Happy Birthday, Brit Blaise!

brit blaiseOn this day in history, a special friend was born. I met her online, through my publisher, and instantly liked her. She was a snarky, sassy, spitfire of a broad who was always up for a dare.

We’d race each other through writing sprints and NaNoWriMos with the ‪#‎sbpcagematch‬.  See some of her tweets below.

Then her battle with breast cancer began.
We rallied around her as she fought the good fight
And won.

When round 2 rolled around, she fought again but punch by punch, her glimmer began to fade.

We celebrate by celebrating her life and the body of work she’s created for her readers.

It’s hard to let go of friends like Brit Blaise, but even more difficult is living a life without stars that shine in it like she has for so many.  

Thank you for writing all those cowboys!

To all our readers: Brit’s fight was expensive and without a way to make direct donations, we would ask you to please buy her books.  Buy lots of her books and give them to your family & friends.  The royalties from sales will help Brit’s family pay for all the care she has received and continues to receive in hospice.
