Moony here. I have been back from the hospital for a few days but my life basically consists of taking medication, sleeping, and having someone help me go to the bathroom. It’s not fun, haha.
So I have left the auction in Roane’s capable hands, and all I can say is DAMN. Y’all are some incredibly, incredibly generous people. The authors, for stepping up and offering such wonderful stories, and so many of you offering multiple ones; and the bidders, for bidding way above and beyond even my wildest imagination.
When I had this idea, I genuinely expected maybe ten or twenty people to participate, thought maybe we’d raise a few hundred dollars. I cannot even comprehend the fact that we raised enough to buy a brand-new damn car.
Considering that the OTW’s projected running costs next year top seventy thousand dollars, I can’t begin to pretend that we’ve single-handedly saved anyone’s bacon here. But together, we have made an enormous difference.
Way to go, everyone!
