Altered Perceptions: Very cool, and a worthy cause!

So a friend of mine, Robison Wells, is a very gifted writer and all-around nice guy. He has a beautiful family and a very sweet dog. He suffers from multiple mental illnesses, and has debilitating issues that have stressed his family financially to the breaking point.

I'm pleased to announce that I get to be part of an anthology written by a collection of authors to raise funds for this little family. I'm sharing print space with some amazing people! The authors contributing to the anthology, Altered Perceptions, are:

Brodi Ashton
Annette Lyon
Sarah Eden
Luisa Perkins
J. Scott Savage
Ally Condie
Jennifer Moore
Nancy Campbell Allen
Josi Kilpack
Jessica Day George
Larry Correia
Kiersten White
Brandon Mull
Erin Bowman
Bree Despain
Shannon Hale
Sara Zarr
Aprilynne Pike
Claudia Gray
Lauren Oliver
SJ Kincaid
Seanan McGuire
Carrie Jones
Dan Wells
Rob Wells
Brandon Sanderson
Mary Robinette Kowal
Howard & Sandra Tayler

Awesome company, right? And the theme of the anthology is kind of like a "deleted scenes" thing. Or "bonus scenes." My contribution is a bonus scene from my gothic steampunk romance, Beauty and the Clockwork Beast. The scene was so much fun to write, and is in the point of view of a character who is actually a ghost in the novel itself. The bonus chapter details her last living moments and provides a lead-in to the story. Spooky and wonderful!

So this is the link to the Altered Perceptions: 

There are some awesome perks that come along with certain dollar donations, but even just $1 makes a difference! Please contribute if you can, or buy the book! You will love it.

I reviewed his book On Second Sight on Amazon. I keep buying copies and sharing them with friends. :)
So sorry to hear that he struggling with heavy burdens like OCD.
Thank you and the others for what you're doing to help. Keep up the good works!
