Announcing Con or Bust’s 2017 auction!

I’m pleased to announce that Con or Bust’s annual auction is now accepting items for auction! Bidding will start on Monday, April 24, 2017.

Con or Bust’s annual auction is its principal source of funds for the next twelve months. Anyone can offer something to be auctioned; all you need is an email address. Con or Bust tends to run heavy on books and writing-related offers, for obvious reasons, but crafts, care packages, that good-condition piece of clothing or jewelry that you just never wear — anything legal, practical, and morally and ethically appropriate is welcome. Here’s more information, or you can jump right to the Submit an Auction form. We’ll even host your images for you!

Auction offers must be submitted by Sunday, April 23, 2017, at 9:00 p.m. Eastern (time zone conversions, countdown). This gives me a short window to make sure I approve all posts before bidding goes live on Monday, April 24.

You’ll get an email from [email protected] when your post goes live, which should usually take no more than 24 hours at the very longest. I’ve made a number of back-end improvements to reduce the likelihood that these emails land in spam folders, but please keep an eye out anyway.

Thanks, and please spread the word!

(This post will temporarily be made sticky; please scroll or check out the sidebar to see what’s been submitted!)

Bidding is now open and will end Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown), EXCEPT that last-minute bidding on an item will extend the bidding for that item. More information.
