Hi there! On Wednesday, while I ceased to exist on the Internet, this awesome site called Flurries of Words appeared. As you can see, it features my first novel IDENTITY CRISIS with links to Amazon and Amazon UK. Most awesome!
Wow! That’s a really great question. Here’s another one. Why not check out any of my 99 cent books, including my latest novel RIPTIDE?
However, these deals are for a limited time. I’m going to run the specials on ALL my ebooks until the end of April.
Wow, the day sure went fast. I was so busy, taking walks, mourning a frog, Smashing words, writing, blogging, etc.
But this was the best news of the day! #dystonia
I’ll quote the article:
Microsoft Corp co-founder Paul Allen has donated an additional $300 million to a foundation aimed at expanding research into how the brain works and how best to treat brain-related disorders.
The Allen Institute for Brain Science, based in Seattle, was established with a 2003 contribution of $100 million from the former Microsoft executive, who then donated another $100 million.
The latest contribution of $300 million will support the first four years of a 10-year plan to address critical questions about how the brain works.
Allen Jones, the institute’s chief executive officer, said the questions had to be answered if we are to understand and treat autism, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, traumatic brain injury and the myriad other brain-related diseases and disorders that affect all of us either directly or indirectly.”
You know, I darn near wept for joy when I read that.
Gives one a reason to hope, you know?
On the other hand, I damn near wept when I posted this. And I thought long and hard before posting it. But I did because I felt it had to be said. But I didn’t cry, because there’s no crying in publishing. Or baseball.
PS: Everyone’s asking, “Who’s Karen Wright?” Why aren’t they asking, “Who sent the package?” “Where did it come from?” Is it postmarked Seattle?
Or, um, Chicago? Hmm …
