I wanted to let those who are following this horrible event that impacted a very known and integral blogger, Fatin, whose husband was killed in a senseless shooting this week that the romance world is rallying around her and her daughters.
Authors who know Fatin and fellow bloggers who are her friends have set up the following site to auction off some great prizes being donated by authors, publishers, and fellow bloggers to auction off on ebay.  Go HERE to see the great list of prizes being offered.  The site will be updated with more prizes as more participants offer up more prizes.  So keep checking back in at the site for more listing of great things to bid on.  


 I don’t know Fatin personally but I have been a long time follower of her blog and I’ve enjoyed reading her blog RR@H Novel Thoughts & Book Talk.  Fatin’s husband passed away suddenly in a very senseless shooting this week.  With permission from Lillie (co-blogger of RR@H Novel Thoughts & Book Talk) who is in contact with Fatin I am reposting what has been communicated at Fatin’s blog.  My thoughts and prayers goes out to Fatin and her daughters.  I am not eloquent with words by any stretch but when I read this my heart just broke for her.  I can’t imagine having to go through this! 

Click HERE for a direct link to the blog post at Fatin’s blog and here is the article. If you would like to contribute and help out the information is below.  Contact Lillie as stated below if you have any questions.

Many of you may have already heard that Fatin has had a tragedy in her family. I have kept quiet because I wanted to help protect Fatin’s privacy until I had her permission to say anything. She has given that permission.

On Tuesday morning, Fatin’s husband lost his life to a shooting at his workplace.

I’ve received many emails asking what people can do to help and right now, I just don’t know. If I get that information, I will pass it on. Please just keep Fatin and her daughters in your thoughts and prayers. Those prayers are definitely needed at this tragic time.

If you have any blog related questions, please contact me at lillie80 at gmail dot com.

  1. Oh God, that’s horrible. I don’t understand people these days with these shootings. It’s just senseless and cruel. My thoughts and prayers are with Katin’s family.

  2. I heard about this, and it is so sad. Such senseless violence. I searched for that city’s news, and I saw a video of the news report. From what they said, Fatin’s husband was liked and respected. What a tragedy for his family. It shows you that we need to appreciate every moment.
