Just over a day left in the Worldbuilders auctions

By  |  5 Comments

The Worldbuilders auctions continue apace, but they’re nearing their end. There’s still time to jump in, however. My ms critique is up to an awesome $201.50. And the Tuckerization auction is up to an amazing $302.50!! Remember to check out the other cool auctions, including a number of rare, signed books and graphic novels.

Oh, and check out Pat’s full ms critique auction. It’s up to $3,550!

    Well, that was a nail biter! It went up to $455!

    I wonder how long it will take for worldbuilders to provide you with the details of who won the auction?

      Wow. Congratulations and thanks so much for your generosity. It means a lot.

      I’m sure they’ll turn things around quickly, and in any case I still have a bit of writing to do before Book 3 is done. I’m sure we’ll be in contact soon.

      Thanks again!

        So, did you here the one about the internet auction house?

        So there was the auction, and when it was over, the seller e-mailed the winner asking them to provide
        a contact e-mail address to facilitate the completion of the auction…

        The buyer replied through the auction system, giving their e-mail address.

        However, the clever auction software protects the privacy of the buyer, and automatically replaces all instances of their e-mail address in the message by:

        “contact info – e-mail: ”


        Fortunately the buyer included their website which was not censored, so things eventually got worked
        with lines such as: “yes, the e-mail address specified in your last message to me is
        my correct contact e-mail. Please use that one.”

        heh. So, they should now have the contact info and hopefully should forward it soon.

        Have you heard the saying:

        “the problem with computers is that they do what we tell them to do, not what we
        want them to do…. ”

          oops, that should be replaced the e-mail by:

          “contact info – e-mail: [ email address removed per policy]”

          The actual message used “less than” and “greater than” symbols, but they did not show up as blogging software interprets them as html tags..

          You know, I think I ma going to give up for the day and see if my dog Data (yes, as in star trek TNG 😉 wants to play fetch or something..
