The bidding has begun!
I wanted to let everyone know about a fun auction which benefits a worthy cause. Author Brenda Novak's 5th Annual On-line Auction for Diabetes Research is now live and runs through the month of May. You can bid on autographed books, jewelry, critiques by editors and agents, vacations, and a whole host of other fabulous donations from the publishing community and beyond. Last year the auction raised $252,300. Her goal for this year is $300,000. Here's the link to the auction's home page:
Romancing the Yarn contributed a gift bag of all the goodies below. If you'd like to bid on it, look under the category "Gift Baskets and Collections" or go to Item 1361520. There's already a hot bidding war going on because it's got such great stuff in it.
I also donated an autographed book with a pair of earrings I made myself. Look under "For Readers" for Item 1341683 if you're interested.
Just browsing through the listings is a lot of fun and anything you spend goes to a very worthy cause.
