I encourage all authors that can find the time to sign up, and all readers who can afford to bid to participate. Remember that it's open to all fandoms. I'm in a constant state of amazement over the generosity of those I have meet through the internet. I honestly can't think of a better group of people. In the immortal words of the Highlander, you all make my heart glad!
Here's a list of the authors that have already signed up.
I'm offering a Doctor Who story for the winning bidder on my auction once it's posted. I'd be more than happy to print out a hard copy, bind and sign it, and mail to the winner if they'd like that.
I look at it this way, even if no one bids, at least I can say I tried to help out a worthy cause! Even if you can't write or bid on a story, you can always help spread the word on your journal. I encourage all those that can participate, please do!
I'm sure there will be more auctions in the future because, as we all know, cancer treatment without having insurance is no cheap affair. Check the website for new information and new auctions in the future if you can't make the deadlines this time around.
