The Last Week of the 2014 Book Auction (3 of 3)

Well, it has been a surprisingly successful and exciting endeavour so far, so let's get on with the final event.
LOT 7 - BRIGHTWILL PRE-RELEASE MANUSCRIPT

For the second and last time, a manuscript of Brightwill is up for auction. This is a fantasy novel by Randolph Lalonde. It will come signed by Randolph Lalonde and one of his editors, Sylvie Lafontaine. The picture is a clever mock-up of what you'll be receiving, since the finished product does not exist yet.

The manuscript will come with a special cover page, an interior signed page exactly like the one above, and will ship after October 14, 2014 but at least two weeks before release. Only three of these manuscripts will be made.

This, like every other unique item auction, will come with a one-of-a-kind letter thanking you, and telling you about the item you've won. In the case of this item, I'll talk about where the ideas for Brightwill came from, and about my experience writing it.

 LOT 8 - SPINWARD FRINGE BROADCAST 1 & 2 SIGNED PROOF
Up for auction is my original proof copy of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 1 & 2: Resurrection and Awakening. Proof copies are ordered from printing companies to ensure all the elements of the design and formatting of a book are correct before the go-ahead for larger production and regular printing is given. This is the proof copy that I ordered before the longest running version of this book went to print and was available through Amazon for over two years, making it a unique piece.

The regular production of this book is out of print  since a new edit will be released in 2015. It has lived quietly on my personal shelf since it arrived, mostly unread, and in great condition. I've signed it for you, and I'll write a unique letter to accompany your book once you've won.

 LOT 9 - COMPLETE SET OF VERSION 1 OF THE SPINWARD FRINGE SERIES
This is a one of a kind set of (mostly) Proof copies from my shelf. These have been in my possession since original publication. As a bonus I’ve included a misprint of Spinward Fringe Broadcast 5: Fracture in the set (1 of 14). All but Broadcast 5 and 6 are out of print. Some of these books have major shelf wear, there are detailed photos on the EBay listing page so you can see for yourself. I've signed these for you, and bagged them individually in acid free plastic.

What is a proof copy?
Proof copies are ordered from printing companies to ensure all the elements of the design and formatting of a book are correct before the go-ahead for larger production and regular printing is given. These proof versions represent the correct versions of the books that went into regular production for years.

The books included in this set are:
 First Light Chronicles: Freeground (1 of 7 printed),
 First Light Chronicles: Limbo (Proof),
 First Light Chronicles: Starfree Port (Proof),
 Spinward Fringe Broadcast 1: Resurrection (Proof),
 Spinward Fringe Broadcast 2: Awakening (Proof),
 Spinward Fringe Broadcast 3: Triton (Proof),
 Spinward Fringe Broadcast 4: Frontline,
 Spinward Fringe Broadcast 5: Fracture (Proof), and misprint version proof,
Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments (Proof).

When you win I'll write a unique letter congratulating you. I'll also write about the Spinward Fringe series as well, something that has been a passion of mine for years now. The contents of the letter are yours to keep a secret, or to share with other readers. I won't be reprinting the contents.

From my shelf to yours, good luck.

Here's a link to the schedule and terms and conditions.


Thank you so much for participating, and for spectating. You've really helped me raise funds for a move that may happen much sooner than I'd like, and this auction has been an exciting event.
