Heyla friends!

      I know I'm breaking my 'one newsletter a month' rule here but it's important and for a good friend of mine, KD Williamson
     KD has had a lot of beast cancer-related health scares over the years and has reached the point where she feels it safest to have a preventative mastectomy. Unfortunately the healthcare industry is not always friendly or amenable and she's stuck coming up with the money on her own. Kim is hosting an auction to raise money for the procedure and many authors have donated books to the cause. You can sign up for the Facebook event and see all the lovely donations HERE. Pic your favorites and get ready to bid! See the details of the auction below.
      If you're not interested in books and/or you just want to donate directly to her GoFundMe page, click this => DONATE.

      My contribution (here is your chance to bid and win some of my fiction if you're a fan) - I'm personally donating signed copies of my Blood Resonance paranormal romance series books as a set (Running From Forever and Embracing Forever). I'm also donating a signed copy of my newest sci-fi release, Remember Me, Synthetica. Both auction items will come with postcard swag and a book mark. Click the images to go to the Amazon page for the each book/set.

Details about the auction for KD Williamson’s Mastectomy Fund
When: July 25th-August 1st
Where: I will create an open event on Facebook
What: Lesfic Authors will post the paperback or set of paperbacks they are autographing. Individuals will bid. Whoever is the highest bidder at the end of the auction wins it.
Payment: Bidders will pay via PayPal.
Shipping: KD will facilitate between author and bidder to ensure items are shipped. For shipping overseas, authors who can not afford to do so, I will try to help if as much as I can.

As always, thank you for your continued support of not just me but the literary community as a whole. Because a voice is nothing without people to hear. Read, rate, and review. I'm always glad to answer emails and love to see feedback. Drop me a line for all questions, comments, and criticisms. I genuinely want to get better and I'm open to all. Thank you, my friends!
