Support Absolute Write

The writing community of AbsoluteWrite stands strong!

I’m sure by now you’re all aware of the unfortunate circumstances that had more than 7,000 writers forced to go to a refugee camp awaiting the return of the AbsoluteWrite forums.

If not, scroll down to the post below and you’ll be able to read some of the details.

During the time of confusion, I was dealing with other matters, but I’m back and will now do everything in my power to help Jenna Glatzer and the AbsoluteWrite community recoup from this horrific debacle.

Those who would like to help, please add a support button to your website or blog.
Thanks to Matt you can get your very own button to show your support. Click on it and purchase The Street Smart Writer by Jenna Glatzer and help support Absolute Write. Here’s the code—just replace the [] brackets with <>these.

Cheers to Kira and her wonderful support of Jenna throughout her blog and adding more than 100 links of bloggers who are talking about the Barbara Bauer Ph.D BS.
Please read Jenna’s blog and if you haven’t yet donated and do what you can.

Dawno is passing the word and helping out as much as she can. Plus, she has the CafePress Store where you can purchase all sorts of neat things to support AW.

Mac’s great! I just love her resounding support for Absolute Write.

I may be a bit late, but I’ll be adding my support button and a CafePress button to my blog and website as soon as I publish this blog. I already own Jenna’s book, The Street Smart Writer (which by the way I highly recommend) but I’ll be shopping at the CafePress soon to give my support.

If you’d like, you can also make a donation here.

HA! Barbara Bauer Ph.D. has been Wikipedia’d!!!!! Bet she never thought she’d get soooooo much attention. Bet she now wishes she hadn’t.

See you all at the Cooler!
