This guest blog features Danie Ware, an author auctioning a cameo role in her next WarHammer 40k Sisters of Battle story for her auction winner. This is an auction item to raise money via #AuthorsForFireys for the fire fighting effort here in Australia. The full set of #AuthorsForFireys interviews and blog posts will be here as soon as they are published, as interviews and guest blogs for #AuthorsForWildlife will be here.
Meet Danie Ware, who says she is:
“Single Mum, crusader geek, champion platespinner. Author of CHILDREN OF ARTIFICE (Fox Spirit Books), the ECKO trilogy (Titan Books), Judge Anderson BIGGER THAN BIGGS (Rebellion), WarHammer 40k Sisters of Battle THE BLOODIED ROSE (The Black Library), and numerous short stories.
“I juggle my writing and raising my son with conjuring events and social media for Forbidden Planet, London. Any spare time is usually spent in the gym.”
“Guess I hadn’t twigged that I’d be in my fifties (seriously, how the hell did that happen?), juggling a teenager and a writing schedule and a job that’s taken me to some weird and wonderful places. And I certainly hadn’t realised that I’d have given my black leather longcoat to my son.”
Danie lives way way over in Brexit land but she donated an item to the twitter auction to raise money for the Australian firefighting effort.

Up for Auction!
A cameo role in my next WarHammer 40k Sisters of Battle story.
If you would like the chance to die bloodily or gloriously, for the Emperor or against Him, as part of the Sisters or trying to take them down – or to froth at the forefront of the forces of Ruin – now’s your chance!
I am auctioning one cameo role in my next Sisters story, all proceeds to the #AuhthorsforFireys appeal.
The auction will close this Friday, 10th January
Once you’ve suppled proof of contribution, I will have a quick chat with the winning bidder to find out what you would like to do/be, and how this best fits with the narrative and canon.

Fundraiser information from Emily Gale
The #AuthorsForFireys auction will take place only on Twitter from Monday 6th January, ending at 11pm AEST on Saturday 11th January. Scores of authors, illustrators and book industry people will host their own individual auction under the hashtag #AuthorsForFireys and bids will take place on each tweet. At the end, the highest bidder donates the amount directly to the firefighters fund. After receiving proof of donation, the author or artist will dispatch goods/services or make arrangements for delivery.
As originally wanted by @EmilyGale and @NovaWeetman, this fundraiser is now officially for ALL fire services in Australia. The official Authors For Fireys Website will be updated accordingly. Winning bidders or auctioning authors can nominate funds to the fire service of their choice.
Items up for auction include signed books, original illustrations, one-off fan-art and craft, unique gifts and manuscript critiques for writers.
