Auction Stuff of Beauty and Coolness

Every year, Brenda Novak holds an online auction in aid of diabetes research.  Have a look at it here.

Some wonderful items on offer.

Steampunk flash drive
Steampunk flash drive.   Turquoise stained glass box by author Chloe Jacobs.  Replica Regency-style rings.  Art deco necklace.

Name a character in an upcoming book by Carly Phillips, Shiloh Walker, or Amanda Brice.

Tiny lizard pot for seeds
14" X 16" hand woven Thunderbird mat for your computer area or a tiny lizard pot.

Then there's YOUR favorite book covers made into a 3' X 3' quilt.  What could be cooler than that?

Then there's a really weird teapot. Or this pretty Edwardian pin.

An Edwardian pin.  1910.

See Mercedes Lackey's autographed books and matching necklace and another one.

Books.  Books.  Books.

Two ARCs from Sherry Thomas who won the Historical Romance RITA last year.  

The remarkable Grace Burrowes offers an autographed book and a color NOOK!

Get FOUR of Loretta Chase's Traditional Regencies.  Signed by the author. I suspect these are difficult to come by.

Small Thunderbird weaving
I am just going to mention that four of the folks competing for the Historical Romance RITA have signed books available.  Loretta Chase, Elizabeth Hoyt, Kaki Warner and meEileen Dreyer, another Finalist in that category, is doing a critique.  This is probably deeply significant.

Finally, we have author critiques.  You could not possibly do better than this.  I'm only going to list a few -- Kristan Higgins, Madeline Hunter, Candice Hern, Anna Campbell, Eileen Dreyer, Vanessa Kelly,  Delilah Marvelle, Karen Harper, and Lauren Willig.
