ETA: And the auction is now closed. The final bid was an amazing $375, which means we’re starting things out with a great contribution to the Aicardi Syndrome Foundation. Huge thanks to everyone who participated!
I have two boxes full of fresh-from-the-printer 2014 calendars, packed full of cover-posing goodness.
Most of the calendars will be sold through the Tinker’s Pack website, because Pat Rothfuss has a team of wonderful employees who offered to take care of things like orders and shipping and all the rest. Whereas I have a team of ill-behaved pets and two children who think things like homework and playing are more important than packing and mailing calendars for Daddy.
As with last year’s fundraiser, all profits from the sale of these calendars will go to the Aicardi Syndrome Foundation.
It will probably be a week or two before I can get these shipped to Wisconsin and they show up on the Tinker’s Pack website, but if you don’t want to wait, you’re in luck. I’m auctioning off one calendar Right Now! I’ll even autograph and personalize it for you.
Not only that, but if the bidding goes past $50, you also get a download code for an audio book copy of Libriomancer.
If it reaches $100, I’ll throw in an 8 x 10 print of “Mary’s Angels,” autographed by all of us. That’s worth at least $100 all by itself, isn’t it? (Depending on how high the bidding goes, I may toss in some other goodies as well.)
To encourage you to bid, here’s a picture of Taz the cat hanging out with the calendar. (Note: cat is not included in this auction.)
HOW CAN YOU REFUSE THAT KITTY???
To Bid: Leave your bid in the comments at http://www.jimchines.com/2013/10/cover-pose-calendar-auction/ Bidding must be in whole-dollar amounts. Opening bid amount is $20.
Shipping: I’ll cover shipping within the U.S. If you’re bidding from outside the U.S., I’ll have to ask you to chip in a few extra bucks. Sorry.
Deadline: The auction will close in one week.
Reminder: All proceeds go to a very good cause.
Emotionally Manipulative Comment: If this doesn’t get lots of bids, Taz will be a VERY SAD KITTY!
