Release Day

Yesterday was release day in the world of home entertainment. Typically, books, music, and DVDs are officially released every Tuesday.

This is not your typical release announcement.

Because Patry Francis is battling aggressive cancer, she's not able to promote her book. So over 300 authors, including some very big names, are doing it for her.

I'm not a big name, nor am I part of the official effort, but I'm completely blessed at the moment, and it's not that hard to do a little favor for someone who needs it. So check out her website, blog, and buy here if the book interests you.

Since Francis's book appears to be one that explores the darker side of real life, how about the opposite to balance it? We all need balance in our lives--I keep telling everyone that.

Jody Wallace also had a release yesterday. A retelling of the fairy tale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," her book is bound to be as delightful as her trailer (see below).

I haven't read this book yet, but knowing Jody, it's sure to be full of snarky humor, my favorite kind. Her website is here, her Writer & Cat blog here (yes, the cat blogs), and the book can be bought here.

Happy reading!
