Sandi Rog is a fellow writer and online friend whose first book, The Master’s Wall, was published just a couple of weeks ago. The very day her book was released–it should have been the most joyful day–Sandi was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma and began immediate chemo. The first thing Sandi needs is prayer. She’s been on Facebook off and on since the diagnosis and beginning of treatment. If you feel so inclined, please pray for her and perhaps pop over to her Facebook page (just search Sandi Rog) or to her website and let her know she’s on your heart.
The second thing comes from her publisher, and I’ll post a portion of his letter here for you to read:
This is Daniel DeGarmo with DeWard Publishing Company. I’m sure all of you are aware of Sandi Rog’s latest battle (with cancer – Type T-cell Lymphoma) that just began last week. As you can imagine, she’s devastated, especially considering the timing of all this as her first novel just released last Monday.
Well, considering we are a small publishing company and can pretty much do whatever we want, my business partner and I have agreed to donate an additional $1 per book to a Fund that I’ll be setting up this week. Just so no one thinks we are being shady about the whole deal, this is above and beyond the royalties that Sandi (and her agent) is already incurring with every book sold. The purpose of this fund is to help out Sandi’s family (husband and children) while she is laid up fighting for her life.
What I need from you is simply spread the word. For every copy of “The Master’s Wall” that is sold (including Kindle) we will donate $1 to this Fund. I’ll also be setting it up so that it can receive regular donations if anyone is interested in just helping out financially.
I want to close by lifting the following prayer up on Sandi’s behalf: Father, I lift my sister before you as her body has been stricken with disease. You know, O God, that she has used her gifts to glorify You and spread your wonderful message of grace and love. It is my humble plea that you would bring her healing and complete recovery. I know You can do this, You are the Great Physician. Please bring Your Spirit into her home as her husband and children continue to live life without her there. They need You. May all that is done bring You glory as our God and Father.In Jesus’ name – AMEN!
I love this idea. Not only does it help Sandi and her family, but it answers every author’s dream of knowing others are reading and loving their words. If you’d be willing to purchase Sandi’s book, you can click on the image above to go straight to the Amazon page for it. I will not receive anything if you go through my site to buy it. I’m providing the link out of convenience and to help out Sandi. Thanks, y’all!!!
