Today, April 10th, would have been Mike Ford's 50th birthday.

In an instance of truly beautiful serendipity, the ARCs of The Mirador just arrived, one of which, if you recall, I am going to auction off for the John M. Ford Memorial Book Endowment.

Here's the plan.

I will make a post opening the auction on Thursday (April 12th), and it will run for twenty-four hours, closing at the same time on Friday (April 13th). Bids will be made in the comments to that post. On Friday, I will make a second post, closing the auction, and then the winner can email me their address and how they want the ARC inscribed. (And, yes, the ARC will be hand-corrected by the author--you can also tell me whether you want the corrections and inscription in Noodler's Nightshade, Forest Green, or Le Couleur Royale.) I send them the ARC; they send the JMFMBE a check.

Everybody wins.

Happy birthday, Mike, wherever you are.

P.S. Please, tell the world about the auction! Non-LJ commenters will be allowed to bid, so long as they SIGN THEIR COMMENTS and INCLUDE AN EMAIL ADDRESS.

By a happy coincidence, I get paid on Friday. I'm sure my landlady will understand...

Looking forward to giving it a go- never had a chance at anything this cool before.

ARC stands for Advance Reader Copy right?

Oh, and do you have to be living in America to bid?

Sweet. ^_^ I'm looking forward to it. :D Always wondered how a published author did these sort of proofs. *Ponders whether it's like a me style, or otherwise, chuckling.* I'm joinin' in on the auction. ^^
