Well, the response from the lesfic community has been fantastic, which comes as no surprise to me. It’s been wonderful receiving notes from fellow readers and writers, all of whom are animal lovers of some kind. As of this morning, I’ve sold a total of 31 signed copies of my novels to a variety of individuals, many of whom chipped in a little extra to help. I’ve also received a very, very generous donation for Maggie’s ultrasound from a fellow author who is a longtime supporter of animals and their people.
The messages of support and the heartfelt wishes for Maggie’s recovery have been so uplifting, especially on this particular weekend when the memory of humanity’s capacity for hatred–and renewal–is so powerful. In thanks, Maggie, my daughter Alex, and I taped a short message on the webcam this morning:
At this point, I still have 1 or 2 copies of each book available, so if you’d like to contribute to Maggie’s treatment, email me: katechristie8 at gmail.com. And thanks again to everyone for keeping Maggie and our family in their thoughts. We appreciate it!
