Okay, so...I sort of swore to myself that I wasn't going to auction any of the ARCs of The Drowning Girl: A Memoir, at least not before the book's release. Not sure why I did, but I did. However, turns out we went over budget on the shoot for the trailer, and there's still more to be shot for the final version, and no way I'm going to do a second Kickstarter for the project.

So. We're going to auction a few things related to the book, beginning with the ARC of the novel. Here's your chance to read the novel well in advance of everyone else, and to own a collectible ARC filled with uncorrected sentences! The platypus, dodo, and mothmen compel you to bid, kittens! Also, I only received three copies of the ARC, and it's probable I'll never sell the other two, at least not for a few millenia. I'll sign it and personalize it, as the winner of the auction wishes. The auction begins at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST. So...until then, the link below won't work.

Wow, Peter Straub calls it your "masterpiece". I would not have thought that my anticipation could have been any more heightened.

Apropos of nothing, if I can ever write an opening sentence as good as;

The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.

Or;

The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone.

Or;

In a hole, in the ground, there lived a hobbit.

Then I shall feel that I have salvaged something from the fine-grained wreckage of all I could have been.
