Dear all,

Thank you for the comments and poll votes in yesterday’s post about auctions with last-minute bids. Since the plurality was in favor of no change, and since a strong showing in favor of a specific change would have been necessary for me to feel comfortable changing this year’s procedures after bidding has started, I have decided that this year’s bidding will proceed as usual: the top bidder whose comment is time-stamped at or before 5:00 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, February 23, 2014, will win that auction. I will revisit the issue in the post-auction feedback period for next year.

Thanks again for your thoughtful feedback and assistance. It’s much appreciated.

book cover Item Name & Description: an advance reading copy of Dragon • Princess by S. A. Swann, donated by DAW Books.

Description:

Frank Blackthorne’s most recent heist did not end optimally. The sacrificial virgin survived, but the whole incident left Frank, a respectable career thief, on the run from a kingdom full of evil cultists eager to replace their sacrifice.

So, when the Court Wizard of Lendowyn, Elhared the Unwise, comes to him intending to hire someone to save Lendowyn’s princess from an evil dragon in return for riches, glory, and help with the bloodthirsty cultists problem, Frank is rightfully suspicious. Frank is also not in a position to refuse.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Frank’s rescue fails—in an explosion of spectacularly misapplied magic. When the dust settles, all parties involved find themselves body-swapped. Frank is left stranded in the Princess Lucille’s body, halfway across the kingdom. The understandably angry Princess Lucille finds herself inhabiting the body of the dragon. In order to set things right, they will have to team up and face down thugs, slavers, elvish bookies, knights in shining armor, an evil Queen, and the hordes of the Dark Lord Nâtalc.

This book will be released in mass market paperback on May 6, 2014.

Starting Bid: $5.
