    Default 2014 Fundraiser Grand Prize (King Inscribed Book) and Rules Announcement

    The 2014 Fundraiser benefiting The Haven Foundation kicked off January 1st and will run through May 19, 2014.
    Last year we raised $12,066! Our goal this year is $12,500.

    We are streamlining this year’s event to make it easier to manage and hopefully increase the donation total.
    Several book dealers have already committed to donating things that will either be used as giveaways, or auctioned off-we are hoping for more once this official announcement is posted.

    100% of the net proceeds from all cash, check, Paypal gift donations and Ebay auctions will be forwarded to The Haven Foundation. (Ebay ad insertion, commission and shipping fees are the only expenses that will be paid from the Gross proceeds).

    Every person who donates $10 or more, or donates an item used for auction or giveaway will receive one entry into our giveaway*. Items for the giveaway have yet to be finalized, but rest assured they will be really exciting and cool! Please use the donation "widget" that is atop each forum page.

    Stephen King has kindly agreed to personalize one of his books to our Grand Prize Winner!**

    Personal Paypal donations must be noted as a “Gift” so that Paypal does not take a commission.
    The Paypal address is Zoidsmith@aol.com.

    Checks must be made out to Jerome Smith (Please don’t make them out to The Haven Foundation as I will have to forward them and they won’t count towards our fund-raising total) and mailed to:

    The Haven Foundation Fundraiser
    C/O Jerome Smith
    PM me for address

    Last years Grand Prize winner received an inscribed Gift Edition of IT

    That is really cool of him to do that. Does he ever go on the site here? How did he know to help out the cause by doing that for a member who wins the grand price?

    Since King's said he's not doing any signings for Mr. Mercedes, I'd like to see a signed trade edition of that one!

    That's a very good idea. Don't quote me, but in the past I believe he has allowed us to choose the book and inscription (more or less). So, if you win it you may be able to call it. Jerome, would have better info in that regard though.

    I think this is an excellent idea for the reason John has listed.

    Since there are probably over 1,500 signed copies of Doctor Sleep floating around out there, I would hope that is not the choice.

    I agree. However, he usually takes like forever to finally sign the damn thing and forward it on. I know he is a busy guy just saying that intentionally delaying the signature may cause additional delays in receiving it back. Taking longer may be okay with most folks IDK just saying is all (I'm bored ).

    Thinking about it a bit, wouldn't it be really cool of him to sign a proof of "Revival" and deliver pre-release? Probably will not happen, but it's fun to speculate.

    I don't believe there are 1,500 inscribed Gift Editions of Doctor Sleep out there. Same goes with an inscribed Gift edition of The Shining.
    However, an inscribed dated Mr. Mercedes would be tres cool; especially if dated before or close to 6/3/2014.

    I of course meant the U.S. trade edition of Doctor Sleep when I referred to the 1,500 signed copies.

    If I had to rank my choices for the Grand Prize, they would be as follows (assuming recent releases were the only option):

    1. Signed/Inscribed copy of the U.S trade 1st edition of Mr. Mercedes dated the day of release.
    2. Signed/Inscribed copy of the SubPress GE of The Shining.
    3. Signed/Inscribed copy of the CD GE of Doctor Sleep.
    4. Signed/Inscribed copy of the GE of Joyland.
    5. Signed/Inscribed copy of the CD slipcased edition of The Dark Man.
    6. Signed/Inscribed copy of the U.S. trade 1st edition of Doctor Sleep (ranked last due to the large quantity that exist out there).

    Ultimately, I know I have no sway over what the prize is, but it is fun to speculate and discuss.

    I know it was done last year, but I'd love an inscribed IT GE....

    I think this is an excellent idea for the reason John has listed.

    Since there are probably over 1,500 signed copies of Doctor Sleep floating around out there, I would hope that is not the choice.
    I don't believe there are 1,500 inscribed Gift Editions of Doctor Sleep out there. Same goes with an inscribed Gift edition of The Shining.
    However, an inscribed dated Mr. Mercedes would be tres cool; especially if dated before or close to 6/3/2014.
    I of course meant the U.S. trade edition of Doctor Sleep when I referred to the 1,500 signed copies.

    If I had to rank my choices for the Grand Prize, they would be as follows (assuming recent releases were the only option):

    1. Signed/Inscribed copy of the U.S trade 1st edition of Mr. Mercedes dated the day of release.
    2. Signed/Inscribed copy of the SubPress GE of The Shining.
    3. Signed/Inscribed copy of the CD GE of Doctor Sleep.
    4. Signed/Inscribed copy of the GE of Joyland.
    5. Signed/Inscribed copy of the CD slipcased edition of The Dark Man.
    6. Signed/Inscribed copy of the U.S. trade 1st edition of Doctor Sleep (ranked last due to the large quantity that exist out there).

    Ultimately, I know I have no sway over what the prize is, but it is fun to speculate and discuss.
    As mentioned before, I am pretty sure that you can call your own edition. That's the way it normally works.
