Help a fellow author

Patry Francis is a talented author whose debut novel THE LIAR'S DIARY came out in hardcover from Dutton last spring. The trade paper release is today, 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.

'THE LIAR'S DIARY blog day' is today. Please pop over to
Patry's website and check it out. In support of Patry Francis and this remarkable blog initiative, Penguin Group USA would like to offer 15% off the paperback edition of The Liar’s Diary when purchased online from the Penguin website until 2/15/2008. On the shopping cart page, enter PATRY in the ‘coupon code’ field and click ‘update cart’ to activate it.

If you have a moment, check out her book. Or send her your thoughts and prayers and healing energy. Thank you!!

Alyssa - My thoughts and prayers go out to Patry and her family. My mother is a breast cancer survivor and she currently has a friend battling lung cancer (her friend never smoked). I know it is a difficult road that Patry is going down right now. I'll check out her website. Thanks for the information.
