I HAVE WINNERS!! I apologize for not drawing names last night - The winner of COMING TOGETHER FOR THE CURE is Barb V., the winner of Dianne Castell's I'M YOUR SANTA is Lisa F., and the winner of Dianne Castell's THE MORGUE THE MERRIER IS Laurie (no, not me!) If the winners will email me with their addresses at ljodamron@gmail.com, their books will be mailed out soon - I haven't received the CD copy of COMING TOGETHER yet, but will send it as soon as I do. Thanks to everyone who stopped by - I hope you'll be tempted to get your own copy of this book and support breast cancer research!!

Author Alison Kent http://www.alisonkent.com/ recently posted on her blog about a newly released anthology, COMING TOGETHER FOR THE CURE, from Phaze with proceeds being donated for breast cancer research. Alison is very generously purchasing multiple copies of this book, having received over 250 comments to her original post. Those comments were tributes of sorts to loved ones who have battled breast cancer - some battles won and some lost, but all are written from the heart. Below is some additional info about this book - I hope you'll take a sec to go check it out in more detail.
Anyone who visits here regularly knows that I'm a huge supporter of breast cancer research, participating in walks and various benefits annually. Having lost a very dear aunt to breast cancer, and with my mother and I both having our own repeated scares with this ugly, cruel disease, I decided to purchase two copies of the book, one for myself and one to offer up as a contest prize. I wish my pockets were deep enough to pick up several copies, but at the moment they're on the shallow side, so I'm limited.
I would note that the contest "book" is in CD form. I will draw one (U.S. only, please) winner from the names of those who express an interest by commenting here - the drawing will be held in the p.m. of September 8.
I'm doing this in memory of my Aunt Loey, who will lovingly remain in my heart forever.
Big hugs,

Bless you Laurie for your involvement in promoting this worthy cause. I can attest that when you have had a scare yourself, it makes you appreciate the ongoing research even more. This looks like a great anthology.

Nice to see this posted here as well. Looks like a cool book for a very worthy cause.

Thank you Laurie for your help with this disease. My mom is a 6 year breast cancer survivor so this is very near and dear to my heart, and one I support continuously.

What a great thing to do!

My Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in March and then they found out she has ovarian cancer also. She is fighting a brave fight. She turned 69 today.

What a wonderful thing for you to do. And my sympathy on the loss of your aunt.


Laurie said...

Hi Laurie,

What a wonderful way to remember your aunt Loey!

I have a friend Cherie that had breast cancer about 12 years ago. Unfortunately it has recently returned!! We are desperately trying to keep her spirits up. She has a son who is in 8th grade.

Count your blessings and definitely make every day count!

Cherie J said...

What a wonderful thing to do Laurie. So sorry about your Aunt. We had a brush with cancer with my mom a few years back. She had surgery to remove a malignant lump. She has been cancer free since then which has been a big relief to say the least. We are so thankful.

Laurie said...

Thank you Laurie for your enjoyable blog and more importantly for your efforts in the fight against breast cancer.

I'm looking forward to reading Diane Castell's book. I don't think I've read anything of hers yet.
On a sad note, my friend Cherie's younger sister has also been diagnosed with breast cancer.
