Help Deb Mensinger get a liver transplant

A few years ago, I read a fantasy novel that set my mind on fire like no fantasy novel had done for quite some time. It was clearly excellent, very original work, and I could barely wait for the sequel. It was worth the wait. Eventually a third book came out, and I look forward to the fourth. Please help me to not wait any longer than necessary!

The Books: Fire Logic, Earth Logic, and Water Logic, by Laurie J. Marks.

The Connection: Deb Mensinger is Laurie's wife. Deb's liver is being destroyed by porphyria, and she needs a transplant in order to survive. She has a willing potential live donor, and if she gets a transplant, Laurie might not be so distracted by having a dying wife, and we all get more wonderful books, faster! Everybody wins.

How to help: send a donation marked "for Deb's liver" to WomanEarthandSpirit AT gmail DOT com via Paypal or participate in an online fundraising auction by donating an item or service for auction or bidding on an item.

Bidding begins on Saturday, May 1, 2010, at 12:01 am Eastern Daylight Savings Time and ends Sunday, May 23, 2010, 11:59 pm Eastern DST. There are a bunch of awesome offerings already and I expect more to be added on in May. Maybe by you? Please say yes!
