Australia's Flood Disaster
This was sent to me about the flooding in Queensland. If anyone has anything they'd like to donate for the silent auction, just contact the email address below.
As you will be aware there has been another natural disaster in Australia, this time in Queensland with water covering some 75% of the state and indeed areas of other Australian states. In some areas entire townships or suburbs have been completely submerged and residents have lost everything they own.
On 26 March, in conjunction with the Australian Romance Readers Convention, we are planning to hold a Silent Auction to raise funds for the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal. We are looking for items to be included in the Silent Auction during ARRC2011.
If you would like to send something you can contact me at email@example.com (Subject line: Silent Auction) for further information. A photo of the item would be greatly appreciated - a special page will set up on our blog for delegates to view the items available ahead of the auction.
Your generosity in 2009 helped us to raise over $7500 for the victims of the Victorian bushfires and we hope we can match this for the flood victims in Queensland. Anything you can send us would be greatly appreciated.

If you didn't receive your Part 7 or Part 8 or any other part of Allure of the Wolf, email me. I received some emails this morning where readers didn't receive Part 7, but received Part 8 just fine. Not sure where these are going. As you all know, sometimes I don't even get the newsletter!!!
And sometimes it asks if I want to unsubscribe. Huh?
Off to try and get my word count today!!!
Have a great Sunday. It's stormy here--and very cold.
