Hello. The site’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Always feel free to write with questions or concerns.
As a creative, you have two basic tasks. One is to fill out the form for your catalog listing, and the other is to write a story or make some art when the auction is over. That’s it.
Our auctions last for two weeks. This year, it’s from June 11-28, 2021. During that time, people come to the site, look over the offerings in the Auction Catalog, and place a bid (no actual money) by filling out a bid form that goes to me. You have nothing to do at this time.
At the end of the auction, I send an email to the person with the highest bid for each lot. Then they go pay that amount of (actual) money to Random Acts.
The bidders get a “thank you” receipt from RA, and then they forward that email to me.
At the same time, I send the bidder’s specific request for the story or artwork to you, the creative. You then have three months to begin posting the story/artwork. That means authors have to post “Chapter One” and artists have to have at least a rough version available by October 1, 2021. It can be on any site they like, as long as people can get to it. If something comes up and you’re going to be late, that is OK. Just please tell me about it.
If you’d like more details about things, including our Facebook pages and other social media, check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
To play with us, just fill out the form for your catalog listing. Note that there’s no place to say what you won’t do because the bidder can only pick from what you offer, like ordering from a menu. If you have a personal issue with this, email us at Ficfacers@gmail.com, and we’ll work it out. The goal here is to have fun.
And with fun in mind, be assured you will never, ever be asked to write or draw something you haven’t said you’re happy to do. If your catalog listing doesn’t say you’ll do, for example, “Major Character Death,” bidders are not to request it. If they do, we will ask them to change their request before their bid is accepted. We’ve got your back!
If you’re not sure what to say, you can look at some of the listings we have up.
