As you may know by now, author Eric Arvin is in the hospital, unable to breathe on his own. His fiancé T.J. Klune has been there for him the whole time, and The Crack Crew (a group of trusted authors and friends) have been working around the clock to ensure family and friends are with Eric.
Earlier this year, I reviewed Eric’s novel Woke Up In A Strange Place. It was an incredibly moving novel with vivid imagery I can still recall. I was very sad to discover that Eric will require brain surgery. I don’t know Eric or T.J. personally, but I can tell from their Facebook pages that they love each other very much. Both are talented authors in our small community and deserve our full support in this tough time. Eric’s recovery will no doubt be long and expensive.
If you have a little extra money this Xmas, The Crack Crew have set up a fund to help Eric and T.J. with expenses ranging from medical bills to hotel rooms and travel expenses for family members. Anything that you can give will help, and the money is being carefully managed by trusted people including T.J. himself.
If you’re not comfortable with a fundraising website, please consider buying Eric and T.J’s books at their publisher websites. Buying directly from their publisher gives them a larger share of the profits and supports their efforts while they recover and get their lives back on track.
