Each year, author Brenda Novak spearheads an auction for diabetes research. The great thing about the auction is that she offers quite a few auction items specifically designed for writers. For example, last year I won an evaluation from an editor at a major publishing house for $100 bucks. You can't beat that. Below is a list of categories that are available. Check them out and, if you see something that interests you, visit her website and place a bid. It could be the break you need to get the attention of an agent or publisher AND it's for a great cause.
