Find an agent/help a good cause

If you're shopping for an agent, you might want to check out the online auction that romance author Brenda Novak is running to benefit diabetes research. There's a category for bidding on critiques by agents, or in some cases read-and-quick-response from agents. The focus of the auction is for romance writers and readers but a lot of the agents handle spec fic as well as romance (e.g., Jennifer Jackson, Kristin Nelson). There a similar listing for editors but it looks like it's only romance editors.

And if none of that interests you, there's always the Mexican vacation!
