Get in Character with @CLIC_Sargent

I’m not really taking on new blog material at the moment but when Martha got in touch from the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent wondering if I could help them spread the word about a special eBay book auction they are running from today, Monday 4 March to Sunday 10 March, called Get in Character I couldn’t have been more delighted to get involved.

As many of you know, my husband has only just gone to 6 monthly checks for his cancer, my lovely dad had cancer, and my sister-in-law is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer so this is a topic very close to my heart. Add in books to the mix and this couldn’t be a better fit for Linda’s Book Blog.

In the Get In Character auction people can bid to have their name as a character in their favourite author’s book, as well as get signed books and illustrations, all in a fantastic cause.

Having been a character in a book (No Safe Home by lovely Tara Lyons, my review of which you can read here) I know just how exciting it can be to see your name in print.

Over 50 authors are taking part this year, with character names up for grabs with writers including Holly Martin, Katie Fforde, Christie Barlow and Elly Griffiths.

Now, as Elly Griffiths will be appearing at my local literary festival in May (tickets available here) I think I know what I’ll be bidding for!

You can find more information about the auction on the CLIC Sargent website.  The auction is live from today on the CLIC Sergent eBay site until Sunday 10th March 2019.

I do hope you’ll get involved and support a wonderful cause.
