Vicki Batman - to be honored is quite nice AND In Memory of a Friend

On Tuesday morning, I was catching up on email and found this:

My sincere thanks for making this a great month on the Romance Lives Forever blog.
Here are the top posts (judging by page views).

1. JMS Books, LLC

3. Daisy Banks
4. Danita Minnis

Honorable mention: Rolyn Anderson and Vicki Batman.
My thanks to all who took part this month. You made Romance Lives Forever a great place to discover new books and authors.
To get selected for anything is awesome. And nice. And humbling.
But the real genius behind the curtain is Kayelle Allen, founder of Marketing for Romance Writers and Romance Lives Forever blog and author. And that's only THREE of her hats.
Thank you, Kayelle, Romance Lives Forever, and fans of RLF. Here's a link to the Gem Stats for September:

In Memory of a Friend

Many years ago, I went to Jazzercise and met a friend who passed from cancer. But on one October day, we shared something quite remarkable. I was ecstatic my story was included in MuseItUp Publishing's Lavender Dreams. Here's a bit about it: Lavender Dreams is an anthology of short stories. All royalties are donated by the authors and cover artist to help raise funds for cancer research.

MuseItUp Authors dedicate this book to all who have been affected in one way or the other by cancer. All royalties from the sales of this book will be donated each year to a cancer research organization, or hospice in order to further combat and find a cure.

The book is divided into three sections: non-fiction, fiction based on true stories, and fictional stories—ten stories generously donated by the authors to help raise funds for cancer.

This book is dedicated to the memory of one of our dear editors who passed away in 2011 from cancer, Karen McGrath.
