Book Fundraiser for Oklahoma
* Literati Literature Lovers Blog is doing a fundraiser for the Red Cross to benefit communities affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. Donate and enter to win signed books by a bunch of different authors. I’ve contributed signed copies of Emilie and the Hollow World, The Cloud Roads, The Serpent Sea, The Siren Depths, and Wheel of the Infinite.
They’re hoping to raise $2500 by June 7. Please pass the info on.
The storms that were coming down through Dallas got here last night. We had huge thunder and lightning and pounding rain, but no hail, at least at our house.
It’s doing great things for our garden. On Monday I realized I didn’t have a vegetable for a side dish for dinner (oven-fried chicken) and went out in the garden and found a squash ready to go. We’ve already had tons of lettuce and some green tomatoes (which are great fried, sauteed, or baked in pies), and it looks like the okra will be ready soon.
I updated my web site a bit, added the link to the interview with me by Liz Bourke on Tor.com, plus added a separate page listing the the reprint ebooks I have out for $2.99 so they’re easier to find.
Also reposted some of the fan art I’ve gotten for the Books of the Raksura on tumblr.
It’s been horrible watching the news in Oklahoma. I know a lot of people there from the SF/F community, and felt very lucky when they all checked in on Facebook to say they were all right.
To help, you can donate to the Red Cross web site or text REDCROSS to 90999. The Animal Resource Center of Oklahoma City has a link to a donation page for animal relief. If anyone knows any other places to donate, please post in the comments.
Here’s a couple of tumblr posts I did in the past couple of days:
