Don’t miss out on the special charity auction for the original manuscript for the Young Jedi Knights: Darkest Knight signed by authors Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta. All proceeds will be going to the Pearl Foundation. The auction ends on December 1st. Winners will receive the original annotated production manuscript of Young Jedi Knights: The Darkest Knight which includes editorial and production marks throughout, hand written by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta.
These are the last-round polishes and approvals, different word choices, alterations for continuity. As a bonus, this package also includes a signed first-edition copy of the original publication — these books are themselves very hard to find and regularly sell for more than $100 on eBay. This is unique and will never be offered again. Both manuscript and the book are autographed by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, and can be personalized to the winner, upon request.
