So the Fun Begins!

Folks! The Baker's Dozen Agent Auction winning entries will post THIS FRIDAY. 

Can you believe it?

So, here are some things:
  • Winners: Please remember that I am happy to make changes in your entries.  If you don't like the way something looks, or if you find a typo, or anything else makes your stomach heave a little, please email me right away at facelesswords(at)gmail(dot)com with your post number in the subject line. I will fix your entry for you.
  • Everyone: I will post critiquing instructions on Thursday.  That'll be your opportunity to ask questions prior to the going-live.
  • BD Entrants Whose Entries Were Not Chosen: You will have an opportunity to submit your entry for public critique after the Baker's Dozen has closed.  Please note that all several-hundred of you will not be accommodated (because, yanno, there are just too many of you).  Details after the auction.
  • Now's the time to TALK UP THE AUCTION! Tell your friends, blog about it, tweet, post info on your favorite writing communities.  Things get really breathless around here on auction day, and it won't be fair to keep all the fun to ourselves!
  • Two of our agents have had to drop out of the auction for personal reasons. BUT WE STILL HAVE 15 GLORIOUS AGENTS!
  • Some of you have sent donations in the past week.  Thank you.  (And, really, there is no adequate way to thank almost-perfect-strangers when they send you money simply to bless you. I'm not sure I'll ever be really good at this "receiving" thing.)
I'm excited!  And I'm pretty sure you are, too.  It's going to be a fun next-ten-days!


  1. Looking forward to it! Which two agents had to drop out?

  2. I can't wait. Congrats again to all the winners!

  3. Where do I find my entry so I can check it for typos, etc.?

  4. I can't believe it's already happening! Can't wait to see this year's batch of entries!

  5. Anon - the entries go up on Friday. Good luck!

  6. I'm so excited! Deep breaths. Good luck everyone!

  7. I every time spent my half an hour to read this blog's articles all the time along with a cup of coffee.
    Also visit my web page ; clean my pc

  8. Omgoodness, I just threw up a little. Seriously, I am soooo nervous!! EEK!

  9. Though I'm not in the auction, I look forward to gaining some perspective, while reading through everyone's entries.
    Good luck, writers! What a wonderful experience for everyone involved.

  10. There are lots of others which may be valuable to an individual requiring aid. Women's Air Jordans: On the first time launch of Air Jordan's Women collection, Nike promised to deliver the same quality and commitment to this range that it had shown previously in men shoe line.

  11. The big claim to fame with the Tri-Star is that they have a process called "Cyclonic Action" that forces the air to pass over the dirt in the bag. Now that is a style that is positive to be welcome at some of the finest dining establishments in Manhattan or Beverly Hills, ideal?
