Our ANNUAL HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST is COMING SOON!
On THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31 from 9am-6pm, we are holding our Halloween Costume Contest, OPEN TO ALL AGES. Just come on into the store in your costume! Humans and well-behaved pets welcome! Candy (and fruit-based “candy”) are here for “trick or treating.”
RULES FOR CONTEST:
With permission, we will take your photo & it will go up on our Facebook page (also Instagram). ON FACEBOOK, people need to “Like” their favorite costume. MIDNIGHT IS THE CUTOFF POINT FOR VOTING. We will count the votes up to midnight and the person (or animal) with the most votes wins!
BE SURE TO MONITOR FACEBOOK: We will announce the winner there on November 1. WE DO NOT COUNT “LIKES” ON OUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT.
The Signed Books Auction at Star Cat Books’ website is coming in the next couple of weeks (I’m waiting for the Pro version of the plugin, which will allow me have more control over the entries).
I have books from everyone from Bruce Coville to Neil Gaiman to Doranna Durgin to Lillian Stewart Carl to Eric Flint to Cecilia Tan to Cj Cherryh to Laura Anne Gilman and pretty much everyone in between that you guys know and love. Most are hardcovers, the rest (except for two) are trades. All are in new condition and signed by the authors.
We are emphasizing this is a fundraising event and the bigger the bid the better — do keep in mind that postage needs to be covered by the bid, which is significantly higher for Canada and overseas. We appreciate you keeping that in mind.
I will be running the event pretty much from bed: I’m going in for major neurosurgery to my cervical spine on June 4. The event will run for 4 weeks so everyone can get in bids — and keep on bidding!
I will announce on my FB page, echoed to the Star Cat Books FB page. The auction will be held at the Star Cat Books website:
On Dec 22 and 23, Roberts in Bradford (go to the Post Office and follow the road down around back) is having “Make an Offer” days to help the needy have a good holiday. Don’t forget to go there and see what he has to make your holiday bright!
From now through New Year’s, celebrate the holidays at STAR CAT BOOKS with savings! Buy $20 or more of used books, and with the bag of books you’ll save 10% on your purchase. We’ll throw in a special die-cast pin of a cat for you!
