My friend Jack...

Jack Whyte with friends Anne Perry & Pamela Patchet...is in hospital today, having surgery on his lung.

[He speaks about it here on his blog...]

Jack Whyte is a brilliant storyteller, and one of the sweetest, most generous writers I know -- always a kind word of encouragement to other writers, ready to lend a hand -- or raise his voice in song -- whenever needed.We have worked together for more than a decade, supporting new writers, and Jack has offered his time, his money and his heart.

He has meant so much to me in my writing life; as a mentor, a champion and a friend. 

So, here's my thought: If you've ever read one of Jack's brilliant books, heard him speak, or listened to him sing, how 'bout sending a surge of any good karma you might have hanging around in his direction today? You can send out your love and admiration to him on twitter at @authorjackwhyte or send him an encouraging thought by email at his website camulod.com

Today is a good day to share the love.


So, I'll start, okay?


I love you, Jack. Get better quick as ye can!


More soon...




UPDATE: December 12:

Jack's webmaster Mark posted a brief update here: http://camulod.com/node/1642. In essence, it notes that Jack has been in hospital longer than expected, but will be heading home in the next day or two. Keep sending that #LoveToJackWhyte out into the universe!
