auction bidding note: subscriptions to new comments

Originally posted at Con or Bust by Kate Nepveu. All comments must be made there.

If you subscribed to new comments on an auction post in the last little while (ballpark of 9:30-10:45 p.m. Eastern), there’s a chance your subscription might have gotten eaten by my trying to debug a problem. To be sure that you’re subscribed if you want to be, go to the post and, down below the commenting form, click on the word “subscribe” where it says “Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. You can also subscribe without commenting.” Enter your email address, and then you’ll definitely be subscribed (if you were already, it won’t tell you that, but it also won’t send you two copies of every comment).


Apologies for not noticing this problem before bidding went live. Please let me know if you have any questions or problems.

Form 4 Entry 152 Fileupload 1 Form 4 Entry 152 Fileupload 2Item Name and Description: Name a character in Aliette de Bodard’s forthcoming THE HOUSE OF BINDING THORNS (sequel to THE HOUSE OF SHATTERED WINGS, due out April 2017).


Your chance to have someone of your choice feature in fractured post-magical-war Paris! I’ll also send you a signed ARC of the book when they come in.


You will be able to provide the first name of the character, and maybe the last name as well (within reason). I may need to slightly alter it to fit into the setting of the book, though I will do my best to insert it as specified. Your character may not survive for long, though!


Starting Bid: 20$


Other Notes: The book is is being revised now, so you would need to provide the name before the end of June 2016.


Bidding is now open and will close on Sunday, June 5, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
