Later I’ll be giving away books, and updating you on our team, THE BODICE RIPPERS, and the upcoming Avon Breast Cancer Walk. But First things first!

Courtney, Tessa, Leigh, and I want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to our wonderful honor roll donors! These are folks who have made a direct donation to team Bodice Rippers. With only a month left until the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, We’d love to add you to our honor roll. Please consider making a direct contribution. We love big donations of course, but small donations add up. If you can spare the price of a movie, we’re grateful! I never post amounts unless specifically requested. You can donate to our team here.

We are so very grateful for each one of you who has purchased THREE WEDDINGS AND A MURDER, helped us spread the word, or made a direct donation.

The Avon walk for breast cancer takes place September 22, 2012. We’ll be putting our tootsies where our mouths are and walking nearly forty miles for a cause close to our hearts. We’d love to reach our goal of $10,000.

Here’s how things are breaking down so far:

From THREE WEDDINGS AND A MURDER: Royalties received as of August 16th, 2012 $1,655.01 Remember, ALL PROFITS from TWAAM go to the walk.

From Private Donations- $835.00

Actual funds in hand and applied to Avon Breast Cancer Walk=$2,490.01

However, we also are due (but have not yet been paid) estimated royalties from TWAAM-$3,500

Including these royalties our total fundraising efforts as of August 20, 2012= $5,990.01

On the personal side, Team Bodice Rippers has had a wild year.

Courtney has continued to blaze a trail for independent authors everywhere with her New York Times and USA Today best-selling books, and she’s relocated across the country and purchased her first home!

Leigh released her debut novel to critical acclaim. But the big news is she has been blessed with a soon-to-be blessed event! She’ll be cheering us on from the nursery with her newborn bundle of joy! We will miss her terribly on the Avon Walk, but she will be there in spirit and is an integral part of our team. We’re pretty sure delivering her new little guy will be harder than walking forty miles, and we are sending her every wish for a safe and happy delivery.

Tessa…she just won a RITA!!! Can you hear our collective heels clicking in glee? Oh, yes, and she also hit the USA today list and the New York Times list!

Carey released her debut novel to critical acclaim, but her big news is she married the man of her dreams and became a “new mom” again to a fifteen-year-old sweetie-pie!

Where does the money for the specific Avon Santa Barbara Walk go? We think you’ll be as impressed as we are. Check out this link for more info on where the money goes.

If you’d like to help us meet our goal, you can purchase THREE WEDDINGS AND A MURDER here,  or you can make a direct donation here.

Thank you all for being part of our journey. We cherish our community.
