Author Marcus Sakey is fighting cancer, with eBooks
Marcus Sakey, best known for his novels The Blade Itself and The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes has announced he will give 100 percent of the profits from his e-anthology Scar Tissue to Team Julian Foundation, an organization raising money to fight pediatric cancer throughout September, which is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. In October, Sakey will give 50 percent of the profits to Team Julian.
The author is actually a pretty close friend of the foundation creators, who lost their son in 2011 to an inoperable cancer. Since finding a cure to an inoperable cancer is a nearly-insurmountable battle, they decided to fight the good fight and raise money to combat this frightening disease.

Yours truly needed extra motivation though and visited Team Julian's website and found heartbreaking photos of a little boy who seemed every bit as brilliant, lively and capable as other kids his age, had he not been swept away by this horrible disease. If you need that extra push or simply want to get involved, click here.
Now excuse me, I'm off to go read Scar Tissue...
