Get Great Stuff, Help Stop Juvenile Diabetes!
Be sure to visit author Brenda Novak's Annual Auction to benefit Juvenile Diabetes.
There are wonderful items to bid on, including books (including my latest release), gift baskets, gift cards, trips, jewelry, quilts, etc. And for writers-- meetings with editors, critiques, mentoring, agent appointments, etc.
Join me as I work to raise money for those suffering from diabetes. My youngest son, Thad, has diabetes, so this is a very personal cause for me. I appreciate the support of the many people who have come together to make this happen. What an inspiration their generosity has been! In year one, we raised $34,982 that went directly to research. In year two, we nearly doubled that amount at $63,000. This year I'm hoping to to reach $75,000. To encourage your excitement over this event, the person who places the most bids over all (even if that person doesn't win a single item) will receive some amazing prizes.
