Donate to Help Haiti

The destruction in Haiti from the earthquake is beyond horrific. I don’t know if this is as bad or worse than the 2004 tsunami that devastated Indonesia, but from the pictures it looks like there are very few structures left standing.  It’s been a rough year financially for many of us, but when I compare what I have during the worst of times to what the earthquake survivors have… well, it’s a no brainer to donate something to try and help.  I’m donating to Doctors Without Borders (see the button/link on my sidebar).  This organization already has people in Haiti providing badly needed medical assistance – most medical facilities in Haiti were badly damaged or destroyed in the quake.  To donate, go here (or click on the button on my sidebar) and to keep up with their progress, go here.

Another way to donate via Lisa Brackmann at Paper Tiger  “Text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to @RedCross relief efforts in #Haiti. It is *that* simple. Learn more here.”

Thanks, Lisa and Nathan Bransford, for supplying the links.

Happy New Year

And yes, I really will start blogging again, probably in a week or so.  Lots of other things going on right now that make writing of any sort rather difficult, but my priorities are with my current WIP.  It has zombies, doncha know…

Also, I’m now the president of Sisters In Crime, NorCal, and with the presidential tiara comes responsibilities, such as writing a welcome for the first newsletter of 2010.  Come to think of it, I don’t have the tiara yet.  I guess I have to write that welcome first.  Dang!

If you’re just dying for a blog post from me, please visit Moonlight, Lace and Mayhem for an interview I did, plus an excerpt from CHAMPAGNE.    And for a lovely review of CHAMPAGNE, please visit Dark Divas (and yes, I’m gonna figure out how to get the little Dark Diva banner up on my website!).  I am behind on my self-promotion and want to thank both Carrie at M,L&M and Melissa at DD.  Thank you, Ladies!

Anyway, Happy New Year to all my friends and readers (one and the same, really!).   May we all have a prosperous, stress-free and creatively fulfilling 2010.
