Lunch with NY Times Bestselling Author Diana Gabaldon

How cool is this???  You can win lunch with Herself!  Thanks to Julie for the heads up!

And I should elaborate and mention that the auction is being run (again!) by Brenda Novak to raise money for Diabetes research.

And we all know how I feel about Diabetes research.  :)

  1. Thanks for letting us know! I put the link up on Compuserve. I wonder if this is intended mostly for people in the Phoenix area? Seems sort of logistically difficult for those of us on the east coast, doesn't it? Especially considering that Diana isn't traveling much this year. But it's for a good cause!

  2. Agreed, Karen. DG is verra cool to offer her time like this, no? And for such a good cause. I should elaborate. Posted that yesterday while testing out my new Blogger button on my Chrome toolbar and didn't elaborate!

  3. Diana provided a little more detail on Compuserve today about this:

    "I've done this for them two or three times before, and on each occasion, the lunchee was from somewhere far afield. (One year, it took nearly a year for us to find a mutually agreeable time at which she'd be in Phoenix--but we did. <g>) So no, definitely not limited to people in the Phoenix area. (Transportation _to_ Phoenix is not included. <g> But a lot of people find occasion to come here for a holiday or business.)"

    Airfare not included? Oh, well.

    And yes, it's for a very good cause!
