The ones that got away

Way back in 2009 on Tuesday, December 22nd, eleven Romance authors got together to read original short stories on live radio to raise donations for the homeless and the hungry in Detroit, and to fund the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit.

For those of you who missed this extraordinary event, don't fret. You have another opportunity to listen and donate - TODAY, January 5, 2010.

More authors volunteered than there was air time for on December 22nd, so on Tuesday January 5th, "The Ones That Got Away" will be read starting at TEN A.M. EASTERN.

Loretta Wheeler will read her story "DARK PLEASURES".
Pauline Baird Jones will read 'GETTING A CLUE"
Becke Martin has contributed "SILVER AND GOLD" which will be read as a play with various authors taking speaking parts.

The host is Rowena Cherry.

Thank you so much for spreading the word about this wonderful event and great charity! :-)

Hey Pauline!

Any time. I love the event's idea and of course the charity.

I hadn't seen this Denise...we're freezing in Houston, and I've been outside covering plants:) This is day two of the plant saga:)

I also wanted to thank you for the posting of this event...there are so many who have lost jobs and consequently their homes, that this has become a crisis. we'll hope this time of telling "tales" can help heighten their donations:)

Lo - I am happy to do anything I can to help. Good people/good cause. I hope the effort proves fruitful.
