New York Times Bestselling author Brenda Novak’s Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research is now open for bidding and running until May 31st. As Brenda says,
All the proceeds of this fundraiser will go to benefit the Diabetes Research Institute, which is doing some phenomenal work. So many people’s lives are affected by this terrible disease–it’s one of our deadliest. So let’s join together and see it become a thing of the past–for my son and millions of others.
So far, we’ve raised over $2 million. Here’s hoping we can add another $500,000 to that total in 2014.
I’ve donated an eBook edition of BORROWING ALEX for inclusion in two multi-author auction items. The first is the Contemporary Romance Prize from Marcia James, which includes 12 dog-themed paperbacks and ebooks plus over 16 other pet-themed goodies. I’m joined in this package with authors Edie Ramer, Marcia James, Gemma Brocato, Dale Mayer, Barbara Raffin and Tori Scott. Every romance features a dog. In my case, there are two dogs in BORROWING ALEX.
BORROWING ALEX is also featured in the Curl Up With Romance package put together by Tonya Kappes. In this case, all the romances (two ebooks and two paperbacks) include cats, and my donation features a toothless Siamese cat named Rusty (long story). Other authors include Phoebe Conn, Lynn Hubbard and Grace Greene.
Go ahead, make a bid. It’s for a good cause! And there are tons of other auction items from which to choose.
