It's also time for the Brenda Novak Auction, which has raised over $1.3 million dollars for a cure for juvenile diabetes. The auction is going on all month – and there are a lot of really neat things to bid on. Let's go shopping!
In the Once in a Lifetime Experiences category, there's a two night stay at the Ritz Carlton in Lake Tahoe, and as I write this, the high bid is $165. WHAT? There's 15 days left, but hey, bid early bid often. There's also a 2 night stay at the Grand Palms Hotel in Pembroke Pines, Florida, and the high bid is $50 as of this moment. Hey? What's that over there? Nothing to see here about hotel stays.
There are also cruises, trips to Europe, and an African safari up for bidding. Good gravy.
There are also 25 different meals & drinks with authors up for bids, from coffee with Nalini Singh to drinks with Victoria Dahl – and lunch with Diana Gabaldon. And if you don't want to eat, but you do want to read, there are ARCs – a rather large collection of them.
And if you really want to read, there are auctions like this one: a year of Grand Central Forever titles . Imagine that package of awesomeness arriving on your porch every month.
I donated an author interview, in case you're interested. And DearAuthor has donated an ad and an interview as well. Holy smokes, there are a ton of awesome things to bid on. And now that I've looked at all the categories, I've marked a few things to monitor in the hopes the price doesn't go higher than I can afford. I should probably bid – but then, once you place the bid, the competitive obsession takes over!
This is horrible fun, really.
So, are you bidding on something? What are you hoping to win?
