Book Auction For a Good Cause
Posted on October 13, 2008 Posted by John Scalzi 5 Comments
Author Jim C. Hines is running an auction featuring an ARC of his upcoming book The Stepsister Scheme, which among other things gives you a whole new way to look at Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White. A copy of it just got sent to me and it looks like a lot of fun. The screaming rabble has to wait until January to read it, but if you win the auction then you get it for your very own. And — this is a key part — Jim is donating the proceeds to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, a group which is doing very good work and who are worth your money in any event.
Here’s a direct link to the auction on eBay. And here’s Jim talking about it on his site. He notes that the higher the auction amount goes, the more goodies he’s going throw in, so there’s an additional incentive if you need one. Happy bidding, and I hope you — yes, you — win.
My (first) bid is in.
Thanks, John! And now that I’ve been linked to from the New Improved Whatever, I just know we’ll break the one kajillion dollar mark!!!
I first saw the link in a friend’s LiveJournal, and it’s great to see it here.
I haven’t looked at those stories the same way ever since I read John Moore’s SLAY AND RESCUE.
I bidded and was overbid – good luck to others.
