E.L. James Donates Books to Flood Victims

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

E.L. James is lending her support to help raise money for a flood ravaged cricket club in the U.K.

The Fifty Shades of Grey author has donated a signed set of her bestselling trilogy to be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to cause. Yorkshire-based writers Bob and Carol Bridgestock who write thrillers under the pseudonym RC Bridgestock are heading up the fundraising effort. James contacted the two after seeing their appeal on Twitter.

The Guardian has the scoop:

“It was absolutely amazing to hear directly from her – I was lost for words that such a big-name writer was getting in touch wanting to help,” she said. “EL James is such a massive name with a huge following – everyone knows her books. She said she would sign and dedicate the books personally to whoever wins the auction. It’s such a boost.”
