I am currently the high bidder. No regrets at all. I read his request and want to do something to help. I am not "rich" by any means. I work two jobs to pay the bills (always have). But seeing how this could help make someone's life a little easier is a no brainer to me. I work a full time job and then bartend at night. Picking up many extra shifts to pay for this is going to be worth it though! This site and SK have gone above and beyond to help one of their own. I hope the bid stands, but I have a feeling someone else who has way more means than me is going to swipe this. as I stated before, I have been lucky enough to meet Mr. King, my personal hero 15 times and have every 1st edition book signed by Mr. King. This is the only one I am missing. The cause is the only reason I am willing to pay this price though!

I have read 90% of his books and with age and poor eyesight, I am now listening to the last 10% on audio. the book I am currently listening to is always my favorite. Just got done with bag of bones, listening to Liseys Story. I love the way he can tell a story!
...I am keeping my fingers crossed for you, and if you should win-I will get it mailed out ASAP, though with the holidays it might be a bit slower than I want the ship out to be....

An exquisite example of modern days living, told by a wonderful new writer 'sheemus' who delves into the delicious art of failing in love with profound punctuation, and never ending sentences that seem to melt of into the sunset .

Sorry, roseanne.


Thank You! Very disappointed, but happy to help "raise" the bid. It appears two of us were bidding, but I was so busy at the bar, I couldn't bid! It was fun and for a great cause! I just knew I was going to win! Love the "Roseanne" trivia from above too! SK, Roseannebarr, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars are my favorites (in that order!). SK is on fire with his recent releases. LOVED FINDERS KEEPERs! Really liked the ending!

Thanks! Knowing I had to work, I bid up to $1421. Now that I look back on it, I wish I bid $1500. But I don't think that would have been enough! I was really after Marsha's signature! That has to be rarer than SK's!
I feel so bad for you... thank you so much for your wonderful contribution to helping out our dear, dear friend. You have been so gracious throughout and have taken this very well, I do hope you will be able to one day add this to your collection.

I'd be happy to send you my signature. ;) Seriously, though, I'm sorry you didn't win but thank you for helping to raise so much money for Patrick. It's warmed my heart to see the support for someone who is part of our on-line family.

Will you accept BCF camping vouchers and KMaRt credit?

Or how about a fine collection of jams I received, along with socks and bonds underwear -

Fair swap I reckon ...
