A unique proof copy of my book Undercover: Operation Julie – The Inside Story is soon to be auctioned on eBay. All proceeds of the auction will be donated to my charity of choice, the James Bulger Memorial Trust.
It is unique as it was printed as a one-off and shipped to me as a proof copy for the author. It is new and unread as I only checked for layout, typos and the usual stuff. In any event, I didn’t need to read it as I had a good idea what was in there 🙂
A number of changes were made to the book as a result of checking this proof copy. Some content was deleted and some added as well as chapters being revised and new titles for some of the old chapters.
The eBay listing can be found by clicking here.
Auction Starts 2 am (UK time) November 19, 2016
And will close on November 29, 2016. Please note there is a reserve set for the auction.
Why the James Bulger Memorial Trust?
James Bulger will never be forgotten. He was a fun-loving, innocent little boy whose life was so cruelly taken away from him.
Millions remember with horror the terrible abduction and murder of two-year-old James, that happened in February 1993 in the Bootle and Liverpool areas of the United Kingdom.
To this day James’ mother Denise Fergus continues to receive messages of sympathy and support from people all over the world.
The aims and objectives of the James Bulger Memorial Trust Ltd are to benefit and support young people who are disadvantaged by reason of having become the victims of crime, hatred or bullying. To reward those who are judged to have shown exemplary conduct, making a positive contribution to the welfare of others, or society in general.
To do so by providing cost-free travel and holiday accommodation for such children and their families; along with a range of other tangible rewards, as deemed appropriate by the Trustees or their appointed representatives, and to support other organisations benefiting children in similar circumstances, as deemed appropriate by the Trustees.

My fundraising page for the James Bulger Memorial Trust is here. I will be donating a portion of all my book sales royalties to this worthy cause.
I am now asking you to do a couple of things –
- Share this post far and wide among friends, neighbors and on your social media channels such as your Facebook page
- Ask other to make a bid or make a donation using the auction or the above links
My book is subject of a Kindle countdown deal at the end of November to coincide with Cyber Monday. I will donate all royalties from Kindle sales made during the countdown deal. More details of that deal to be announced here.
