Once again I have come up a day (or two) late and a dollar short. I am making this post on behalf of "The Liar's Diary Blog Day" that took place on January 29, 2008. The Liar's Diary is the debut novel by author Patry Francis and was released on paperback on January 29, 2008. Ms. Francis is currently fighting an aggressive form of cancer, and has fallen seriously ill during a time when she would be needing to promote her novel. So some of Ms. Francis' kind hearted writer friends and readers have taken it upon themselves to spread awareness of the novel by starting "The Liar's Diary Blog Day" and encouraging fellow bloggers to mention Ms. Francis' book. It is really great to see that how wonderfully supportive the people you meet in the blog world can be toward each other, especially in a time of need. My thoughts are with Ms. Francis and her loved ones, and send her the strength she needs to fight her battles. I learned of this from Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Books and have also seen the novel recently mentioned at Dionne Galace: It's not Chick Porn. The author of the latter blog, BAM, recently purchased The Liar's Diary, and recently shared her enthusiasm for the novel. It looks like an engrossing read. I hope you check it out.
