Happy Friday everyone! Please remember to stop by the Scribes and read my post – Pitch Perfect.
This year, along with my other Soul Mate sisters, I’m participating in Brenda Novak’s Auction for Diabetes Research. So far, the auction has raised $1.3 million, with a goal of $2 million.
The auction runs from May 1, 2012 – May 31, 2012.
There is an impressive variety of items up for bid from autographed books, e-readers, jewelry, networking opportunities, and the grand prize is an iMac.
As a group, Soul Mate authors are auctioning off a Kindle, fully loaded with Soul Mate Books. Click here, to place a bid.
I’m giving away an e-book copy of Mystic Ink and a 15 page evaluation of a WIP in progress. If you’re interested, please click here, and it will take you directly to my bidding page.
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that next weekend is Connecticut Fiction Fest – CTRWA’s annual writing conference.
If you live in the area, this is a great event! We have agents and editors galore, a variety of valuable workshops, book signings and a raffle.
Check it out – Fiction Fest 2012.
Speaking of the conference, I’m pitching again this year, so it’s back to work for me!
Have a great weekend!

I’m part of the auction, too Casey. Two of my books have been added to a Kindle that will be auctioned off for the charity. It is wonderful to help Brenda with this most worthy cause. She has done a wonderful job with it! See you at FF!
Awesome PJ! Can’t wait to see you next weekend.
Hey Casey! I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/
Thanks Larissa! I’ll be posting my answers/picks sometime during the coming week.
Thank you so much for helping us to spread the word about the auction. 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 two 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 http://www.cafepress.com/brendanovaksonlinediabetesauction. We have also added a blog which will have updates of the auction, items that are currently being spotlighted, and much more. The link to visit is http://bnauctionblog.tumblr.com/. Thank you again for helping us to make a difference.

I’ve always dreamed of being a writer. Since being a volunteer on the auction and seeing all the fantastic items that have been donated for writers I’ve made up an imaginary wish list of items if I were to live out my dream as a writer. I thought I’d share that with you: The Complete Author Package Book Collection from COOL GUS PUBLISHING (Bob Mayer & Jen Tatly) (Current Bid: $34), Contract Review from Agent Marisa A. Corvisiero of Corvisiero Literary Agency (A) (Current Bid: $67), Submissions Workshop (3 Weeks Online) POLISH YOUR PARTIAL SUBMISSION from Document Driven (Current Bid: $30), NEW!!!

These are all the items I believe I would need to start my career as a writer.
