Things to win

My favorite annual fundraiser, Menu for Hope, has begun. Each year, it raises money for one of the UN's food programes. This year's program is "Purchase for Progress". The real reason it's my favorite fundraiser, though, is the amazing food-related prizes to be won, from lavish multi-course meals with matching wine to market tours to food-related guidebooks to cooking classes to cases of wine. Each US$10 ticket goes towards one specific prize of your choice. (In other words, you'll only be entering to wine prizes you'd want to win.) Menu for Hope will be available to enter until December 25th.

In other news, the lovely stephanieburgis is giving away the very first ARC for her forthcoming young adult Regency fantasy novel, A Most Improper Magick. If you're tempted, contest details are here.
