[From Josh Hayes]
I’m happy to announce Keystroke Medium’s 3rd Annual Cover for a Cure event on April 27th, 2019 @ 2pm Eastern / 1pm Central.

The past two events were hugely successful, bringing in over $6,000 for two different charities and this year we hope to continue that success.

Tom Edwards and Jamie Glover have generously provided several covers, created specifically for this event. If you’re an author in need of a cover, you will not find a better return for your money than a cover from either of these two artists.

For the previous events, we’ve donated to Parkinsons UK and the American Diabetes Association, and this year we’ve chosen something that hits a closer to home for Scott Moon and I. Our friend and co-worker, Police Detective Matt Young was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and given 3 to 6 months to live. As you can imagine, this came as quite a shock to Matt, his wife Laurie and their 7 children.

Working through a local 501c3, the Honor Adversis Foundation, we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the event to help Matt and his family through this extremely difficult time.

If you’re in the market for a cover (or two or three) please consider buying one through this event. Interested bidders can email to register.
