Good morning everyone. I write today to bring your attention to an author who could use whatever help we can provide. The historical fiction community is such a tight knit community of authors/readers/bloggers that I know so many will want to know/share/do what they can.
Kate Quinn, author of several books, Mistress of Rome among my favorites, suffered a devastating house fire this past week. She had a brief stint in the hospital, but otherwise everyone made it out safe (doggie included) - however, the house is a disaster. I have met Kate several times and she is such a sweet, hilariously funny lady - my heart goes out to her.
So here is how you can help (in whatever way you are able/wish to):
- Fellow author, Stephanie Dray (who has written a series on Cleopatra's Daughter, including Lily of the Nile) has set up a Go Fund Me page where all of the funds raised will go to Kate and her husband to help get them back on their feet. Any amount you can give, no matter how small, is appreciated.
- Pre-order Kate's upcoming novel, to be released March 3, 2015 - Lady of the Eternal City (or buy any of her other books, links below)
- Spread the word - Twitter, Facebook, blog about it. The more who know, the more who can help.
Kate, we wish you a speedy recovery and hope you can get back on your feet fast!
