Original Manuscripts on Sale

Someone near and dear to me has serious money trouble and needs to buy an affordable used car so she can get to and from work.

To help out, I’ve given her three of my original manuscripts to auction off:

She’s putting these up on eBay—Sympathy for the Devil tomorrow—and (change of plans) as soon as they go up, I’ll post links to each of the auctions.

These are the manuscripts that I sent into Baen, that are marked all over with copyeditor’s marks, and from which the books were typeset. They’re one-of-a-kind items, and I’ll verify that they’re legit.

If you have any questions about the manuscripts, you’re welcome to ask me here. Questions about the auction, of course, go to her.

    Thanks for the offer, Jenne. That was very kind of you. Apparently her friend came through for her with the equipment.
    She told be early yesterday she was going to be able to post it.

    I can’t afford to bid on the manuscripts (I’m hoping they bring in a TON of $$, which I don’t have), but does your friend need help posting the auction? I might be able to help with that, to get the ball rolling. There is a geographic issue, but if anything can be done remotely, let me know!

    I called over the weekend to find out. Apparently, it takes the person who promised to loan the equipment to her to put the auction up remembering to bring it in. 🙁 She’s still waiting.

    what’s it take to spend a little money around here? 😉

    It remains, IMHO, Holly’s finest work. And I’m still in love with Dayne. 🙂

    “God laughed outright. “Anaraphel—I always stack the deck! I play to win…””

    You just hooked me. I’m reading this book.

    i’ve begun reading sympathy for the devil @ baen’s website – i’m up to chapter 30. 🙂

    i’m also seeing some parallels between the small conversation we were having in another thread & this book. you, ma’am, are a very interesting person.

    also, i find incredibly rich the situation at the end of chapter 30: God laughed outright. “Anaraphel—I always stack the deck! I play to win…” indeed, i enjoy the juxtaposition with the scene at the end of the second chapter. so clever. 🙂

    She’s having a hard time getting everything together to upload her pictures (she doesn’t have her own computer or equipment), but should have Sympathy for the Devil up Saturday.

    Wow, I’d have a hard time letting go of any of my Original Manuscripts- if I had any. I’d want to keep them for a keepsake thing. Must be a great sacrifice. Take alot for me to do something like that. Wish your friend my luck.

  • Carlie Oct 25, 2006 @ 18:08

    That’s a fantastic thing to do for a friend. 🙂

  • Chassit Oct 25, 2006 @ 13:19

    It’s times like these when I wish I weren’t broke. Oh well, good luck to your friend, Holly!
