Too much of my state is on fire again this summer. The six hundred-plus residents of the small town of Pateros had to evacuate last night, and I understand somewhere around one hundred of their homes won’t be there when they return.
From the cool joy of talking and learning about writing and books over here in Seattle, my small contribution is to donate my share of all proceeds from An Alien’s Guide sales at the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference this weekend to the local Red Cross. So if you are coming down to our Author Autograph Party tonight, know that your purchase will do a small good for a small town.
If you aren’t local, then take a moment to send a thought to the universe for anyone who needs our attention and support, and share what you can.
