Brenda Novak Auction is in FULL SWING

BRENDA NOVAK'S AUCTION IS OVER FOR 2013!  IT RAISED $335,000, PUSHING HER OVERALL FUND RAISING TO $2,000,000. Thanks to everyone who participated!

If you've been reading my blog the last few months, then you know that the annual Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research is well under way!  Starting May 1st and running until May 31st, Brenda and friends have donated over 2,000 items to the auction for bidding.  Since starting the auction several years ago, Brenda has raised more than $1.6 million!  It is hopeful that the auction will surpass $2 million in 2013!  It is well on its way of doing so!

And if you've been reading my blog, you also know that I am involved in three different categories this year: Northwest Houston RWA, Hearts Through History RWA and Sweethearts of the West.  Between the three groups, more than 30 items have been donated, including 3 Kindles loaded with books, critiques, gift baskets (including two especially for young readers), and more!  This is in addition to the other 2,000 items available for your bidding pleasure.

Here's some of the items available from my groups:

Hearts Through History: Pride and Prejudice DVD basket

Hearts Through History: Seduced by History Basket

Hearts Through History: Cookbook Basket

Hearts Through History: For the Love of History for Children

Thanks, Ella. We have several critiques by our published authors, too! I'll need to highlight those in their own blog post!

Yes, please. I have offered a partial critique of a historical romance for the auction.

Best wishes,
