Something for everybody!
For all you booklovers, foodies, writers and pop culture lovers, check out author Brenda Novak's annual auction to benefit diabetes research. The auction is going on until the end of May and has some fabulous items up for grabs. I have a set of Daphne Martin books and a first chapter critique on the auction block.
Other items up for bid (do I sound like a game show host?) are movie and TV posters signed by the cast (we're talking about such hits as Pirates of the Caribbean, Lost and *gasp* Breakfast at Tiffany's autographed by Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard), gift baskets, jewelry, artwork and even vacations. There are raffles, too, as well as the opportunity to be mentored by Brenda Novak and have your work submitted to her agent. Several editors and agents are offering critiques and evaluations. Some conference and convention packages are available, and there are quite a few promotional and networking opportunities to bid on. I keep getting drawn back over, but I'm trying to keep away because I want EVERYTHING! :-)
I told you "something for everybody," right? See what YOU can find.
To all our Moms, "Happy Mother's Day!" :)
