Every year, author Brenda Novak hosts an auction to raise money for juvenile diabetes research. The auction has raised ridiculous amounts of money (over $300,000 last year and $1,000,000 over all) because authors, agents, editors, and tons of other people donate fabulous prizes. This year, I've contributed two lots to the frenzy.
A complete set of my three published books: Oh. My. Gods. (winner of the 2009 RITA Award for Best First Book) and Goddess Boot Camp, about a cross-country-running California girl struggling to find her place at a school for the descendants of Greek gods. Forgive My Fins, about a half-mermaid princess who goes to high school on the mainland and who accidentally bestows her magical first kiss on the wrong boy.
