Great Cause

New York Times bestseller romance writer Brenda Novak is at it again. For the sixth year, Brenda is raising money at her Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research. Her youngest son was diagnosed with Type 1 at five years old. Last year she raised nearly $280,000 and is hoping to break that record this year. If successful, her grand total will reach over $1 million toward finding a cure through the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami. All cash donations are tax deductible.

The list of prizes and offerings is astounding, and not just for writers. Although many of the items for bid are specifically for writers, anyone will like the gift certificates to Macy's or to win an iPad or a trip to paradise. Check out some of the big ones at: Brenda's website

I heard about the event several years ago. Ever since, I have donated plot consultations, books and eBooks in honor of family and dear friends who suffer from diabetes.

If you'd like to bid on a Plot Consultation or a Romance Writers Plot eBook, join the fun!
