    I can now say,
    “I was a character in a John Grisham novel” or “I was almost a character in a John Grisham novel.”

    Excellent value 🙂

    Love this concept!

    What time on the 17th is this bid ending? And can you explain what a last minute bid is exactly since you don’t show the time it’s ending anywhere? I read where a last minute bid extends the bid for 12 hours but is there not a hard deadline or end date?

    Hi bakercq!

    Apologies, but the original reply to your comment was incorrect. Here are the correct specifics for last-minute bidding on this auction:

    Please note that after an auction has been extended, each new bid sets a new auction end time.

    This particular auction is currently set to end tomorrow, 4/17/24, at 9am ET.

    If someone bids after 9pm ET today, 4/16/24, then the auction end time will be reset to 12 hours after the most recent bid. This is to prevent people from sniping the auction at the last second.

    So if someone bids at 9:01pm ET today, 4/16/24, the new auction end time will be 9:01am ET tomorrow, 4/17/24.

    Other auctions may have shorter extension windows, but in all of our auctions, last minute bids extend the deadline.

    Thanks again for your question!
