New for 2014: Door Prizes!

I have a stack of books I've acquired from various sources throughout the year, and have decided what better way to share the wealth than to use them as "door prizes".

So for this year, each day from July 14th through the 19th, everyone who places a bid on that day's items will be entered into the drawing. That means even if you don't have a winning bid, you may not leave the auction empty handed!

Prizes will include:

Copper Girl by Jennifer Allis Provost
Signed copy of The Memory of After by Lenore Appelhans
Fair Coin by E. C. Myers
Outsourcing Grandma Sylvia by Phil Braverman
Corridor of Darkness by Patrick W. O'Bryon

Pens for Paws July 14-19, 2014

The auction is barely a month away, and new items will (hopefully) be coming in fast and furious in the next weeks! Don't forget, you can always see the updates as they go up on the Items Featuring in 2014 Auction page.

And you can still donate items through July 7. More on what kinds of donations we're looking for can be found on the Donate page above.

Also, now that Angelica has a book coming out, her schedule is even more crammed. The past two auctions have been entirely her baby, but she'd love to have some help this time around. We're looking for folks to help with individual items: you'd be responsible for an item, from posting it all the way through the closing and winner notification/delivery.

The time commitment would require composing and scheduling the post, and then you wouldn't need to do anything again until it's time for that item to close. Then you'll need to determine the winner (based on bids and time stamp) and send them a followup email (a template will be provided). An email goes to the donor, too, to let them know to expect the pages for critique or where to send their item. That's it!

If you're interested in volunteering, please shoot us an email at pensforpawsauction (at) yahoo (dot com).

Otherwise, just watch the page for new items, and retweeting our @pensforpaws news is always appreciated! Thank you
