Autographed Books to Benefit Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)

When a family friend posted a request for donations for her annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Fundraiser, I offered a couple of signed copies of my Chicken Soup for the Soul anthology.

Then I thought why not ask my writer friends on social media if anyone else would be interested in donating an autographed copy of their books?

Writers are the best! We were able to provide a giant Basket-O-Books plus duplicates in a Mini-Stack!! The total value of the donations equaled over $275, and included autographed novels, murder mysteries, memoirs, historical non-fiction, children’s books, romances, you name it!
