Reilly's Dream Horror Book Auctions - April 14th - 21st

Tomorrow, on Saturday April 14th, we will begin our Reilly's Dream horror book auctions on eBay to raise funds for my daughter Reilly's People to People Student Ambassador trip to Europe in June.

Some of the most respected authors in the horror genre have donated signed books solely for these special fund-raising auctions. During the past few weeks, we have recieved dozens of rare and out-of-print books signed by the following folks:

Joe R. Lansdale
Brian Keene
J.F. Gonzalez
Jack Ketchum
Kealan Patrick Burke
William Ollie
Ronald Malfi
Ramsey Campbell
F. Paul Wilson
Michael Knost
Lisa Morton
Ray Garton
James Newman
Brett McBean
Maurice Broaddus
Gord Rollo
Bryan Smith
Rick Hautala
T.M. Wright
John R. Little
Jonathan Maberry
Gene O'Neill
Mark Justice
Ronald Kelly (me!)
Scott Nicholson
Nancy A. Collins
Kelli Owen
Nate Southard
Jason Brannon
Keith Minnion

I will begin listing these books on eBay at 6:00 pm Central Time on the 14th. Each auction will have a 7-day time period (to allow folks time to gather funds if necessary). Also, I'll be adding more books throughout the following week, since I have quite a few donations rolling in from the good folks at Cemetery Dance, Bad Moon Books, Overlook Connection, and Thunderstorm Books.

I'll post the auction links to interested bidders here at Southern-Fried & Horrified on Saturday night. All proceeds from these auctions will got toward Reilly's airfare, accommodations, meals, etc. while she studies and tours in France, Italy, Switzerland, and Austria for three weeks.

If you'd like to hook up with some awesome books and help a great cause in the process, be sure to check back here tomorrow night for futher details!
