A Hardscrabble Writer
A good friend of mine needs immediate help getting to the funeral of her father-in-law. She's supporting her family on her earnings as a freelancer -- a notoriously irregular source of income -- and now she needs money fast when there won't be any income for a couple of weeks. It's a long way from her home near Plattsburgh, NY, to the funeral in Maryland. Buy a book, subscribe to her excellent marketing advice, or get an autographed book of hot gay male erotica. Or just donate.
Cindy is an excellent writer and a loyal friend. She has helped me get work when times were tight, and I'd love to be able to return the favor.
