The Kindness of Friends and Strangers – Author Jackie Barbosa

Some of you may already know that Romance author Jackie Barbosa’s teenage son was killed last week in a car accident. There is no recovering from a loss like that. We — all of us — are a community, and we reach out to others in times of need and sorrow.

There is a memorial fund for him, which the family would like to turn into a scholarship fund in his memory, link here. Fellow authors Beverly Kendall and Courtney Milan came up with the idea of authors highlighting Jackie’s books the week of March 21st.

So, here are some links:

At my blog I have a post about The Lesson Plan, one of Jackie’s historical romances with links to various vendors (any associate links at my site are Jackie’s, not mine. I don’t think there were any, though.)

Beverley Kendall has a post about Behind The Red Door, which Kensington Publishing has kindly put on sale for $2.99 until April 1st.

By the time you read this, there will be another post at my blog about Skin in the Game, one of Jackie’s erotic romances… in case you like something spicier.

It is an unspeakable tragedy to lose a child, and I want to do what I can to support her during this terrible time. I hope you will, too.
