BID FOR A SIGNED COPY OF THE SECRET BARRISTER’S LATEST BOOK: RAISE FUNDS FOR THE BILLABLE HOUR: MONEY THAT IS BADLY NEEDED
Thanks to to generosity of The Secret Barrister I am able to offer a special signed copy of their forthcoming book Fake Law to the highest bidder in an auction to raise funds for the Billable Hour. This is a critical time for Save the Children, it is likely that COVID-19 is going to cause devastation across the world.
“Save the Children …. are gearing up for what they think will be a CV19 catastrophe in Africa and parts of Asia. The essential point is that they need to raise a lot of money quickly and they have turned to BH to do its part… the communications from StC are the closest I’ve seen to desperation.”
(Sean Jones QC)
Details of the book are available here.
“… the Secret Barrister is back to reveal the stupidity, malice and incompetence behind many of the biggest legal stories of recent years. In Fake Law, the Secret Barrister debunks the lies and builds a defence against the abuse of our law, our rights and our democracy that is as entertaining as it is vital.”
THE SIGNED COPY
Not only has SB agreed to sign the copy but also to write a short dedication in the words of the winner’s choice. For example, “To Sam – undoubtedly the best, smartest and most modest lawyer in the universe.” (You get too choose, I should add).
The book will be sent to the winning bidder on publication.
FIRMS AND ORGANISATIONS CAN BID
Bidding is not confined to individuals. If you are a large firm or organisation that likes the idea of having a book where the author praises you directly at the front please feel free to bid.
Billable Hour has extended beyond lawyers, it concentrates upon raising money for children. Particular concerns are now arising from the impact of COVID-19 in many countries throughout the world, as the quote from Sean Jones above shows, the situation is likely to become quite desparate.
THE ONLINE (TWITTER BASED) AUCTION
You can bid via Twitter. The bidding will be on the hashtag #SBBOOK You can bid as much as you want, as many times as you want. You can bid from anywhere in the world. If you want to bid secretly send me a DM. If you don’t have access to Twitter – ask someone who does.
Bidding closes at 9.45 pm on Friday the 15TH May 2020. The highest bidder will be sent the book upon publication and after they have given details of the wording they want SB to write.
IN THE EVENT OF A TIE
The two matching bidders will be invited to bid against each other until one finally expires…
SO DON’T PASS UP ON THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME
This would make the ideal gift for the lawyer in your life. Or someone who is not a lawyer but likes to see nice things written about them on the front of books.
