You can also read all about Colby Marshall's last book at a time charity event, Trade the Day, below.
About TRADE THE DAY:
Minor character, Major disease:
During my first draft of my new novel, THE TRADE, a friend’s young daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. On a whim, I named a minor character after the little girl, Alaina, a hopeful thought that if Alaina could survive one of my deadly thrillers, the real Alaina could be okay, too.
24 Hours, 23 Guest Authors:
On August 23, 2013, an awesome group of authors will band together to launch the Trade the Day blog-a-thon on colbymarshall.com/blog. Every hour, a new post will go up from a different author. We’ll have awesome prizes, like signed copies of hot books, author swag, q&a’s with authors, and more! We even have giveaways from great authors not guest posting that day but who have joined in to further this huge day.
Most importantly, during the blog-a-thon’s 24 hours, from midnight to midnight on August 23, all gross profits from sales of Colby Marshall’s THE TRADE made on her publisher’s website, stairwaypress.com, will go directly to Team Alaina, Alaina’s own fundraising team to benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night event.
Blood cancer isn’t fictional, but through days like this, we can make it so.
