Although I missed attending the RWA ’10 convention in Orlando, I have seen many wonderful pictures of authors, agents and publishers enjoying meetings, lunches, outings and other convention fare. One addition event was a raffle in honor of one of romance’s own writers who is currently a breast cancer patient, Jennifer Haymore. A beautiful lady and a fabulous writer (I have been a fan of hers for quite a while), this raffle was for critiques, for books and for having a character in an upcoming Haymore book named after the winner. What a wonderful publisher! My sincere admiration to you, Forever Romance!
Remember to give to your favorite cancer organization each year. It is from these funds that cures will be found and patients receive extra support. Based on personal losses, I often favor the American Lung Association (in memory of my sister and grandmother) and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and Gilda Radner Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry (in memory of my mom). There are so many associations that help with research funding, patient assistance and family support for battling many types of cancers…all could use a helping hand.
A little support goes a long way,
