Project Book Babe

You probably don't know Faith Hochhalter, but you should. Wonderful woman, great book buyer, all around terrific person who has helped the careers of many struggling authors. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is now in treatment. She's tough, but this is the kind of thing that no one should face alone, which is how PROJECT BOOK BABE came to be.

What is it? A benefit to raise money for her treatment. On April 4th in Tempe, Arizona, from 2 - 5pm, a VERY cool event is going to be taking place at the Marcos de Niza High School Auditorium. There will be music. There will be a raffle. There will be an auction. There will be a reception. And there will also be an hour and a half long author panel that you won't want to miss. Who's on it? I'm going to list the names in alphabetical order:

Frank Beddor (The Looking Glass Wars series)
Chris Gall (There's Nothing to do on Mars)
P.J. Haarsma (The Softwire Series)
Shannon Hale (The Princess Academy)
J.S. Lewis (The Revenge of the Shadow King)
Dean Lorey (The Nightmare Academy series)
Stephenie Meyer (The Twilight series)
Brandon Mull (The Fablehaven series)
James A. Owen (Here, There be Dragons)
Janette Rallison (Just One Wish)
Laini Taylor (The Faeries of Dreamdark series)

Read that list carefully. You might notice a fairly big name or two. Depending on the ticket you buy, you get all kinds of goodies including signed books and, I don't know, a whole bunch of stuff. Check out the website HERE.

The tickets are selling out quickly -- in fact the Platinum memberships are already gone -- so if you're interested, grab one while you can. It's for a good cause and a good person and, let's face it, there's got to be at least one name on that list that interests you. :)

Take care...

I know her!!! She is truly amazing and I'm not just saying that as her big sister :)

Thank you for all you are doing in support of Faith. I am overwhelmed and deeply touched by the response in support of my sister.

Oh and I have added you as a friend here on LJ.

I am also overwhelmed at the awesome generosity in support of my daughter, Faith. Words seem so inadequate to express how thankful and grateful I am. Thank you all, so much. Faith's Mom

I would love to be a part of this event, but I am currently in law school and unable to travel for the weekend (we have finals soon). I wish that there was some way for those who can not attend to participate with the event. If they change the option of purchasing the ticket and the items being mailed... PLEASE... let me know!! I feel that this is such an amazing event and wish I could be a part of it!

Re: sigh
Hi there. So sorry you can't make the event, but congrats on making your way through law school and good luck on those finals! If you're interested, there's an ebay auction going on that's associated with the event that already has a lot of cool stuff in it (and more to come). You can access it by going on the project book babe link above. Take care...
