Brenda Novak Auction - Tons of Options for Readers and Writers!

Brenda Novak's On-line Auction

Brenda Novak is a romance writer and her auction funds Diabetes research. You can bid on books, gift baskets, e-readers, jewelry, conference admissions, writing workshops, agent and author critiques, query critiques and a few top notch categories of special interest type things.

For writers - those critiques are golden opportunities to receive valuable feedback from published authors and working agents. I keep repeating my mantra FINISH THE BOOK! But I'm definitely checking out some of these partial manuscript critiques.

For readers - tons of genres and authors are represented, some with some pretty low bids starting out. Plus, the money funds research to cure diabetes.


  1. Thanks for sharing the info about the auction. Much appreciated. :)

  2. Thank you so much for helping us to spread the word about the auction and what you and the other finalists are auctioning off. We appreciate your participation and generosity. My name is Danita and I’m a volunteer on the auction and your help in getting the word out generates more shoppers and visits to the auction website. We have added to new features to this year’s auction. We know that there are some shoppers who are unable to bid on items but do want to contribute to the cause so we have added a store which will allow them to purchase items and the proceeds go towards the auction the link is Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Auction Store. We have also added a blog which will have updates of the auction, items that are currently being spotlighted, live chats, and much more.
