Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes

Best Selling Author and Founder of the Annual On-Line Auction for a Cure for Diabetes, Brenda Novak is at it again. This is her 10th annual public auction and it's bigger than ever!! 

Of course, I'm am participating again by donating time and services. The Corvisiero Literary Agency is hosting it's own category this year. All of the Agents at the agency are offering multiple donations from query and manuscript critiques to live consultations. The category is Romance - YA, NA, Romance, Womens' Fiction and Erotica. But many of the services do transfer over to other genres. Please take a look at our donations listed on Brenda's foundation page and register to make a bid. The auctions begins on May 1st

Aside from our donations there are literally thousands of fantastic prizes for anyone, not just readers and writers. So be sure to go take a gander! You won't be disappointed. 

From Brenda's Page...

I'm so excited about what we have planned for 2014. This is our big ten-year anniversary, and I hope to make the auction bigger and better than ever. Please join with me by donating a good or service we can put up for auction, helping to spread the word through Facebook, Twitter or email, or shopping when the auction opens May 1st (in order to be a shopper, please register now so that you'll get the information you need before the auction goes live). Almost everything will start at just $3--and all the proceeds will go to benefit the Diabetes Research Institute, which is doing some phenomenal work. There are so many people whose lives are affected by this terrible disease--it's one of our deadliest. So let's join together and see it become a thing of the past.

Thanks so much to all those who have participated in previous years. Many of you have been with me since the very beginning--and together we've raised over $2 million. That's a figure I never dreamed we'd reach. I'm proud of that, but our work isn't done yet.

All of our previous donors have been contacted and we're receiving fabulous donations, but if you're new and would like to participate, we'd love to include you. For more information, or, if you haven't received your email from us, please email Anna ( and she'll get you all set up.

If you're a shopper, make sure you're checking back frequently and making your wish list as thousands of items will be going up between now and May 1st. We'll be offering something for everyone, from writers to readers to collectors to shopping enthusiasts.
Social media will be playing a HUGE role in the auction this year, so please make sure you're following us on Twitter (see below) and that you have LIKED us on FACEBOOK (see top left). You never know when we'll be offering prizes--or where they'll be announced (hint, hint).
