Brenda Novak's Charity Auction

Each year for the past 6 years, Brenda Novak has held an online Auction for Diabetes Research. Last year they raised over $280,000 for the charity. How great is that?

Now I know you are asking exactly why am I posting about this on my writer's blog? Just wait until you see the items that are up for auction! This is a writers/readers dream trust me!

They have ARC's, Published books, autographed books, e-girftcards to bookstores and publishing houses, and many more things.

Just a few of the awesome things they have up for bid are...

  • Evaluation of your full manuscript for publication consideration by numerous agents.
  • Pitch sessions (face to face meetings) with agents
  • Proof reading services for your entire manuscript by a professional editor
