Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research

I’ve just returned from the Kansas City Romantic Time Convention and am getting reorganized. I’ll be posting some notes from our True Colors: Writing Diversity panel as well as pictures from the lovely events.


In the meantime, the annual Brenda Novak charity auction for diabetes research has begun. You can bid on a wonderful array of fabulous items that are writer, reader or just everyone oriented.

I have two items up for bid. Bidding is open now and ends May 31.

I was so proud of my printed cookies that I made for Barbara Vey’s Reader Luncheon that I offered up a dozen for the auction. You can have any image printed on there: your book cover, your favorite hunk, or a cute photo of your cat. Sure, you can get these from a professional baker, but will they be made with the same Jeannie Lin love and mojo?

    Jeannie these are gorgeous. I work on the auction with Brenda and wanted to thank you for your generosity and support. We appreciate you helping to spread the word about the auction. We have some great opportunity drawings, a great grand prize and some fabulous items that have been donated including your generous donation. Together we can make a difference and are a step closer to breaking the $2 million mark. Thanks again.
