Help A Fellow Author!!...

I was browsing through my blogs that I follow and happened upon Anne Bradshaw's recent blog. I will copy and paste the post here but I want you all to go over to her blog for links and details.

Click here for links (Just in case they don't work) and read below. From Anne's blog directly:

Danyelle Leafty, author of the Fairy Godmother Dilemma series, has become really sick, and it would be great to help her out. Here is a message from her husband about what happened:

Danyelle had been working very hard to get her series up before Christmas.Then "IT" hit. Some kind of pain was there all day and by 10:45pm, she started experiencing unbearable pain that went until 12:15am when I got home. I got our four kids out of bed and loaded up, then helped Danyelle into the car and drove her to the ER.

As soon as we pulled into the hospital parking lot around 1:00am, our
six-year-old autistic son flipped out. He hates doctors. He didn't want to
be there, and I didn't want to leave my wife. I contacted someone from our church who volunteered to sit with our kids at home so I could stay with Danyelle.

Turned out to be a kidney stone. We got Danyelle home around 4:00am.
Luckily, during the last two days a great lady has filled in for me at work, so I could wait on Danyelle hand and foot, and tomorrow my mom is coming.

Having Danyelle get sick right when she was working on releasing her books has been very stressful. We'd appreciate any assistance anyone has to offer to help us get the word out before Christmas.

Three of Danyelle's books are available as eBooks, and she has five total for this series. Here are the three on Kindle: The Fairy Godmother Dilemma: Catspell, The Fairy Godmother Dilemma: Firespell, and The Fairy Godmother Dilemma: Applespell.

Tweeted about her books being available. Always a pleasure to help a fellow writer.

Mel Chesley said...

Awesome Angela! Thanks very much for that. I know she'll appreciate it.

I don't know any kids that have ereaders or I would buy the books for someone. Kidney stones suck. And somehow these things always happen at exactly the wrong time. I hope she's betteer. Very kind of you to help out.

Sweet of you to re-post this. I have been sick as well, two and a half months now with acute bronchitis. The pain is out of this world. Can't do any writing except I seem to manage an occasional flash piece for my blog. But that wipes me out. I have a book to put up and three others in the works. So frustrating.

Ew, bronchitis is the worst! If you need anything, let me know. I'd be happy to help!
