Signed Books Auction & Fundraiser coming soon!

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:

We have a fundraiser going

We have a fundraiser going on Facebook, as well as the ability to donate here (note the DONATE button on the right side of our front page — there is also a text link if the button doesn’t work in your browser).

The Facebook fundraiser is at this link — we appreciate anything you can contribute to keep us running in this economic clime, plus the current small business climate in our small town (several stores empty now) and a slow summer and fall. We are doing really well so far this holiday season, and that along with the fundraiser should put us into winter pretty well.

We *will* be holding our usual winter auction of signed books to get us through the bleak Vermont season, but this year we’re doing it with a twist: instead of just Neil Gaiman books, we’ll be bringing you signed books from famous authors of all different genres. A little bit for EVERYONE! Watch this space for announcements as we get closer to running the auction.
