Instead, this week, I’m going to do a plug for author, Brenda Novak’s Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research. Brenda’s son has diabetes and she started the auction 10 years ago to help raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Research. Over the ten years she’s raised over two million dollars for diabetes research. The Auction goes for the month of May.-5-14Authors, publishers, agents, writers, friends and others contribute awesome gifts for the auction. You can get condos for vacation, Coach purses, jewelry, critiques from authors and editors, meet authors and agents for breakfast and lunches, and so much more. There are special daily deals and raffles.
I contribute a Canadian basket and I’d love to have people bid on it. I cover the postage to mail it to whoever wins.
I also bid on a few items. Sometimes I get them, sometimes i don’t. I managed lunch with one of my favorite authors, Karen Rose. She’s a lovely lady.
So please, at least check out the site and some of the many items listed.http://brendanovak.auctionanything.com/Home.taf
And if anyone else has an item listed, or has had experience bidding on an item, I’d love to hear about it.
