Welcome to another Transgender Michigan Fundraiser auction!
Transgender Michigan was founded in 1997, and continues to run one of the only transgender helplines in the country, available 24/7 at 855-345-8464. Every tax-deductible donation helps them continue to provide support, advocacy, and education.
Today’s auction is for an autographed set of the three Necromancer Chronicles books, along with either a print or audio book of DREAMS OF SHREDS & TATTERS.
About THE DROWNING CITY (Book one of the Necromancer Chronicles):
Symir — the Drowning City. home to exiles and expatriates, pirates and smugglers. And violent revolutionaries who will stop at nothing to overthrow the corrupt Imperial government.
For Isyllt Iskaldur, necromancer and spy, the brewing revolution is a chance to prove herself to her crown. All she has to do is find and finance the revolutionaries, and help topple the palaces of Symir. But she is torn between her new friends and her duties, and the longer she stays in this monsoon-drenched city, the more intrigue she uncovers — even the dead are plotting.
As the waters rise and the dams crack, Isyllt must choose between her mission and the city she came to save.
This auction is open to U.S. residents.
How to bid:
- Minimum bid is $20 U.S. Bidding starts at http://www.jimchines.com/2016/12/tgm-fundraiser-downum/ the moment this post goes live!
- Enter your bid in the comments. Bids must be a minimum of $1 more than the previous bid. (No bouncing from $20.01 to $20.02 to $20.03 and so on.) Make sure to include an email address I can use to contact you.
- Each auction will run for 24 hours, starting at noon Eastern time and running until noon the following day.
- To discourage last-minute sniping, I’ll wait until 10 minutes after the last bid to close an auction.
- If you want to be notified about other bids, check the “Subscribe to Comments” box when you bid.
Winning the auction:
I’ll contact the winner, who will then donate the winning bid to Transgender Michigan. You’ll forward me a copy of the receipt, at which point, I’ll contact the donor to arrange delivery of your winnings.
About Amanda Downum:
Amanda Downum was born in Virginia, and has since then spent time in Indonesia, Micronesia, Missouri, and Arizona, with brief layovers in California and Colorado. In 1990 she was sucked into the gravity well of Texas, and hasn’t managed to escape. Yet.
She lives in Austin, where she can be found haunting absinthe bars, goth clubs, rock gyms, and other liminal spaces. Her other hobbies include cooking hearts and hiking. Her day job sometimes lets her dress as a giant worm. She can be summoned at a crossroad on the new moon, or through Facebook or Twitter.
Don’t forget about the DAW Raffle!
My publisher, DAW Books, has agreed to contribute:
6 Tad Williams Bundles: each bundle includes one copy of Otherland: City of Golden Shadow (hardcover first edition, first printing) plus 1 Advance Review Copy of The Heart of What Was Lost.
6 DAW December Release Bundles: each bundle includes one copy of all DAW December titles: Dreamweaver, Tempest, Alien Nation, and Jerusalem Fire, plus a bonus ARC (dependent on stock).
At any time between now and the end of the fundraiser, donate $5 to Transgender Michigan and email me a copy of the receipt at jchines -at- gmail.com, with the subject line “DAW Raffle Entry.” Each week, I’ll pick at least one donor to win their choice of either a Tad Williams or a December Release bundle from DAW.
You can donate more than $5. For example, donating $20 would get you four entries. However, you can only win a maximum of one of each bundle. This is separate from the individual auctions. Winning an auction does not count as a raffle entry.
