SYNOPSIS: After the sudden loss of her husband in a car crash, Libby Moran falls on hard times-so hard, in fact, that she’s forced to move in with her hyper-critical mother. There, sleeping on the pull-out sofa so her two children can share the guest room, she can’t stop longing for the life she had. So when a letter arrives from Libby’s estranged aunt offering her a job and a place to live on her goat farm, Libby jumps at the opportunity. But starting over is never easy. With an aunt who is nothing like she imagined, a shaggy farm manager with a tragic past, a psychic at the feed store who claims to be able to contact the dead, and a bully at her daughter’s school, country life isn’t at all what Libby expected. But it also offers her what no other place can: A chance to define the good life for herself. A chance to piece together the mysteries of her own past. A chance, even, at love. And, finally, a chance to bring herself, and her family, back to life. Continue reading

On the night of February 10, 2013, Matthew Corn passed away in a tragic accident. It’s impossible to sum up the life and vibrant personality of one person in a few short sentences. To say Matt will be missed is an understatement of gross proportions.
He was a loving husband and devoted father, quick to give his family everything they needed and more. Matt moved from Pittsburgh to Savannah with his wife, Daniele, to work at Gulfstream. Here they had three children: Ben, 5, Andrew, 2, and Lily, 1. He was a hard worker, always giving one hundred and ten percent to his job, but never missed the chance to joke. He was known for being obsessively organized and neat. If you wanted to see him panic, all you had to do was move his tools out of order or get his Jeep dirty. Matt was an avid Pittsburg Steelers fan and Pittsburg Penguins fan, more than willing to go nose to nose for his favorite teams. He loved the outdoors and off-road ramp competitions. He spent time fishing and hunting with his children, eager to instill in them his love of nature. His friends knew him as a person that would drop everything if you needed help.
Now it’s our turn to help. Daniele and his children need us. With the generous donations of these wonderful authors, we hope to raise money for the Corn family to help with medical and living expenses. His loss has left a hole in the hearts of his family and friends that will never be filled, but it is our sincere wish that this auction will ease some of the burdens they face.
This auction event is being arranged and orchestrated by one of the participating authors, a close personal friend of the Corn family. All items available for bid are donated by the authors. 100% of the funds raised through the auction and donated to the general fund will be forwarded directly to the Corn family.
The website is currently under construction in preparation for the event, and should be complete no later than Wednesday, February 20. The aucution will open on Friday, February 22, and will run through Friday, March 15. Please see the Auction Rules page for more information.

We scheduled a fan chat for this Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 8:30 PM EST with author Michelle Leighton where YOU have the opportunity to chat with her online and ask her the questions you’ve always wanted to know about Down To You and Up To Me or anything else for that matter. Of course, she has complete control over what she does and doesn’t answer.
If you are new to our fan chats, we utilize Tinychat (which are live chat rooms) and will post the link on both Facebook and Twitter around 8:00 PM EST Wednesday night. The link for the chat is: http://tinychat.com/q2328
- You simply click on the link, which will take you to the chat room. (Do not login using Facebook, which seems to lock up or kick you out).
- Select Guest and change your user name
- If a Facebook pop up appears, press cancel
- You’ll now be in the chatroom
Listed below are some frequently asked questions to help you understand how Tinychat works. So spread the word and we hope you can join us!
Do I need a webcam to join the chat?
No. All our chats are conducted off camera so there’s no need for one.
Do I need to have a Facebook/Twitter account to log on? It’s asking for one, and I don’t feel comfortable using my real name.
We respect your wish to remain anonymous and totally understand your concern. No, you don’t need to have an account. It should give you the option of joining a chat as a “guest.” If that option is not available, try opening the chat link under a new browser (Safari, Firefox, Opera, etc.). The new browser option should prompt the guest option. If it doesn’t and you would like your name changed in the transcript, just contact us at the end of the chat and we’ll change it for you.
I’m on my phone and can’t log on! Help!
If you’re using a mobile (iPhone/Android), our suggestion is to download the tinychat app. The same goes if you’re using a tablet: http://tinychat.com/download.
I’m using a Mac / PC and I can’t connect or log on. How can I join?
If you’re using a Mac / PC and still can’t get logon, try a different browser other than the one you are using (Firefox, Opera, etc). If you still can’t log on, then try downloading the desktop app: http://tinychat.com/download.
I’m using an App on IPhone or Ipad.
After you have connected to the chat DO NOT log out or switch apps. If you do in order to reconnect you will have to power down device. Tiny Chat app will not allow you to leave app and return with out the power down.
I keep getting a plugin error or crashed. How do I fix it?
While we can’t help with technical issues, our only suggestion would be to reinstall the plugin. If that doesn’t fix the issue, then try to download the tinychat app and go from there or use another browser.
I’ve tried the above and still can’t get in, but I have a question for the author. What can I do?
The easiest thing would be to tweet us your question(s), and we’ll do our best to get your question answered. Afterwards we’ll give you the response and you can read the chat transcript.
