you to salivate over:

01) Marc Turner ~ Dragon Hunters

02) Elena May ~ Kingdom of Ashes

03) Peter Newman ~ The Vagrant

04) Stan Nicholls ~ Orcs: Forged For War

05) Sebastien De Castell ~ Traitor's Blade

06) Snorri Kristjansson ~ Swords of Good Men

07) Deb E Howell ~ Healer's Touch

08) Brandon Draga ~ The Summerlark Elf

09) Mitchell Hogan ~ A Crucible of Souls

10) Vic James ~ Gilded Cage

11) Michael Miller ~ The Dragon's Blade: The Reborn King

12) Courtney Schafer ~ The Whitefire Crossing

16) Michael R. Fletcher ~ Beyond Redemption

17) Dave de Burgh ~ TBA

18) James Downe ~ Grim Drifts of Sand & Fate

19) Ben Galley ~ TBA

20) Scott Oden ~ A Gathering of Raven


It’s an unmissable pack of books. Did I mentioned they were signed? Some may even be doodled.
