A few years ago I was asked to donate something to Brenda Novak’s Auction to Benefit Diabetes Research. My grandmother had diabetes, so I jumped on the opportunity. Since then Brenda’s auction has grown – last year the auction broke the $1 million mark (as a cumulative total) and set a new annual record by raising $303,000!!

This year I’m participating again by donating signed books. I hope you’ll check out the auction because there are such great (and very cool) things to bid on, including once in a lifetime experiences (like a royal afternoon tea at the Palm Court at The Plaza in NYC with Meg Cabot),  the ability to have your manuscript read by an agent, and so much more.

So make sure you check out all the wonderful items and experiences you can bid on and be there on May 1 when the fun starts.
