Book Bomb for Dave and Ben Wolverton

Ben Wolverton, the sixteen-year old son of author David Wolverton, was involved in a long-boarding accident last week, that left him with multiple injuries, including a severe brain trauma. Now his family is facing some astronomical medical bills as they fight to keep Ben alive. With that in mind, today an organized Book Bomb is taking place on amazon.com, with fans and well wishers purchasing copies of Dave's YA fantasy novel Nightingale or his non-fiction book Million Dollar Outlines.

Dave has been paying it forward on the behalf of others for years. Both as a Writers of the Future contest judge, and as veteran professional who has offered advice and hard-won wisdom on the craft to newcomers like me. So if you've got a few bucks and are interested in either YA fiction or how to write a solid novel outline, you may want to consider purchasing one of the books mentioned above. Or, alternatively, make a donation for Ben on the Kickstarter-style medical funding site Go Fund Me.
