Every year, the fabulous Brenda Novak runs an on-line auction to raise funds for diabetes research. There’s an amazing number of cool items up for bid, including fantastic gift baskets, vacations, jewelry, and even lunch with your favorite author! You can check out all the different categories here.
There are also specially designated categories for readers and aspiring writers, offering things like book baskets and author critiques. As in the past, I’m happy to offer a critique of a manuscript – but this year I’m doing something different. I’m teaming up with my critique partner, bestselling contemporary romance writer Debbie Mason, to offer a critique of the first 30 pages of a romance manuscript. The person with the winning bid will get two critiques for the price of one!
So, all you aspiring writers, check it out! You can also look at all the other critiques offered by a dazzling array of authors, editors, and agents. It’s a really cool way to get feedback on your manuscript and donate to a good cause, too!
