Did you know that last year alone, diabetes claimed more than 284,000 lives? That statistic comes from an article released by the American Diabetes Association last week. The number is staggering.

Diabetes affects my family, too. How about you? Familiar with the above image? Do you or someone you love need insulin to survive?

The entire month of May and once a week until then, I'll be posting information on diabetes in support of Brenda Novak's Auction right here on Keeping A Pulse On Life & Romance. I'm hoping this will not only increase awareness about the disease, but help generate buzz and donations for such a wonderful cause. I'm also donating a framed 8x10 autographed photo of Chicago Cub's third baseman, Ron Santo to the auction. He's a shoe in for the Hall of Fame!

Here's where to go to get more information:

Don't miss Brenda Novak's 4th Annual On-line Auction for Diabetes research May 1 - May 31st at There, you'll find meet & greets, autographed books, baskets and other items from some of today's biggest fiction authors, including Sherrilyn Kenyon, Ridley Pearson, Jayne Ann Krentz, Debbie Macomber, Susan Wiggs, Allison Brennan, Lisa Jackson, Christine Feehan, Jane Porter, Jami Alden and more. And if you're an aspiring writer, you won't want to miss the reads that will be offered by many of the most powerful agents and editors in publishing (some even come with a guaranteed 24-hour response--you can't beat that!)
Need something good to read? I highly recommend Brenda Novak's STILLWATER TRILOGY--DEAD SILENCE, DEAD GIVEAWAY, AND DEAD RIGHT. They are available at Barnes and Noble and Borders Bookstores. Look for her 2008 release in June, TRUST ME.
