People may think that authors think only of themselves while clawing their way to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List, but that is not the case. They lean on each other, encourage each other, and applaud their fellow authors' successes.
Many of my blogging buddies participated in a very special debut book launch yesterday, the paperback release of Patry Francis' The Liar's Diary. Patry was recently diagnosed with cancer and is unable to participate in the necessary book launch tours because of her illness. I didn't find out about the online launch until late in the game, but I participated in a fun little lying contest on Church Lady's blog.
My cheeky poem about Jack and Jill garnered me a gratis copy of Patry's book. Isn't the cover intriguing?
I wish Patry a speedy recovery and I'll read her book with great interest.
