Holiday Auction Update

I'd like to pass along how grateful I am for the very generous bidding going on for my Darkyn novels auction, which is being offered as part of the huge holiday auction to benefit our blogpal, author Jo Leigh. The StarDoc books and Corn & Beans quilt auctions have also brought in a very healthy number of bids. I suspect some of you out there are responsible, and I really appreciate your support -- this is a very worthy cause.

I'm about finished with the fabric of inspiration quilted book tote I'm making for the winner of the Darkyn novels auction. Will post a pic of the tote tomorrow once all the finishing work is done. The seven books are also assembled and ready to be signed and shipped:

(About the caption -- I sent this photo as proof to a friend who also writes series novels. We both started writing our series at the same time, and had a small charity bet on who would finish theirs first. I won, thus the crowing.)

With the books and the tote I will also include for the winner of the Darkyn novels auction a printed copy of my rapidly upcoming e-book release, Master of Shadows (printed by me on bond paper and placed in a three-ring binder.)

If you haven't had a chance to check out the current auction list, do take a minute to click over and have a look -- there are a bunch of new items that have been listed that would make terrific holiday gifts for yourself or the readers or writers in your life.

  1. *bounces* What nut job bid...? Sorry. Couldn't resist. Inside joke.

    Out of curiosity, why is it called a corn and beans quilt? I could find neither corn nor beans anywhere in the pics.

    Lol. You're incorrigible, lady.

    "Corn and beans" is the name for the traditional patchwork pattern used in this quilt. Quilt makers and collectors use these pattern names as a kind description shorthand, so that if someone says "tumbling block" or "seven sisters" or "pickle dish" we know what patchwork pattern was used.

  3. Incorrigible? On a good day, Emmy is incorrigible.

    Good for us. On a good day for her? What's incorrigible to the nth degree and then multiple by 2.2 million?

    And I still want that bag. However, unlike the nutjob, I'm going to pretend otherwise.
