Brenda Novak Diabetes Auction 2014

Tonya Kappes' Cat Capers and Feline Flirts

Brenda Novak's annual online auction has raised over $2 million for Juvenile Diabetes research, and preparations are being made for the May 2014 auction. This is an opportunity to support this important cause while promoting one's books and website.

Authors Marcia James and I (Tonya Kappes) are organizing two pet-themed prize categories for the 2014 auction. Here are the details and ways you can participate, if you're interested.

I'm hosting an auction category titled, "Tonya Kappes' Cat Capers & Feline Flirts." All of the prizes in my category will offer books (any genre) with cats in them. Authors who have books that include cats can donate a print or ebook to this category by emailing me at Tonya at tonyak11 @ (no spaces).

Marcia's category is "Canine Cupids and Crimefighters," and all of the prizes will offer books (any genre) with dogs in them, along with dog-themed prizes. Authors who have books that include dogs can donate a print or ebook to this category by emailing Marcia at ACMarcia @ (no spaces).

Here's what we'll need from you:

Title of donated book
Genre of donated book
Sensuality level of donated book
Author pen name
Author website URL

At the end of the May 2014 auction, I will be given the winners' names, along with their snail-mail and email addresses. Then we'll contact the participating authors, so they can send their print books or ebooks directly to the winners.

The 2014 auction prizes will be listed on the auction website starting in January, since many of the thousands of auction visitors enjoy checking out the prizes before the auction begins. So, we'll need to hear from donating authors by December 15th.

Kentucky Derby Pie
(from my mama~Linda Lowry)
My mama’s Derby Pie is smack your mama good! It’s a southern pie with walnuts and chocolate chips. You can use pecans in substitute for the walnuts, but I really like my walnuts!

Ingredients: ½ cup melted butter
1 cup sugar ½ cup flour 2 beaten eggs 1 tsp. vanilla extract ¾ cup Walnuts or pecans (your choice not both!) ¾ cup chocolate chips (or more if you really want it gooey!)
Directions Mix in the order that’s written under the ingredients. This is very important. Pour the mixture into an unbaked 9 inch pie shell. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
