I want to thank those generous people who have supported me in the Clarion West Write-a-Thon. Together, we raised $512 toward the organization’s operating costs. The Write-a-Thon is over for this year, but Clarion West does accept donations year-round. Donations to Clarion West are tax deductible. More information about the Write-a-Thon and Clarion West here, and here. My personal participating author page is here.
