Best-selling author L.A. Banks also known as Leslie Esdaile Banks is gravely ill and the literary community has come out to support her in her time of need. The romance community has gathered together to auction off literary opportunities to raise funds to help the author with rising medical bills. The community of supporters include authors, writers, editors, agents, publishers, artists and RT Book Reviews Magazine to name a few.
The New York Times and USA Today Best-selling author has penned over 40 novels and 12 novellas in a wide range of genres. Recently she was featured as a speaker on the HBO Special on Vampire Literature and Legends as a prelude to the True Blood premier. She also won the coveted contract to write a book series for the popular cable network television series, Soul Food. L.A. Banks was also contracted to write the novelization of the movie, Scarface, which looks at Tony Montana's life two years before he emigrated from Cuba to American in 1978.
In addition, Banks penned a four-book crime thriller, beginning with Betrayal of the Trust, under her alternate pseudonym, Leslie Esdaile Banks. She has penned a 12 book Vampire Huntress Legend series under the pseudonym, L.A. Banks, for St. Martin's Press, as well as a hot new werewolf series, Crimson Moon Novels (a six book series.) Banks has also moved into ebooks with Red Rose Publishing, graphic novels, comics, manga and even a new YA, entitled, Shadow Walker, for her thriving Vampire Huntress Legends series, as well as a young adult paranormal series that is under development.
You can go to her auction website and there is a list of services, autographed books, conference packages, advertising packages, all kinds of great opportunities and items for writers and readers. As a writer, I know many of the things on the list would be very beneficial, and as a reader, they would make great gifts to myself, family or friends and the proceeds go to help a truly gifted writer on her own personal journey. My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family. I know we are all sending well wishes and many blessings her way.
