Project Book Babe
You probably don’t know Faith Hochhalter, but you should. Wonderful woman, great book buyer, all around terrific person who has helped the careers of many struggling authors. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is now in treatment. She’s tough, but this is the kind of thing that no one should face alone, which is how PROJECT BOOK BABE came to be.
What is it? A benefit to raise money for her treatment. On April 4th in Tempe, Arizona, from 2 – 5pm, a VERY cool event is going to be taking place at the Marcos de Niza High School Auditorium. There will be music. There will be a raffle. There will be an auction. There will be a reception. And there will also be an hour and a half long author panel that you won’t want to miss. Who’s on it? I’m going to list the names in alphabetical order:
Frank Beddor (The Looking Glass Wars series)
Chris Gall (There’s Nothing to do on Mars)
P.J. Haarsma (The Softwire Series)
Shannon Hale (The Princess Academy)
J.S. Lewis (The Revenge of the Shadow King)
Dean Lorey (The Nightmare Academy series)
Stephenie Meyer (The Twilight series)
Brandon Mull (The Fablehaven series)
James A. Owen (Here, There be Dragons)
Janette Rallison (Just One Wish)
Laini Taylor (The Faeries of Dreamdark series)
Read that list carefully. You might notice a fairly big name or two. Depending on the ticket you buy, you get all kinds of goodies including signed books and, I don’t know, a whole bunch of stuff. Check out the website HERE.
The tickets are selling out quickly — in fact the Platinum memberships are already gone — so if you’re interested, grab one while you can. It’s for a good cause and a good person and, let’s face it, there’s got to be at least one name on that list that interests you.
