Writers Helping Others- Consortiums, Donations, and Good Books

A few cool things to talk about today.

First up is a great article on the site of the wonderful Jane Friedman by Ursula Wong, author of Purple Trees. The article talks about writer's consortiums, where writers get together for mutual help and support. Well worth the read.

And here's an interview with Ursula.


Next up is a chance to contribute to the education and growth of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in southwestern New Hampshire by making a donation of an autographed copy of one of your books to the10th Annual Online Auction.
Over 400 friends and businesses, including 137 New England and New York authors and/or illustrators, contributed to this fundraiser last year.

The Children's Center, in Harrisville, NH, is a non-profit early care and learning center for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. They serve children from over 14 towns in the Monadnock Region of southwestern NH. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go to the Center to help fund the many wonderful programs offered to young children  and their families throughout the year.

The auction will run on their website from February 21 - March 20, 2016.

And lastly, the book recommendation of the week is the Paul Forte trilogy by Pete Morin.

Start with Diary of a Small Fish and go to Full Irish and Half Irish (the latter two had Susanne O'Leary as co-author)

And check out an interview with Pete here.
