Auction to Benefit Japan

While Lisa and David were in Seattle last week, they signed copies of Heads You Lose at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop, along with promotional boxes including the book that the fine folks at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop are auctioning to benefit Japan.

The Seattle Mystery Bookshop (blog) writes:

Their publisher sent us two promotional boxes. Each includes a hardcover copy of the book (signed and dated), a pack of bookmarks promoting the book, a small easel stand promoting the book (signed by both) and a tin of special M&Ms—red, yellow and blue, the same colors as the book—decorated to tie in with the book (sorry, they're a bit too small for two signatures…). Oh, and the tops of the boxes are signed by Lisa and David as well.

As before, the winning bids will go directly to the American Red Cross to Benefit Earthquake and Tsunami Relief in Japan, checks will be made out to the Red Cross and mailed to us before boxes are shipped out. Since these contain hardcover, we'll start the bidding with the price of a new book, $24.95.

Bids will be accepted until noon, Seattle time, Friday April 15. Yes, that's income tax time but think of the deduction you'll be able to declare in 2012!

To bid, call the Seattle Mystery Bookshop at (206) 587-5737 or email For more information, visit their blog, and to find out more about the shop, visit their website.
