BRENDA NOVAK AUCTION

It's the time of year when the entire romance community come together to support inspirational fundraiser,  Brenda Novak, raise loads of dosh for research into a cure for Diabetes.

A lot has happened in recent years, with an artificial pancreas undergoing tests right now to help control the condition. But a cure is the aim and Brenda has raised over a million dollars for research into a condition that almost certainly affects someone your know. In my case, it's the best beloved.

You can help by bidding for signed books from your favourite authors. There are unbelievable offers from authors you love. There will be jewellery, books, eReaders, a ton of stuff that you'd buy anyway.

Then there are the things that you can't buy anywhere. Would you like to have a famous author write your query letter? Or have an award winning author critique your Golden Heart entry? There's fabulous PR opportunities for writers, wonderful treats from writers for readers.

Now is the time to get that Kindle Touch you've been promising yourself.

 Or check out this fabulous  reader gear and writer wear from Jackie Braun.

Whatever you do bid for something, no matter how small.

Hi Liz:

Do you happen to know if they have any Pink Pantser Panties? I think they would really sell! The logo would be a pink panther flying a Sopwith Camel while reading a Blaze and not looking where he is going. I’m ready to bid!

BTW: I just have to win that "Plotter" shirt to wear at the ACFW convention in Dallas! Of course, I'm not sure it is a shirt. Do you know what it is? : )

P.S. Don’t miss this auction! It always has some of the best bargains in the world! It’s a great way to augment your author autograph collection.

They're jammies, Vince. Might be a touch small... :)

Thank you so much for helping us to spread the word about the auction and what you and the other finalists are auctioning off. We appreciate your participation and generosity. My name is Danita and I’m a volunteer on the auction and your help in getting the word out generates more shoppers and visits to the auction website. We have added two new features to this year’s auction. We know that there are some shoppers who are unable to bid on items but do want to contribute to the cause so we have added a store which will allow them to purchase items and the proceeds go towards the auction the link is http://www.cafepress.com/brendanovaksonlinediabetesauction. We have also added a blog which will have updates of the auction, items that are currently being spotlighted, live chats, and much more. The link to visit is Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Auction Store. Thank you again for helping us to make a difference.
