Living for the Revel

The Best Thing I Can Give: Time

As per a suggestion on my LJ...

Item Name: Lunch with Cat
Starting Bid: $15
Auction Ending: Closed
Notes: If bids go high enough, I would consider offering two of these.

My name is Catherynne M. Valente. I've written six novels. Some of them have won awards like the Tiptree and the Mythopoeic Award. I'm generally personable and a good date. So what am I putting up for auction?

A lunch alone with me at an upcoming con, be it Penguicon, Readercon, Worldcon, etc. Or, if you can't make the cons (I can't make Wiscon myself this year) the same lunch at one of my tour stops over the next few months.

Obviously I will pick up the tab for lunch. You can pick the restaurant, anything you like, within reason. We can talk publishing or not, as you please. It's a chance to get some bonding time in away from the bustle of cons, to establish faces and names and a good memory, as opposed to a flash in a crowd.

I still say I am probably not awesome enough to offer this with real results. But some folks said they would bid, so here it is.
