Every year, during the month of May, this generosity of spirit is in full effect as romantic suspense writer, Brenda Novak hosts her annual auction to search for a cure of diabetes. With the help of the writing community, Novak, whose youngest son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, managed to raise 1 million dollars last year.
This year's auction is a writer's dream, with agent and editor evaluation up for grabs, mentorships and meetings with your favorite writers, agents, and editors. For readers, you can get signed books or lunch with an author. But it is so much more, from romantic getaways in Lake Tahoe to meeting Celine Dion in person -and, hello, royal wedding fever, a replica of a dress worn by Kate Middleton -sorry, Her Grace, the Duchess of Cambridge. :)
So what are you waiting for? It's a good cause, and you might walk away with something great!
