Auction Gearing Up

The Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research begins Wednesday. Last year Ms. Novak sent me a plaque commemorating my contributions to the auction. By her accounting, Evil Editor has brought it over $14,000.

The items available from Evil Editor this year are below. The books, of course, are available from the EE store, so you may not want to bid above what you can get them for anytime, but keep in mind that I pay the US shipping charges on auction items, so bidding a bit higher than the actual cost could save money. Plus you get the Evil Editor signature, making the books instant collector's items, worth thousands on Ebay after I die.

The editing jobs always go for big money, but even if you don't have big money, that doesn't mean you can't help by bidding early and often in order to start a bidding frenzy among the millionaires out there. In fact, if you bid $200 or less on one of the editing jobs and actually win, and would rather have the money, I will pay your bid just to get out of editing your book. Ideally we want Uncle Scrooge and Richie Rich to see the bidding climbing rapidly, and get into a bidding war that brings in enough to cure diabetes overnight.

Also, while the auctions for most items last throughout the month of May, the top item on the list below is a 1-day auction ending at 8:59 PM on Thursday, May 2. If you want it, don't dilly-dally.

Are these cartoons in the book?

As I'm broke, the best I can offer is to rally the bidding. Hopefully it helps!

"not exactly what I had in mind...." But it's FABULOUS!

Hmm, so the by-the-end-of-the-auction edit has no word limit? Are you mad?
