Shades of Pink – A Breast Cancer Awareness Month event

Welcome to my Shades of Pink event!

Every year in October – my birth month – I try to have a special event. This year, I wanted to do something different. I have received tremendous support in my writing in the past years, and I wanted to give back.

As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All this month, I’ll be holding a fundraiser to benefit research. But I don’t just want your money. I want to give, too! Give to you, the readers, and each week I’ll give away signed paperbacks, handmade beaded book thongs and swag, with a last hurrah giveaway on October 31st with a handmade pink ribbon quilt as one of the prizes. Give to the fundraiser, too, and for that I’ll need your help.

Whichever way you decide to participate, thank you in advance!
