I need your help

breast cancerOn Friday 22nd November, Merry Chicklit, a warm, funny Christmas anthology in aid of Breast Cancer Care, will be officially released.
Every penny that isn’t being swallowed by Amazon is going to Breast Cancer Charity, Rocking the Road to a Cure.  It’s on sale for 77p, a tiny amount so to get as much money as we possibly can for the charity, I really need your help.
I know you are all insanely busy and have many other book and family commitments, but if you can feature it on your blog in the coming week that would be amazing.  If that’s not possible, if you can send out a few tweets over the next few days and especially on Friday that would be brilliant.  We need to get the word out there to as many people as we possibly can and make a real difference to those diagnosed with this awful disease.
Rocking the Road to a Cure is dedicated to improving the quality of life of people undergoing the often energy-depleting and emotionally draining treatments for breast cancer.

 The name comes from their founder and President, Dawn Frey, a musician, who learned through personal experience that “it takes a village” to get through the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, and not every individual has the support network they need.  Rocking The Road For A Cure provides free, in-home housekeeping, health and wellness services to restore strength and confidence, and to rebuild spiritual, emotional and physical well-being.

We were going to release at the beginning of December but with only a few weeks till Christmas we realised we were really limiting our sales, no one is going to buy the book once the big day has come and gone.  So I know this is really last minute to ask you to get involved, but anything you can do will be greatly appreciated.
Here is the book information.
merry chicklitIn the spirit of giving, six chick-lit authors “present” a charming collection of seasonal shorts sure to inspire holiday cheer-plus love and hope throughout the year, with all proceeds donated to Rocking the Road for a Cure!  Featured authors & stories include: 

Carolyn Ridder Aspenson 
In “Santa’s Gift,” journalist Jessica thinks Santa’s just a silly myth for children, so when he asks what she most wants for Christmas she tells him the one thing she knows he can’t deliver–true love. Or can he…? 

Sarah Hitchcock 
In “The Christmas Lights,” one competition pits two families against each other…who will win this war? 

Francine LaSala 
Pretty Izzy knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: hunky sales manager Jake Harrington wrapped up with a shiny silver bow–and nothing else. Except Santa may have other plans in “Carol of the Belles.” 

Nikki Mahood In “Spinster Christmas,” Cara’s looking forward to spending Christmas alone until she learns her old–and she believes very gay–crush needs a place to stay. Though it soon becomes clear that while still hot, Ronan isn’t gay after all… 

Holly Martin 
Ella’s dreams of making a better life for her and her daughter seem further away than ever in “Iced Dreams.” But as Christmas approaches, and she wishes for a fairy godmother to wave a magic wand to fix her life, things begin to change in ways she never imagined!

K.C. Wilder 
In “The Mermaid,” Allie’s content to spend Christmas by herself at a vacant beach house to make good on a promise made to her true love lost, Jeff. Until Jeff’s gorgeous college roommate Tim crashes in on her with his own promise to keep…

So snuggle up near the fire, drink a glass of wine or a cup of cocoa and enjoy these festive holiday shorts, knowing your purchase of this book is helping women with breast cancer.
