A dear friend of mine, author David Farland has a sixteen-year old son who is in critical condition following a long-board accident (more info below and at www.helpwolverton.com). I'm joining in a book bomb to spread the word about Dave's fantastic books, and encourage you to help. If you don't already have either of these books by Dave, please purchase copies of them today. They are both fantastic and I can't recommend them highly enough. On top of that, Dave is the most giving author I've ever met, always encouraging and mentoring writers around him. Please click through the links below to purchase the books:

Ben Wolverton, age 16, was in a tragic long-boarding accident on Wednesday the 4th, 2013. He suffers from severe brain trauma, a cracked skull, broken pelvis and tail bone, burnt knees, bruised lungs, broken ear drums, road rash, pneumonia, and is currently in a coma. His family has no insurance.
Ben is the son of author David Farland, whose books have won multiple awards, and who is widely known as a mentor to many prominent authors, such as Brandon Sanderson, Stephenie Meyer, and Brandon Mull.
Ben's treatment are expected to rise above $1,000,0000. To help raise money for Ben, we are having a book bomb (focused on Nightingale and Million Dollar Outlines) on behalf of Ben.
