The Kelli Standish Fund

Let me draw your attention to a great need, for a great person.

Kelli is one of my dearest friends; an amazing encourager, a huge supporter, with a generous, loving heart.

She is also a big supporter of Christian fiction. For a few years she ran the successful Focus on Fiction Web site. Now she works hard behind the scenes by creating amazing web sites. Kelli tirelessly works to promote authors and provide the support they need.

What many don't know is that Kelli is in need of support herself.

Kelli needs an urgent operation on her spine. Read her story at the links below, from top link to bottom link.

As stated in Kelli’s last blog entry, Better to Give Than Receive, literary agent Janet Kobobel Grant, has started a huge fundraising drive to help Kelli get the surgery she desperately needs. Here is what Janet writes:

Word has come of an anonymous matching grant of $10,000 for all monies raised on Kelli's behalf by November 15. If you would like to contribute, you are welcome to send checks made out to me, Janet Grant, at my address. I will collect the monies, apply the matching grant and give Kelli one check.

Books & Such Literary Agency

52 Mission Circle, Suite 122, PMB 170

Santa Rosa, CA 95409-5370

PayPal contributions now accepted. Please send PayPal payments to Please put "For Kelli" in the subject line.

So, there it is folks.

You may not know Kelli, but please help if you can. Even the smallest amount will add to the final balance.

Prayer is also greatly appreciated.


Are you a writer? Are you looking for an editing service and hoping to pay a reasonable rate? Would you rather your money went to a good cause?

Well here is your chance!

Aotearoa Editorial Services have a limited amount of services available via auction, all proceeds going towards Kelli's operation.

Be in quick. Auctions close midnight 12 November 2007
