Guest Blogger: Lily Oak

Today we have a special guest blogger, not that they aren't all special, but Lily Oak is donating a portion of proceeds from her book Hope Moon to to the Haiti Earthquake Support Fund. So welcome Lily! And take it away!

The Story of 'Hope Moon'

Let me paint you a picture. One January morning earlier this year, I sink into the sofa cup of tea in hand, recovering from manic morning getting kids to school. I flick on the TV, and am greeted with harrowing news pictures from the Haiti earthquake disaster. I wish I could do something I thought. Just then my phone started chirping at me, I recognised the number as my temp. agency. "...they said they didn't need you after all. We've got you another placement though it starts on Monday." Nevermind I thought I've already booked child care so I guess I get three quiet days to myself... I'm sure I'll find some thing to do. Something. Then it clicked, being a firm believer in everything happens for a reason, what else would I do?!

Half an hour later this appeared on Facebook

I sat nervously sorting out an IBAN a couple of hours later, panicing I really was going to fall flat on my face! But, luckily it turns out there are some pretty fantastic people in the world. Namely: Isabelle A Newbill, Julie Carty, Kaolin Fire, Lidia Tremblay, Rob Bond. All the people at Pagan Magic, Lakefront Pagan Voice, Static Movement and Rainbow Tarot.

I'm confused. Did Lily write and sell this in a couple of days????
