So many people have been affected by the bushfires and as individuals it's hard to know the best way to help. I love the super supportive nature of the indie author community, we all help each other.
So how better to help than by buying some books from those affected by the fires. What a lovely way to give a mental and financial boost to a fellow author.
We've created a list separated by genre below.
We'll add to this list so if you know an Aussie author who has been affected, comment with their name or drop us an email and we'll add them in.
