Brenda Novak Auction

novakauctionAs you know, I love to donate to Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Auction and I’m doing it again this year.  I used to be an Executive Director for the American Diabetes Association as this is a cause close to my heart.  Diabetes runs in my family and I love helping Brenda in what she’s doing.  I think it’s important and her auction makes it fun for everyone. It has given me some wonderful opportunities and memories too.  Last year I was lucky enough to win Lunch with Thea Harrison and a couple of years before that, I won coffee with Claudia Dain.  Such fun!

As usual, I’ve made a donation too and this year, I’m giving away a chance for you to fly in to have dinner with me – or I can come have dinner with you and your book group like I did with these wonderful ladies from the Horseshoe Trail Book Club in Eden Prairie, MN!


Here’s more on my auction item:

Dinner with Bestselling Author Jane Porter

Jane Porter will fly to see you, AND take you, and your book club to dinner, or you, and your friends, up to 12 friends, on a mutually agreeable night in the next six months.  Jane will also bring books for all the guests, and fun JP reader swag for all your friends, too!

During dinner, you can turn it into a book club discussion, or a chat with Jane and her books or about publishing, or get advice on how to get published, or simply talk girl talk about men, life, and kids.


If you’re itching to have dinner with Jane at the beach, Jane will fly the winner of this auction item out to Southern California, for dinner with her with an ocean view!

If you choose to come to Jane, she’ll cover up to $500 of your travel expenses, and she’ll still treat you to dinner and send you home with a big tote bag of signed books.

Basically, this is dinner with Jane on Jane, so let’s make it happen!

So, that’s my item and I hope you’ll go bid on it as I’d love to have dinner with YOU!  Meanwhile for more fun, I’ve got a surprise beach giveaway for you!  For a chance to win, leave a comment here and tell me: Would you want to fly in to have dinner with me in California?  Or would you want me to fly in to meet you and your friends in your hometown?  Contest runs through Sunday and I’ll announce the winner on Monday, May 27th.  Have a great weekend!
