It's May, the month when the romance community and many fabulously generous companies come together to support the Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research.

Everyone knows someone who suffers from diabetes. Maybe not the desperate Type 1 which, since last year's auction, has hit the  daughter of an acquaintance. She's six years old and each day she has to inject herself with insulin. Think about that when you check out the absolutely amazing items on offer in this year's auction.

Brenda - whose son has the disease  -  has so far raised a total of $1.6 million through the power of love. This year she's hoping to surpass the $2 million mark.

It doesn't have to cost each of us very much. There are signed books by favourite authors as well as the high cost items.

This year I've donated a Kindle Paperwhite loaded with some of my eBooks - you can bid HERE

And a group of KISS authors have put together a bundle of signed books which you can bid for

Hi Liz:

I always support Brenda’s auction. Our family has been very hard hit by diabetes. Brenda is an inspiration for showing what one person can do (with the help of others, of course).

This is the best auction because if you are out-bid, you still win because it means more money goes to the cause.

Last year I won a lot of signed books and a so-called scarf that was knitted by Lyn Cote. I gave the ‘scarf’ to my wife and she took one look and said, “This material cost a fortune and that’s no scarf. I can use this as a shawl.”

Everyone should check this auction out. There are always items that go for less than they are worth. It’s a real auction with all the fun of an auction and it all goes to a very good cause.

BTW: After an hour of having to get new passwords and add a new credit card, I was able to bit on your Kindle. I’m high bidder. But I hope someone bids twice my limit.

Also, could you make a link out of the auction graphic? (BID ON ME) Have it link to your Kindle at the auction site? If you know how to do this, you’re fans will be able to get their with no fuss.

Thanks so much for your generous bid, Vince. There are some links lower down in the post - figuring out how to link to the graphic was beyond me, frankly but I will bold the others to make them mroe noticeable.

Hi Liz:

I don’t know how to link to a graphic either however your two bold links at the bottom of the post work just fine. I’m how the high bidder on the 11 books by what looks like 10 different authors. What faster way is there to get a collection of so many autographed books. What fun for a good cause.
