2009 online auction to benefit diabetes research

Since I was outed yesterday, and the official listing is now up, I am hereby making it known that I will be participating in Brenda Novak's auction for Diabetes Research. I offered a proposal critique for a novel last year and will be doing the same this year.

The official listing is here. Bidding starts at the bargain price of $2.

At Brenda's request, a second critique is also being offered as part of one of the raffle selections. The listing is here. The package my critique is bundled with includes an EEE PC, a critique from Brenda, another critique from editor Kate Duffy, and a membership to this year's RWA National convention (or other conference of the winner's choice at same price). It looks like those tickets cost $20.

So, you can donate to a worthy cause and get great prizes. Auction starts on May 1st and runs through the month. I'll post another reminder the day it goes live....

(And this is one of the things that I'd be tempted by....)

Items my clients are offering (will add more as they appear - because I don't see the ones from suricattus and mizkit yet):
* Critique from author Jo Ann Ferguson
* Critique from author Jocelyn Kelley
* Books from Martha Wells: The Wizard Hunters (signed hardcover), Wheel of the Infinite (signed hardcover), Death of the Necromancer (signed hardcover)

Please feel free to link to this and pass it along to others!
