Brenda Novak Silent Auction

Just a quick note for today's blog: I want to remind our readers that this month (May) author Brenda Novak is holding her annual silent auction to raise money for diabetes research. I'm sure most of you know at least one person who struggles with this disease. Brenda has done an incredible job raising awareness of the disease within the writing community.

"Last year, we raised nearly $280,000. I'm hoping to break that record this year. If we can come anywhere close, our grand total will reach over $1 million dollars--so this is a special year in many respects."-- Brenda Novak

Plug the name of your favorite author into the search box and see what items they're donating.

I'm offering a Cowboy Gift Bag--(above photo) two autographed books, a cowboy candle, spur paperweight, cowboy picture frame and a collection of Texas recipes (Item # 1717867).

If you're an aspiring writer be sure to review the list of publishers and their items up for bid--there's something for everyone.

If you're able, please support this worthy cause and help Brenda reach the million-dollar mark!

Dexter: Honorable Cowboy (July 2010)
Book #2 in The Cody's: First Family of Rodeo

I'd LOVE to win these incredible gifts. I've read all your books except Daddy by Choice which somehow I missed and now can't find. I still look though. Keep writing and I'll keep reading. :-)

Thanks so much for the nice words about my books. The only place you might find Daddy by Choice is through a used book store or sometimes it comes up on E-Bay.

I'm glad you enjoy my books--it's readers like you who make me believe I have the best job in the world!

Thank you for posting this. I have spent some hours at the auction and will be spending some money there, too.
