Favorite Friday: For the Cure Auction

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday. I'm knee-deep in my first draft of Stranded--Gage McKenna's story and I'm having so much fun getting to know him.

Today I'd like to share one of my favorite fundraisers: Brenda Novak's Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research. Brenda started this auction because it is very near and dear to her heart. Brenda' youngest son, Thad, was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes at the age of five, so she knows firsthand how difficult the disease is. To date, she has helped raise more than a million dollars for this great cause.

I've been participating since the auction began a number of  years back, and I'm doing so again this  year.

To celebrate the launch of Submerged with Bethany House, I'm donating a Bethany House Reader's Basket. It's filled with great titles from my very talented Bethany House colleagues along with an autographed copy of Submerged and some fun goodies.

The auction starts May 1st and runs until May 31st. You can find more information on FacebookTwitter, or Brenda's For the Cure website.

I hope you'll drop by and check it out. The money goes to a great cause and the items available for bidding are fantastic!

Here are a couple I'm keeping my eye on:

Alaskan Cruise





Hawaiian Getaway






Hope your days are filled with adventure,
