Brenda Novak Online Auction

I enjoy helping causes and one that I feel needs more attention is Juvenile Diabetes research. Every May author Brenda Novak executes a wonderful online auction to help fund research for this disease.

This year I was a donating fiend! Below is a list of the items I've donated to and there is an overall grand prize tot he person who bids the most but not necessarily buys the most. So check out the home page:

And here are all the awesome gift baskets and ereader deals I donated to:

Brenda Novak Auction info

I have several donated items to the Brenda Novak online Auction for Diabetes that is running the month of May. Stop by and bid on my tote bag, ereader  cover, books, chocolate and $75 in gift cards and your dog becoming a character in my mystery series.

Or the Sweetheart Basket with one of my books and other western authors.

Or the basket from Romancing the Genres with one of my books and other goodies from authors of Romancing the Genres.

Or I donated money and one book to three ereaders up for bid.

And a Kindle Touch through Hearts Through History with my short Christmas story
