http://a1055.g.akamai.net/f/1055/1401/5h/images.barnesandnoble.com/images/20120000/20120155.JPGPatry Francis (http://www.patryfrancis.com/) is a talented author and lovely person whose debut suspense novel THE LIAR'S DIARY came out last spring in hardcover from Dutton. The trade paper release is January 29th, but a few weeks ago, Patry was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. She's had several surgeries, and her prognosis is good, but given that Patry won't have much energy for promoting, a number of bloggers are banding together to do it for her.

I sent an email to Karen and I already did a short post today. I'll do another one at the end of the month. As a cancer survivor myself, I really want to do something to help out.

I've just emailed Karen and I'm looking forward to participating on the 29th. This is a wonderful idea and I love the way the writing community is coming together to show their support.

I just emailed as well. It's a bit late, and my blog is too tiny anyways for them to much care, but I decided to buy the hardcover and write a review for the 29th.

(Yes, I hope it's favorable too; sounds like it will be.)

Plus one of the main characters is a hawt sexy violinist and composer.

1-clicked the hardcover, by the way--looks like some people are thinking the same way.
