Many of you are already followers of Writer and Blogger Extraordinaire Roland Yeomans, who blogs at Writing in the Crosshairs.
If you are a follower of Roland's blog, you know that he lives in New Orleans and intertwines the fabulous city into all of his works. New Orleans is one of the best cities in the country for music, food and the arts. The downside is that the city is several feet below sea level and is located in a prime spot on the coast for hurricanes.
Unfortunately, New Orleans was hit, yet again, with Hurricane Isaac last week. This came on the 7th anniversary of the devastating Hurricane Katrina.
In the midst of the carnage, our friend Roland was hit by a car while taking out his trash. The car's breaks went out in the floodwaters, taking him out with them. He was hospitalized with only catastrophic insurance and was released just in time for rent to be due.
Without money to cover his rent, and mounting hospital bills surely piling up, I'd like to encourage any of you that haven't read any of Roland's books to purchase them now. What a better way to spend a lazy Labor Day holiday than to do a little reading?
Already read Roland's books? How about "gifting" them to a friend?
You can find them on Amazon here
Roland has not asked for anything but I think it would be nice of us to show him our support. He has always been very supportive to me as a blogger and I have a feeling he is done the same for many of you.
Happy Labor Day everyone!
