Help Me Help a Friend

All right, folks. I need your help.  Some of you may already know that my mentor David Farland‘s son Ben was recently in a terrible accident which will likely run his family into over a million dollars in medical bills (they don’t have insurance). Because of the brain trauma and all the related injuries, he is fighting for his life every day. The ordeal has been so hard for his family. I’ve been trying to chip in with the fundraisers so far, but I want to do something more.

So, I’m announcing that, for the month of May, all the money I make on the sales of my books will go to Ben’s cause. Obviously, DaLR is free, but that means that basically you can download the whole trilogy for under $10. This fundraiser also applies to the paperbacks. So if you would, please consider tweeting this post, posting it to FB to share it with your reader friends, or better yet, gift the books to someone you think might enjoy them.  Or, even better, do all three!  🙂

Please help me help a friend!  Dave is just an incredible teacher and writer, and I really want to give back somehow for all that he’s done for me.

Thanks, y’all.

    Hi! I read about you on Ben’s site yesterday. This is an incredible gesture, and I and likely some of my indie author friends are going to help out. I’ve posted about Ben and your efforts and the Indie Authors For Ben effort here:

    I’ll check back as often as I can.

    For some reason, I don’t think my comment went through? Unless you are screening them?

    I’ll leave two, in case. This one will be shorter: I started a group to help Ben Wolverton, inspired by your generosity.

    Details are here:

    Thank you so much, Briane! I’m so happy to have your support, and I hope that other authors will join in! The good we can do together will be so much greater than what any one of us can do alone! Thanks for spreading the word…I’ll be copying your Indie Authors for Ben post wherever I can, too.

    Sorry for the delay in approval — I do moderate the posts (you wouldn’t believe how many junk comments I get!), and I just got notified of this one this morning. =)
