May is for Brenda Novak's Online Auction for #Diabetes Research and Bookish Fun

This May Brenda Novak's Online Auction for Diabetes Research celebrates its 10th anniversary.

This is an amazing month-long fundraising event where you can bid on the fantastic and the useful. Want to meet Celine Dion after a concert or lunch with a favorite author? Want an established author, editor or agent to give you feedback on your current manuscript? Or, how about a vacation in Hawaii? Maybe all you want is books, books and more can bid on all this and more at the auction between now and May 31.

In the past I have supported the auction by bidding on items. I have won awesome critiques from author Jim C. Hines and Agent Kristin Nelson, which provided valuable writing insights. I have won signed books from favorite authors for my Keeper Shelf. I'm going to the Romantic Times conference in New Orleans this month thanks to a bid I won last year.

This year, I'm even more excited because I'm in a place where I can do more to support the cause. Several author friends and I joined together as the MMM authors to work together and to collaborate on projects. We had fun pooling together our resources and abilities to come up with items for Brenda's auction.

Check out our Mmm-licious Goodies from the MMM Authors listing.

Yes, my offerings includes a Western themed kitchen set...aren't the cowboys & boots cute?

And I have a personal offering too -- a signed copy of Wildfire with a Dragon bookmark.

Diabetes is a disease that touches everyone's life in one way or another. Brenda embraced the cause when her 5-year-old son was diagnosed with diabetes. My grandfather had diabetes. We all have family and friends, people we know and love, who are dealing with diabetes.

So come on out and support Brenda's Auction, help raise funds for diabetes research, find some cool deals and have fun!

Oh this year, Brenda has a bookish special in addition to the auction. She's brought together 14 award-winning, bestselling, story telling authors in a boxed set called A Sweet Life. All the proceeds go to diabetes research.
