Back in 2010, I needed agent and editor and published author feedback on an early version of The Six Train to Wisconsin. I stumbled across an ad in Writer’s Digest about Brenda Novak’s Online Auction For The Cure of Diabetes.
The proceeds of the auction go to a great cause–to find a cure for diabetes. It’s a cause close to Ms. Novak’s heart. Her son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 5 years old.
The prizes are every writer’s dream. Lunch with a NYT Bestseller. Having a Big 6 editor critique your first 50 pages. Having an agent critique your pages and getting a follow up call with them.
For readers, there are signed copies, previews of new work, author interaction.
The online auctions will be going on throughout the month of May. But individual auctions have different opening and closing dates. Make sure you set up an account and get alerts so you don’t miss out on your dream items.
I think the feedback from this auction played a huge role in my being an Amazon Breakthrough Novelist Award Semifinalist last year.
She has thousands of items and experiences up for auction. Worth every penny. And those pennies go to such a great cause.
Check them out, you might just find something that propels your work to heights you never imagined.
