Con or Bust’s new home, with easier auction participation!

I’m very excited to welcome you to Con or Bust’s new home on its own domain.

Con or Bust helps fans of color/non-white fans attend SFF cons (more information). It is funded through donations and an annual online auction, which in 2013 will begin on Saturday, February 9, at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time and end on Sunday, February 24, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

Thanks to Con or Bust’s new home, all you need is an email address to offer things to be auctioned or to bid on auctions. You may submit auction offers now, or learn more about the auction.

Con or Bust will also be taking requests for assistance to attend SFF cons in April, May, and June 2013 from February 15-25, 2013.

Please spread the word!

Thanks to Philip Weiss for writing the custom plugin to make the auction work (using this guest post plugin as a starting point).
