Because Authors and Readers Care...

Hello to all my blog readers,

It is with profound sadness that I learned an online friend of mine and fellow author, Leslie Esdaile, ("L.A. Banks") is most gravely ill. She is facing an uphill battle in her struggle with serious illness. Please know that as Leslie needs all of her energy in this fight, she is absolutely not able to receive visitors, answer emails, texts or phone calls, or receive flowers.

While your prayers and thoughts are most welcome and needed, a special support website, including an auction has been set up in order to help Leslie with the mounting medical expenses facing her and her family. I'd like to ask if you would consider helping myself and others spread the word about this auction by mentioning the auction on your website, blog, facebook and in your newsletters with a link to this website: for the duration of the auction.

I have donated a signed copy of my paperback erotic romance, Shifting Tides and also am donating a critique for a 30,000 word or less manuscript of an erotic romance story. So whether you are an erotic romance fan and reader, or a budding erotic romance author please help by bidding on these items and some of the other wonderful items up for auction.

Share Your Heart Auction for Leslie On Ebay
June 21-July 1, 2011
Bids begin at : 9 AM EST (6/21)
Auctions end: 9 PM (7/1)
you must register with Ebay to place bids for the auction (if you are not registered)

Thank you all so very much.

I heard about this and wrote about it on my own blog the other day. It's very sad news to hear. I've had a lot of cancer in my family and know how hard it can be for a family to go through. I'll be sending positive thoughts to her and her family.
