As you may know, I’m headed out of town for a few days and I’ve decided to leave this post up while I’m gone as a way to help publicize this collection of short stories, out today, for which all proceeds will go towards the Lupus Foundation of America. I have a history of lupus in my family and my grandmother suffered from the disease for as long as I knew her. I haven’t had a chance to read these stories yet myself, but it looks like a great book and it’s definitely a worthwhile cause.
