Day Late, But Still Great

There’s a heartwarming story going around the web about Patry Francis and her book The Liar’s Diary. Patry busted her hump writing the book, which got rave reviews in hardcover. Then she was diagnosed with cancer, making her unable to do much if anything to help promote the book.

Yesterday, the book came out in paperback, and over 300 bloggers banded together to flog it for she who could not flog. I had planned to join in but had a relatively insane day yesterday in what’s been a nutty year already. But me being a day late doesn’t make the book any less good.

Be sure to check it out if you can. Even if it’s not your type of tale, make sure to read Susan Henderson’s excellent encapsulation about how this all came together.
