Win a signed novel & help a charity

If you're on Facebook and you haven't heard of 'Make for Macmillan' you're missing a treat. Created by Claire, who wanted a project to help take her mind of her own battle with cancer, it's a fantastic online community where crafters donate some of the wonderful things they've made so they can be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

You can get your hands on some really unusual and unique items AND help charity at the same time. I've won some fantastic items including a hand-carved name plate for my niece, a cross-stitch kit and crocheted 'angry birds'!

Claire's latest auction is brilliant - dozens of authors have donated signed books (you can request a dedication or particular wording) and there's a huge selection to choose from including:

  • Allie Danielle aka Allie Spencer
  • Cally Taylor (that'd be me!)
  • David Nicholls
  • Julie Cohen
  • Kate Hardy
  • Rowan Coleman
  • Rosy Thornton
  • Michelle Gorman
  • Freya North
  • Milly Johnson
  • Adele parks
  • Jenny Colgan
  • Emma Donoghue
  • Sarra Manning
  • Jo Carnegie
  • Kate Regan
  • Matt Harvey
  • Katie Fford
  • Louise Bagshaw
To join in you just need to leave a comment with your bid amount by Sunday 5th June, 8pm.

What are you waiting for?
