    It's the first to market (auction), and it's for a fundraiser, so I hope it will do well. Already over $300 on a Saturday debut!

    Killer auction, and it seems to have garnered some attention already!

    I figured I'd mention this now for future reference:

    For those who snag a Gwendy's Button Box ARC from a reviewer or wherever, you'll want to note that there are approximately 15 to 20 little changes between that version of the text and the final file I sent to the printer for the 1st Edition, 1st Printing hardcover. Mostly some word choice changes by the authors, but also corrections of a few anachronisms. (Meaning the anachronisms that DO remain are there because the authors wanted them there!).

    Very hard to not give into temptation and read the book, but I listed it as new and unread.

    Great auction.

    Have to say I miss the funding thermometer (or whatever it is) and the fundraising hype. Hope it's doing well (I still need to contribute).

    I believe 150 copies were printed for reviewers.

    There is also a "VIP Review Copy" that I'm hoping to donate as well. It's the same text, but I got to try something with the cover that I've wanted to do FOREVER. There are only 20 of those, I believe. It's still on the way for the printer, but I'll post a photo in the Cemetery Dance thread when it arrives.

    I don't normally collect proofs, but am trying to get all the versions of this one to commemorate it being my first King S/L purchased direct from the publisher. I guess there's one more I need to try and save up for!

    Also VERY interested to see what alternative cover you came up with!

    I look forward to seeing this alternate ARC. Any plans for an LRB ARC or is that VIP edition?
