Here is some more info about the fundraiser that author Lydia Kang is hosting. Please consider giving to help these kids out! There are some great prizes for donating, too!

AUTHORS FOR CCHS

A Literary Fundraiser to Benefit Rare Respiratory Disorder

 

Authors around the country have come together to raise money for Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome (CCHS), a rare, life-threatening disorder that affects breathing. The initiative is spearheaded by author and physician, Lydia Kang, whose debut novel, CONTROL, features a protagonist with CCHS.

 

"When I wrote CONTROL, I wanted to create a heroine who faced struggles that readers don’t always get to see,” says Kang. “After the book released, I wanted to bring a focus back to the non-fictional heroes—the children with CCHS and the people who champion them."

 

The funds raised will go to the Center of Autonomic Medicine in Pediatrics, or CAMP, a program run through Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. There, With sophisticated diagnostic testing and pioneering research, CAMP provides individualized services for these patients referred from 50 different countries and conducts research aimed to maximize their quality of life.

 

Since this disease primarily affects children, it’s fitting that most of the authors participating in the fundraiser write for children, tweens and teens. Donors will receive thank you gifts ranging from bookmarks and stickers, to three and five book bundles, to a character name in an upcoming book from one of the participating authors. Everyone who donates $50 or more will be invited to participate in a virtual VIP party with the participating authors.

 

The group hopes to raise $5000 or more and the fundraiser runs through September 20, 2014.

 

"I’ve been so grateful for the authors who have donated so selflessly,” says Kang. “The CCHS community needs research dollars, so every effort to raise funds and awareness is a huge help."

Hello everyone! Exciting news, I’m teaming up with Rachel M. Wilson, author of Don’t Touch (out September 2nd) to host a giveaway inspired by her novel! Here’s a message from her about the contest:
"Don’t Touch is the story of Cadence Finn, a talented actress who’s desperate to play Ophelia in her school’s production of Hamlet, but she finds this challenging because of her newly developed fear of touch—especially since the guy playing Hamlet is “far too touchable.”Theater kids are known for being bold when it comes to fashion, and Caddie is no exception. She and her former bff Mandy used to start fashion trends all the time, so when Caddie buys a pair of lavender evening gloves to protect her skin, she passes them off to Mandy as an artistic quirk. In honor of Caddie’s fashion flair, we’re holding a giveaway! Two winners will receive a signed ARC of Don’t Touch and a pair of gloves like Caddie’s!Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to use Polyvore to create an outfit inspired by the cover of Don’t Touch OR a look for a modern-day Ophelia.”
