This post came from Facebook today from Jessica Faust Bookends. I am reposting it here to reach out to other authors.
Authors are an amazing group of people. Today authors from all over the Internet are coming together to support my friend and client Ellery Adams whose sister-in-law died tragically of complications from a C-Section. Ellery's newest book Pies and Prejudice, the first in an incredible new series launches this week and I know Ellery would be dedicated to promoting if she could. Instead these incredible authors are putting their own work aside to do what they can to support her. Thank you everyone. I'm touched by what you're doing. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/pies-and-prejudice-ellery-adams/1107390485?ean=9780425251409
About the book:
The first in The Charmed Pie Shoppe Mysteries.
When the going gets tough, Ella Mae LaFaye bakes pies. So when she catches her husband cheating in New York, she heads back home to Havenwood, Georgia, where she can drown her sorrows in fresh fruit filling and flakey crust. But her pies aren't just delicious. They're having magical effects on the people who eat them--and the public is hungry for more.
Discovering her hidden talent for enchantment, Ella Mae makes her own wish come true by opening the Charmed Pie Shoppe. But with her old nemesis Loralyn Gaynor making trouble, and her old crush Hugh Dylan making nice, she has more than pie on her plate. and when Loralyn's fiancé is found dead--killed with Ella Mae's rolling pin--it'll take all her sweet magic to clear her name.

Ellery Adams grew up on a beach near the Long Island Sound. Having spent her adult life in a series of landlocked towns, she cherishes her memories of open water, violent storms, and the smell of the sea. Ms. Adams has held many jobs including caterer, retail clerk, car salesperson, teacher, tutor, and tech writer, all the while penning poems, children's books, and novels. She now writes full-time from her home in Virginia. (from author's website).
Are thoughts are with the author and her family. I hope she will join us later on Book Talk to talk about her book in her own words.
