National Wear Red Day

Please feel free to share others... We're hoping that some of you will commit to joining us on Feb 5th for National Wear Red day. The sign-up process is easy and we'll be plugging authors who commit to participate in our newsletter. Our newsletter schedule for the month of February will be M/W/F instead of the routine Tu/F. Each Wildfire will feature some of our 28 Days of Heart Novella's, those author's backlists, some new releases, and a variety of "heart healthy" content.
We are interested in featuring some authors in our newsletter who did not write for the series, but whose life has been touched by heart disease. Short testimonials attesting as to why supporting increased awareness, education, etc., is important. Have you recently made a commitment to lose weight, exercise more, decrease your cholesterol, or wear red on February 5th (read on for details)? Maybe you want to encourage others to join our National Wear Red Day team by sharing a personal story or offering a prize as an incentive? There are many ways you can help. Pitches should be sent to Julie Cummings at by January 31st. Content should be approximately 250-500 words. An accompanying headshot would be a plus.
