Let the Bidding Begin

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.

Critique of a YA book proposal: Get your project ready for a contest or an agent or editor submission. Winner will receive an in depth critique of the query letter, synopsis, and first 25 pages of a YA/Teen book proposal by 2009 RITA Award winner for Best First Book, Tera Lynn Childs. Critique will include both inline notes and general, bigger picture thoughts and suggestions. Also includes a follow-up email to answer any questions raised by the critique.

If you're interested in either of the above, have some spare cash lying around, and want to give money to a great cause, please consider bidding. And be sure to check out all the other fabulous items up for bidding. There's truly something for everyone.
