Valarie thank you so much for helping us to spread the word about the auction and what you and the other finalists are auctioning off. We appreciate your participation and generosity. My name is Danita and I’m a volunteer on the auction and your help in getting the word out generates more shoppers and visits to the auction website.

Brenda has decided to put some of the money she normally dedicates to promoting a new book toward her Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research, so this means great things for those of us who chomp at the bit for her next new book . . .
Anyone who pre-orders WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES at Amazon or Barnes and Noble BEFORE the end of this month will be entered into Brenda’s Fan Club, which gives you access to the password-protected part of her website and the contests and goodies she makes available there. Plus, you will receive a $10 GIFT CERTIFICATE you can use at the auction toward anything you want!
