Blog day for author Patry Francis

I often complain (in a half-hearted way) about how hard it is to write and promote my work while juggling kids and a husband who's forever in another city on business, but I know how lucky I am. And I cannot imagine trying to do so while fighting cancer.

Author Patry Francis is doing exactly that, so over 300 bloggers, including bestsellers, Emmy winners, movie makers, publishing houses, etc., have come together today to give her debut novel, THE LIAR'S DIARY by Patry Francis all the attention it deserves.

The Liar's Diary is a novel about two women who couldn’t be more different. They form a friendship that will alter both their fates and their story shows just how far one woman will go to protect another. This novel signals the launch of a talented novelist who knows how to grab you by the throat and keep you guessing. Buy a copy, settle down in a big old chair, and get sucked into a page-turner you won't soon forget.

Oooooh! I love a page-turner.
Sounds like a book I need
to pick up.

What a nice thing to do.
I'm sure she must be thrilled with everyone's support. (I like the sound of her book, too)

Makes a great Valentine's day gift for your Mom, sister, friends. Proud to join this group blogging for Patry and it's fun to see the different entries on blogs.

I'm really digging this blog day for Patry. But the reason we're doing it still sucks. :(

Today IS a celebration of writing, reading and caring -- in other words, a glorious day in cyberspace.

It's been an honor to help Patry, a wonderful and generous friend to so many of us. That's why I encourage those who have read/loved the novel to "gift" this new edition to yet another friend.

Such a worthwhile thing to do.
And just when I was beginning to wonder about the benefits of blogging....
