Six Days Left

Only six days remain on my big Prizeo fundraiser on behalf of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and the Food Depot of Santa Fe.  We've raised some $459,000 as I write, but we're still short of our half-million dollar goal.  So if you have some spare change and/or folding green in your pocket, come help push us over the top with a late surge!


Many of the special incentive prizes have been snapped up... but some remain.

You can still book a brunch with me at San Diego Comicon, a week from Sunday.  (Hand at the Table).

You can still buy my red flame suspenders... yes, the pair I am wearing in the avatar pic above.  (Khaleesi).  They're worn, but they have done good service, and I am sure many of you would look better in 'em than I do.

Also.. some of you may recall that Bantam Spectra changed the cover design of A FEAST FOR CROWS before the book was released, and never used the beautiful Jaime Lannister artwork that Stephen Youll had painted.  But we have some copies of the never-used original covers, and we're offering those as well.   (Stag)


These cover flats have never been used.  A rare collectible, a few of them have turned up on ebay in recent years, sometimes with minimum bids in the thousands of dollars.  And those are unsigned.  Buy one for the wolves, and I'll autograph/ deface it (or not), as you please.  And the money will go to feed the homeless and shelter the wolves... plus buying you more tickets for the grand prize.

The grand prize, of course, remains the same: a trip to Santa Fe from anywhere in the world, a day with me, and a helicopter visit down to Candy Kitchen, New Mexico to see Wild Spirit and visit the wolves.

So join in... and do watch the site closely.  We plan to add a few more last minute incentive prizes on Wednesday, before the fundraiser closes down on Friday.

Not sure if you got around to reading the messages yet, but I donated not too long ago. The Stephen Youll print is quite nice, as is his print of Jon Snow - those two are my favoruite of his "Ice and Fire" work.

Behold that artwork.
Betting everyone wishes they donated now, especially for that AFFC artwork. It is not too late though, I suspect you shall get eight more donations by the time I finish typing this post. I'd love to see some Wild Cards prizes in the mix. They are becoming very popular in the old country.

Thank you again Good Ser for your charitable contributions and may Good Fortune smile upon you.

That cover is beautiful! I've seen it all over the internet, and always wanted it. It's too awesome for words...

Someone has to make sure that you see and hear this - you probably have fans in high places; this would have been at Buckingham Palace.

Who is that in the white armor on that cover? Jaime Lannister?

I wish I had a job doing cover art for your books!

I tried to donate..
..and went to Prizeo. Only to be told that my card was declined and that I have to come visit again later. I know how much money I have in the bank and my card is a debit one. As it is too early for bank hours, I rechecked my statement of July 2014 and there really is an amount enough to cover and still have a balance.

I don't know what to say anymore. It would have been just nice to be able to help the cause no matter how little.

I have to call my bank again when it opens. I already done that but did not leave a message to a machine. I want a person.

Just so you know.

AFFC covers
Just saw that the stretch goal was met - congrats!

I would love to donate and and get a signed AFFC dust-jacket, but $1,000 is more that I can do.

Is there anyone I can contact to see if a lower offer for one of those would be acceptable?

It is unbelievable that so many fans have donated so much to your project.
