  6. 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.

  11. THE BIDDING IS CLOSED.

    Well, crap. I cannot award this prize to both of you, as Abby has not agreed to do two winners...

  14. 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.

  15. I have to wake up early to go to work, so I'll check back in the morning to see how it's decided.

    Thanks so much for the late night bidding fun, wow, that was exciting!!

  16. 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?

  17. Sadly, yes. Congrats, Blee! Thank you, Victoria, for all your hard work!
