Thoughts for Your Penny: Please Help Support BaconPalooza II

by Rich Handley

I am very pleased to announce my involvement in BaconPalooza II, a fundraising project to help children with autism. The event will be spearheaded by John Ordover, the founder and CEO of JJO Marketing and a former Pocket Books editor responsible for overseeing the licensed Star Trek novels. A "bacon-ized" version of a short story of mine, "Thoughts for Your Penny," will appear in the event's softcover program guide, titled Baconthology.

It's my honor to contribute to this book, and Paul Giachetti and I will be attending the fundraiser. If you can, please attend as well and support John's efforts. All attendees to BaconPalooza II will receive a FREE softcover copy of Baconthology (a $25.00 value; e-mail sgdaintra@gmail.com regarding advertising opportunities). My story will run alongside others from Greg Cox, Lucienne Diver, Steve Fahnestalk, Carlos Hernandez, Kij Johnson, Amanda Jette Knox, Annie Reed, Mike Resnick and Brad Torgerson, and I'm truly humbled to be in such company for such an important cause.
