Brenda Novak’s Auction for Diabetes Research

Barbara Vey

May marks the 10th Anniversary of Brenda Novak’s Online Auction for Diabetes Research.  It’s a month long extravaganza where you can bid on anything from an exotic vacation, to meeting a celebrity, to lunch with an author, or even getting a brand new book and everything in between.

But this year Brenda’s taken it one step further by offering a box set of books from award winning authors.  According to Bella Andre, “I am beyond excited to let all of you know about an amazing anthology that I’m a part of in which all proceeds go to diabetes research! A SWEET LIFE has stories by 14 amazing, bestselling contemporary romance writers — Susan Mallery, Barbara Freethy Books, Heather Graham, Julia Kent, Brenda Novak, Carly Phillips (Official), Jennifer Probst, RaeAnne Thayne, Rachel Van Dyken, Susan Wiggs, Lauren Hawkeye, Jane Porter, Steena Holmes & me — and it’s only $2.99 for a limited time!

The release date is May 1st, but you can pre-order it now from:
Amazon Kindle ~Apple iBooks ~ “

This is a win-win for everyone.  Readers get great books, authors get discovered and money pours into research needed for this deadly disease.

You can still donate something by emailing Anna at  You can bid on items starting May 1st, but there’s already some items posted here, if you want to take a look.

Now, leave a comment on what you’d like to win from the auction and I’ll pick one lucky commenter who will receive this set of terrific reads.
