Help Ben Wolverton

If you are looking for my A-Z Challenge post, it's directly below this one. 
Here's a copy of Lee Falin's post from April 10, 2013:
Help Ben WolvertonFor some time now thousands of other aspiring writers have been benefiting from the advice that author and teacher David Farland (aka David Wolverton) gives away for free via his Daily Kicks newsletters, as well as many other services he provides for aspiring writers.
Last week his 16-year old son Ben was in severe accident, sustained several life-threatening injuries, and is currently in a coma. Like many other self-employeed individuals, Dave and his family don't have health insurance, and Ben's medical bills are expected to reach the six-figure range.
So to help support the Wolverton family, several people in the writing community have organized a book bomb, an event where as many people as possible purchase a book on a given day in order to help support an author.
The two books being "bombed" are: Million Dollar Outlines, a great book for aspiring writers with lots of tips for making your stories stand out; and Nightingale, Dave's award-winning young adult fantasy novel.
If you don't have any interest in these books, you can donate directly to help Ben.
If you're short on cash, you can help spread the word via twitter, facebook, or any other way you can think of.
Ben and his family greatly appreciate your support.
Give away
To help support this effort, Lee Falin purchased 50 copied of Million Dollar Outlines. To get one, just help spread the word about Ben and the book bomb, and email him a link to your tweet/blog post/facebook message. The first 50 people to do so get a copy of the book.
