Away from my usual references, today's post is one to support three causes I love most in the world: writers, editors and diabetes research.
Feel free to visit Brenda's site and feel free to pass this on to other interested folks...

Don't miss Brenda Novak's Third Annual On-Line Auction for Diabetes Research May 1 - May 31st at www.brendanovak.com (Brenda's son has diabetes). There will be an amazing For Writers section that will include reads/critiques/lunches/teas/phone consultations with some of the biggest agents and editors in the business. There will also be plenty for published authors--publicity packages, lunch with Borders/Waldens bookbuyer Sue Grimshaw, Lunch with Levy Books, web site design, etc. The person who places the most bids over all will win a $1500 prize package that includes a brand new laptop computer and digital camera (even if that person doesn't actually win a single item)! For a preview of what will be available, there's a list posted at brendanovak.com.
