Indie Authors need your help!

Areas of Louisiana have been hit hard by tragic, historic flooding, with thousands of residents finding themselves stranded and possibly losing their homes. As of Sunday evening, more than 20,000 had been rescued and at least four people died. Louisiana authorities warned that the flooding might not be over yet if scattered showers fall in the region. Gov. John Bel Edwards had the area declared a disaster. “This is a serious event,” he said. “It is ongoing. It is not over.”
There are so many people in need, but it has been brought to my attention that 4 indie authors in particular have lost everything. I’m hoping you’ll take a moment this week and share the links below on your page or timeline. If you do a newsletter, maybe you can slip in their links somewhere too. There’s power in numbers and as a community we have the ability to give these families some sort of comfort one click at a time.

Thank you for your time and have an amazing week!
Tee Tate’s 
Rain is still falling in Louisiana, and the Tate Family’s home is underwater. I’m Christine Case-Lo – I’ve known author Tee Tate for years through a shared love of good reading and good writing. Now she and Chris and two teens (13 and 16) have had to leave their family home due to the flooding in and around Baton Rouge. They’ve lost their home and two cars and years of memories. They have no prospects for a new place.
The whole area is underwater, and without flood insurance, once the water recedes rebuilding their lives will be a challenge without our help. Tee and Chris are amazing people, who would help anyone who needed it. Now, they are the ones who need help.I’m sitting high and dry in California – but once I saw the pictures of their area – I knew they would need us to help contribute as soon as possible. Please give what you can, and let others know that they can make a difference for this awesome family. All money will be used to help the Tate Family. Thank you!

Season’s 
Due to the recent flooding in Louisiana, Season’s family has lost their home, their cars, and everything except the clothes on their backs. Season is not only a talented author, but she is more importantly, a loving mother of her 8 month-old daughter.
It will be a very long road for her, Jack, and their baby to put the pieces of their lives back together. Season is such a loving person with a vibrant personality. She’s made many friends and those friends want to help however they can. No donation is too small to ease the devestation they have suffered.
This fund was created by Season’s friends and Season has direct access to these funds to help her family as needed.
Help spread the word!
