Write-a-thon Release Party for THE SECRET UNDERGROUND

Woo-hoo! Today is Natalie Bahm's release day!

*throws confetti*

Natalie is giving all the profits of this book to help Baby Jayden and his family.

And some lovely writers and I are doing a write-a-thon today to support Natalie and her cause. It just tickles me to think of writers in community doing what we do each day, but for special purpose today. I can't control life, but I can control what I put on the page. :)

You're welcome to join in. There's no strings attached--no expectation. If you want to donate, or buy a book, that's wonderful. But, I think the act of a community coming together, even just to think well wishes for someone, matters.

I had the urge to do something, and I'm doing it.

Along with these lovely writers:

Britney (@britgulbrandsen)
Susan (Susan--ack, couldn't find your twitter handle!)
Anna (@annastanisz)
Laura (@laurapauling)

Stop by their blog or tweet a hello!

And cheer us on using the hashtag #WriteWithHeart

Or, buy THE SECRET UNDERGROUND. That's what I'm going to do when I'm all out of words today.

Now, I'm going to stop wasting my words here, and open up that word document. Because it's write-a-thon time!!

Missed the build-up to this event? Check it out here:

As always, it's never to late to join in, and this blog is a JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE. (I think I need a button for that. Jon can you make me one?)

Congrats, Natalie!!


  1. Woo-hoo! Me too.

    1. Get kids to school.
    2. Write.

    A good day. :)

  2. Whoot! Another release day. Love that cover.

    And I'm with Laura. I'll be writing soon!! Lots to accomplish today. Best of luck, ladies.

  3. Congrats to Natalie!
    And you go, girls!!!!! :)

  4. Thank you so much, Heather! I'm totally planning to write today in solidarity! It may only be a sentence or two, but I'm going to do something!

  5. Sheri--whoot is right! Thanks for stopping by--hope you got everything done today!


    Natalie--Congrats! I hope you had a fabulous book birthday! :)

  6. Heather, Thanks for spreading the word about this. I just bought the book. What a kind and generous soul Natalie is!

  7. I think it's awesome that Natalie is donating the proceeds of her book for little Jayden. I've been praying for the little guy and following his ups and downs for over a year now. He's a fighter. Special little baby.

    Yay, Heather, for this fundraiser. Yes, community coming together like this is wonderful. I'm going to buy the book. Am working on getting some kind of launch organized for my chapter book next Wed. Wasn't sure I'd meet my deadline. It's been a wild ride! Take care!
