But her cult of loyal fans have banded together to help, and it's super heart warming:
Help Catherynne M. Valente
There are instructions on where to buy her awesome e-books, information on a serialized novel (that cameos in Palimpsest, yay), more of her projects, and a smorgasbord of goods and services for auction from her cult/army of artists. Jewelry, crafts, offerings from other indie writers, all full of awesome.
What's the best way to help any writer or artist? BUY THEIR STUFF.
If you are a professional artisan, see my appeal to professionals here on my jewelry blog. I don't cross-post these blogs often. This is a special case.
Go forth, feel the love, spread the word. Save our Cat!
