Hey, it’s time for the annual CON OR BUST fundraising auction.
I’ve participated in the past, and shall do so again this year… although I have not yet decided what to offer for auction.
I’m thinking, hand-bound blank book — I haven’t made one in quite a while. But if I run out of time, I may have to default to the old reliable autographed copies of my novels…
Here’s the official announcement for the auction:
I am pleased to announce this year’s auction to support Con or Bust, which helps fans of color/non-white fans attend SFF conventions. Bidding starts Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 12:01 a.m. EST (GMT -5) and ends Sunday, February 25, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST. You may post auction offers and make donations now.
For more details, please see these updated posts explaining how to:
- make an auction offer;
- browse auctions;
- bid on an auction;
- pay for an auction or donate; and/or
- request assistance.
As a reminder, Con or Bust is now helping fans attend all cons of their own choosing, not just WisCon as in the past. (Requests for assistance to attend cons in April, May, and June 2012 will be taken from February 15 through 25; see the “request assistance” link for more details.) Because the demand for assistance is greater than before, please spread the word widely!
