The auction of the signed Amanda Quick advanced copy was so successful that we’re going to try it again.
Lisa Lutz and David Hayward were in on Wed the 6th to sign their joint project, Heads You Lose! (Putnam hc, $24.95). Their publisher sent us two promotional boxes. Each includes a hardcover copy of the book (signed and dated), a pack of bookmarks promoting the book, a small easel stand promoting the book (signed by both) and a tin of special M&Ms – red, yellow and blue, the same colors as the book - decorated to tie in with the book (sorry, they’re a bit too small for two signatures…). Oh, and the tops of the boxes are signed by Lisa and David as well.
As before, the winning bids will go directly to the American Red Cross to Benefit Earthquake and Tsunami Relief in Japan, checks will be made out to the Red Cross and mailed to us before boxes are shipped out. Since these contain hardcover, we’ll start the bidding with the price of a new book, $24.95.
Bids will be accepted until noon, Seattle time, Friday April 15. Yes, that's income tax time but think of the deduction you'll be able to declare in 2012!
Two boxes! Two Winners!
Well, three - the people of Japan!
