Benefit for Author Jo Leigh
Jo Leigh, a multi-Rita nominated author for several Harlequin imprints, lost her husband to cancer in June of this year. Visit http://pbackwriter.blogspot.com/2008/06/auction-for-jo-leigh.html to learn more about her story. The short version is that this talented writer did not have health insurance and she has catastrophic medical bills to pay.
Mica Stone decided to do something about it. She's organizing a benefit auction for Jo. Authors have donated critiques, mentoring, the opportunity to name a character in an upcoming book, autographed books and lots of other goodies. (I offered a bundle of my whole backlist, PLEASURING THE PIRATE, DISTRACTING THE DUCHESS and my Diana Groe titles, SILK DREAMS, ERINSONG and MAIDENSONG.) Visit http://www.alisonkent.com/forjoleigh.html to see if there's something there for the readers or writers on your Christmas list.
I hope you're moved to help. There is always enough, if we love enough.
