I'd like to put forward an idea for members of the SFR Brigade. The Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research takes place each May and accepts a wide variety of donations.
Last year there were books, critiques, vacations, jewelry, breakfasts, lunches or dinners with authors, agents, and editors, and even a mentorship contest. I bid on several items last year including artwork, books, posters, even a trip to Africa, and won a breakfast with RITA finalist Colleen Thompson and best-selling author Sharon Sala at RWA which was amazing. If you aren't familiar with the auction, you can browse a few of the items already submitted here: Brenda Novak Auction
The 2011 event might be a great opportunity for our authors to promote their books, and readers or aspiring authors to promote SFR in general. If we get enough interest from members who'd like to participate, we could look in to sponsoring a section on behalf of the Brigade with SFR related items...or not. Here's the page on how to Get Involved.
This is a wonderful cause. It has raised over $1 million for diabetes research to date! It could also be a great promotion for you, your book(s) or SFR in general. Are you interested?
