The clocks are springing ahead for most of us, this weekend, so to celebrate the longer days, I'm taking 33% off e-book copies of Saving Daylight... which includes my illustrated short story, The Lost Hour! This sale is good until midnight on Monday, March 12th, so please hurry and take advantage of it while you can!
I also want to take a moment in this post to thank all of you who helped last week by donating to Bella's fundraiser. While she is feeling better and out of the woods, we still have not reached our goal. Please keep spreading the word, so that we can pay off the last of her vet bills and square our debts with the wonderful ER doctors who helped us get her back on her feet.
Also: in just four days, it's Pi Day! Since In The Cards' Ral O'Dailigh is an enormous fan of pie, I'm going to be having an In The Cards flash sale on that day. If you haven't grabbed a copy of it, yet, mark your calendars ... the sale will apply to both print AND e-book purchases!
That's all the news I have for you this week, Friends of Aviario! Please stay tuned ... I have some things in the works which are going to make you fall in love with this little town all over again.
Until next week, I remain your Concierge,
Just a brief update, this week, with my apologies: life still refuses to calm down around my little Burrow ... I'm heading south to Connecticut tomorrow. Normally, I'd be ecstatic to see the area which inspired Aviario again, but this trip is for the memorial service of a dear, loving, and wonderful cousin who lost a long, hard, fight with cancer. Being able to be with family, even for a day or two, should help ... and of course, a few pictures of the area for the Aviario Travel Guide might come back with me, too. I'm discovering more and more that I have to make my own happy moments.
I have my first Indie Book Review of the year lined up: the first book of The Letter Mage, by Alexandra Penn! It looks like an amazing read, and I have a review copy in hand which I'm looking forward to digging into. Fantasy, magic, space, and some wonderful LGBTQ representation? It sounds like everything I enjoy reading, and more. I can't wait to let you all know how it is!
My final note for this week is a bit of a somber one, as well ... normally, I only promote my books here on my website, and am more apt to nudge you toward my Patreon for crowdfunding, but two days ago, one of our lovely cats got suddenly ill. I've set up a YouCaring fundraiser for her ER vet bills and any procedures she may require ... Even if you can't afford to chip in, I would appreciate it very much if you could help spread the word. The kindness of strangers over the last 24 hours since I opened the fundraiser is astounding: a person I don't know from Adam donated $200. Knowing that there are other kind hearts out there in the world gives me so much hope: not just for Bella, but for our world and our future.
You can see the fundraiser, share, or donate @ YouCaring: Help Us Fix Bella's Belly.
Next week, I will have better news: good news, and progress, and wonderful things to share with you all... even though I'm admittedly saying so under sheer force of will. I can't give up on any of this: it's not even close to a choice. I love you all, and I'll see you next week.
