    Congrats to Dave!

    Maybe I missed it somewhere, but how about someone providing details about WHAT exactly he won...

    Stephen King has agreed to personalize and sign a book for our Grand prize drawing winner!

    We have a very special book that once personalized by King will likely be a one of a kind.
    I won't reveal the book yet, but here are the details for the Grand Prize drawing:


    Anyone who donates $10 (Paypal, cash, check, accepted auction item) or more to our 2011 Haven Foundation Fundraiser receives one entry into the drawing. The Paypal widget at the top of each screen is the easiest way to donate, use the drop down box next to the "Give" button to choose $10 or more. You may donate more than $10, and you may donate more than once (and we would appreciate it), but for the Grand Prize ONLY, the limit is one entry per person. Cutoff to donate and be entered is 11:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time May 19, 2011.

    For our other giveaway items it will be a weighted drawing. EVERY $10 donation puts the donors name in the drawing one time. If you make seven $10 donations, your name will go in the drawing pool seven times.
    Staff members, as well as owners and employees of Specialty King publishers are ineligible for the Grand Prize, but can be entered into the regular drawing. Patrick and I are ineligible for any all prizes.

    More news to come.....


    Sneak Preview:

    Glenn Chadbourne did full page original art on TWO pages of a Cemetery Dance Gift edition of Full dark, No Stars. He also dated and numbered the art. We have higher resolution pics coming, but here is a sneak preview. (BTW, try and decipher the writing on the page next to the rats head on the second remarque).

    Are you talking about being a character in one of his novels? He did that for Cell before it was published, with the winner's money being donated to charity.

    I will likely draw the winners for the other prizes tomorrow or Thursday. I had surgery today and my pain killers keep me a bit fuzzy.
    FYI, rather than create over 200 physical tickets I am assigning each person a number/group of numbers in a spreadsheet. I will then use an online random integer generator to "pull" the winning numbers.

    Thanks everyone , I am floored at winning the grand prize. Will definately post pics when I receive the book. Thanks to Jerome and everyone else here involved, thanks to Brian and Cemetery Dance, Glenn Chadbourne and of course Stephen King (feel like I am making an Oscar speech). I am trully honored to win such a fantastic prize.
