Once again, this will go way beyond what's in my bank account but I have to try. I mean, it's ABBY!ReplyDelete
You guys, can I just say, Abby is my editor, and SHE. IS. FIERCE.ReplyDelete
Will probably go beyond my budget, too. Still -ReplyDelete
Really want to show her project we talked about when it was just at the idea stage ...ReplyDelete
$225 *wishing on stars*ReplyDelete
One more try ...ReplyDelete
$275 *still wishing*ReplyDelete
Abby Ranger is one of the BEST editors I know--this is invaluable peoples!ReplyDelete
See, people, Joanna SPEAKS TRUTH! Abby worked on SHIVER, by Maggie Stiefvater, and now I'm lucky enough to call her my editor and she is one of the nicest, sharpest people I've met in the biz.ReplyDelete
I believe it! I'll go as far as I can.ReplyDelete
Ohh, this prize is awesome!ReplyDelete
Who wins between Blee and Melissa?ReplyDelete
Ooh, it's a tie. Yikes! Congratulations to whoever gets it!ReplyDelete
THE BIDDING IS CLOSED.ReplyDelete
Well, crap. I cannot award this prize to both of you, as Abby has not agreed to do two winners...
This is the first time this has happened, if you can believe that.ReplyDelete
We were saving the best for last ;)ReplyDelete
I would love to have it but if Melissa is okay with a coin toss or something, so am I. I'm easy, so however you guys decide Victoria is fine with me.ReplyDelete
I have to wake up early to go to work, so I'll check back in the morning to see how it's decided.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the late night bidding fun, wow, that was exciting!!
Here's how I think it must work. Blee's bid must be taken as the winner because technically it came first, and so Melissa's, as a duplicate bid, cannot count. Does this make sense to both parties?ReplyDelete
Sadly, yes. Congrats, Blee! Thank you, Victoria, for all your hard work!ReplyDelete
Thank you ALL for helping make this a simply amazing auction.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. You were all great competitors Melissa, Valerie, sbjames, and Janice.ReplyDelete
