Great items up for bid to help Bridget fight her cancer!

This is Bridget. Three things happened to Bridget in February:
1. She got an agent for her young adult novel.
2. She got married.
3. She found out she has Stage Four colon cancer.

I met Bridget a year ago at an Oregon SWCBI event. She had just moved to Portland from Wisconsin, where she was a teen librarian. She is a beautiful person, inside and out. When she found out she had an agent, she was just glowing. A few days later she went to a naturopath for headaches and vision problems. She ended up in the ER – and learned very quickly that she had cancer. Big, bad cancer.

Today, Bridget is going in for her second grueling round of chemo to help fight her Stage Four colon cancer.

To help defray some of the costs, authors and artists all over the US have banded together to offer their services in an online auction.

Would you like the first pages of a manuscript critiqued? Are you ready to market a book,need a bookmark or advice on a query letter? Want to get away to Torrey, Utah and take in the fabulous national parks in the area? In the market for some signed books? Looking for a handmade baby quilt, handmade book, jewelry and more?

Check out the items at Bridget Zinn Auction at The money will help her with medical expenses.

If you could spread the word, I would be grateful.

More book cover goodness

There’s a great blog called “Pop Culture Junkie” that covers reading, movies, TV, music, etc. But the part I like best about her site is her comparisons of look-alike covers – some with the same cover art, same with the same model in a slightly different pose.

Like did you know the “editor” [widely regarded as the writer] of Go Ask Alice had a book out called Annie’s Baby that looks a lot like the cover of Story of a Girl (but as far as I can tell, the girls are not the same person]?

Look and learn here.
