AUCTION NOW CLOSED
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.
(Find out more about the giveaway here: http://booknest.eu/index.php/component/k2/item/287)
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 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
13) Afe Smith ~ TBA
14) Jonathan French ~ The Grey Bastards
15) Robert Brockway ~ The Unnoticeables
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.

Mr Mark Lawrence kindly hosted the first auction yesterday, and managed to raise over $500, so let's see if we can top that for MSF.
All that's left for me to say is happy bidding, and good luck!
