Please Support 8 Year Old Jake (the Snake) Santoriella and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

My friend, Author Michael Balkind, is currently running a fundraiser for 8 year old Jake (the Snake) Santoriella. Jake (from Mahopac, NY) has just gone through his 5th round of chemo at Memorial Sloan Kettering. As soon as he is in remission Jake will be getting a bone marrow transplant from his twin brother, Chase.

Michael is donating profits from his two (Westchester based) novels, Sudden Death and Dead Ball, to Jake & the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through October 15th.
The cost is only $0.99 for an eBook (Kindle, iPad,Nook, Sony, Smashwords) or $12.78 for the paperback at
Besides a book, each order will also  get an entry to win a huge ESPN banner signed by the ESPN Anchors & Analysts. 

These books were endorsed by bestselling authors:  James Patterson, Clive Cussler, Wendi Corsi Staub, John Lescroart and Tim Green. If they liked them you probably will too.  The books and the banner will also make great gifts.

Where else will such a small amount of money do so much?  - A donation to a great cause (LLS), a great book, and a chance to win a really unique prize.

Please visit to get more details and place an order in support of Jake the Snake. He is an amazing kid!

Stacy - thanks so much for your help with Jake the Snake's leukemia fundraiser. Your blog entry really helps a lot. I hope some of your subscribers will order a book to help Jake.
We find out later today if his 5th round of chemo got him into remission so his twin brother Chase can provide a bone marrow transplant. Please, please, let that be the case!
Thanks again,
