Writer in need
Forwarded from a private writers' forum I belong to:
What can you get for $2? Or in English pounds, just a few pennies over a quid? Not much, for the most part.
But now $2 will get a writer out of a hole.
No, not me, but a friend, EJ Knapp. He’s slowly sinking, and we have the chance to throw him a lifeline.
From his blog: I hit the stress wall a year ago and it wasn’t pretty. I ended up losing my job and going on disability. Since then I’ve been struggling to keep things afloat, juggling credit card payments, a mortgage on a house that refuses to sell, rent and a car payment. The credit cards are long gone and by now my credit rating is sub-zero. My retirement account is gone. The house will likely be lost. And five days ago Exchange Bank took my car.
Now don’t raise an eyebrow, thinking this is the run-up to a scam - it’s not. EJ came up with a pretty audacious idea. He has 20 days to save his car, his lifeline. He needs money, but not charity. He’s offering you something for next to nothing. Read on…
Backspace is a writers’ group we both belong to. A large proportion are pro writers, serious novelists with books on the shelves in bookstores, and many of them have donated stories and poetry for sale through his site, at $2 a hit. The list is growing fast. The plan is 1500 sales in 20 days. And all it takes is $2 from you to score some great reading while giving EJ back his lifeline.
Is that too much to ask? What have you got to lose? Buy a story, save a life.http://www.ejknapp.com/1500.htm
