I have to admit, I heard about this box set a few weeks ago when Brenda invited me to be in a blog tour. I had planned on waiting, but when I saw it on her twitter account I decide to do a little promotion before it became my turn to host it officially.
I like thousand of others have family members who have diabetes, so I'd like to see a cure too.
The limited edition digital boxed set titled is called ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS. It is filled with delightful and romantic Christmas stories from myself and some of the biggest romance authors of our time, including New York Times Bestselling authors Debbie Macomber, Bella Andre, Melody Anne, Violet Duke, Marie Force, Heather Graham, Laurelin Paige & Kayti McGee, Jane Porter, Melanie Shawn and RaeAnne Thayne, with three extra stories from Scarlett York, Melinda Curtis and Anna J. Stewart.
All the proceeds will go to Boston University to help Dr. Ed Damiano (who also has a son with Type 1) finish engineering the artificial pancreas. Why is his work important? Because the artificial pancreas will go far toward helping insulin-dependent diabetics remain healthy until that elusive biological cure can be found. So, please, pre-order this boxed set today (which will be released October 25th here in the store, and on November 1st everywhere else and will only be available through December 31, 2016) and encourage your friends and family to do the same. You'll get many hours of enjoyable reading in exchange for a small donation that will help a lot of people.
