Help Tom Piccirilli Beat Cancer
You may be familiar with Tom Piccirilli or you may not know him at all. He writes terrific crime fiction and horror. He's a four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award for fiction and a finalist for the Edgar Allan Poe Award and many others. His stories are dark, gloomy, gory and thoroughly awesome.
A few weeks ago, Tom checked in at the hospital for headaches and vision issues and an MRI revealed he had a baseball sized tumor on his brain. Today he's undergoing emergency surgery to remove the tumor and he will undergo chemotherapy and radiotherapy over the next few weeks. It's not gonna be a pleasant Fall for him and his family.
The literary community has already rallied around him. His niece Shannon has set up an IndieGogo Fundraiser that is already doing very well, and you can also buy one of his books from his ePublisher Crossroads Press, who are giving 100% of the royalties to Tom until the end of the year, to help him with his medical bills.
Tom is an incredibly gifted writer. His latest novel, The Last Kind Words, has garnered serious hype (and yours truly can vouch for it). His previous works such as Every Shallow Cut, Shadow Season and A Choir of Ill Children are all considered underground classics in the noir and horror genres. Now is the perfect time to check out his work. Reading a terrific book to help a terrific writer write some more terrific books-- it's a win-win situation.
