When author Tania Elizabeth contacted me and asked if I’d give a post on my website over to her for the Starlight Children’s Charity, how could I refuse? As a humanist I am passionate about helping others when I can. Now, regular followers please note – Tania’s book isn’t horror. But this isn’t primarily about us authors. It’s about helping the children – and that is worth doing.
So, here is the information about the Starlight initiative – and I ask you to do whatever you can – followed by details on Tania and her book.
My thanks to Tania for approaching me. Best of luck!
The Starlight Children’s Foundation transforms the experience of hospitalisation and treatment for seriously ill children and their families. Starlight is the only children’s charity delivering services into every children’s ward in hospitals and hospices nationwide and with the same taking place abroad.
Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia. For thousands of these children what happens next is the diagnosis of a serious or chronic illness that changes their life, and the lives of their families, forever.
This is where Starlight steps in – delivering a range of innovative programs, built on the World Health Organisation’s social model of health, to support the well-being and resilience of these seriously ill children and their families.
Starlight programs are integral to the total care of seriously ill children – while the health professionals focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to lift the spirits of the child – giving them the opportunity to laugh and play and be a child again.
A message from Tania
STARLIGHT AUTHOR’S AID
I am asking for everyone’s assistance.
To give to others is to give to oneself, and I NEED YOUR HELP!!!
Help us to raise funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, which supports terminally ill children and their families.
There are two ways in which people can help. It is very easy.
By simply hosting, reviewing my book or interviewing me via a blog post, Amazon, newspaper, radio, TV within a 21 day window frame, between the dates of Friday 12th of April and Friday the 3rd of May. For every appearance, I will be donating $1 to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
If any of you could help, I would be so grateful. If you could connect me with anyone else who would be happy to interview, do a short post or review I’d be doubly grateful.
I’m also asking for donations, even $1, which you may do direct via this link. http://starlightday2013.gofundraise.com.au/page/ElizabethT

We are looking at making this an annual event. This year it is centred on me though every year after we will base it on another upcoming author. So, please share and pass this along to all. Let’s make this a huge affair and raise much needed funds for a very worthy cause.
My heartfelt thanks to all.
Tania Elizabeth is a mother first and foremost, and the author of The Tier of Eternal Grace. Book One The Moon Clearing was released earlier this year. Book Two The Mirrors Shadow will be released in September. Book Three will then follow in the early part of 2014.
The Tier of Eternal Grace is a captivating fantasy of magic and passion, wound into the truths of reality that will enchant readers with its depiction of the faerie realm, and the exploits of the faeries themselves. Book One of the series The Moon Clearing is an immersive tale of mysticism and adventure, of spiritual and sensual intent that shall enrapture your every sense.
Beyond the boundary that separates the mundane and earthly planes from the divine lies Eterna Fadas, a place ruled by extraordinary beings, lithe and human-like in appearance, yet ethereal in their grace and beauty, and sensuous in nature.
“I have existed always! Where I began I do not know, for all I know is just as I am today!”
As Queen, Tatiana was thought to have lived a life of opulence, her faith and beliefs her endearing essence. Why then was it so, that beneath the picture of perfection laid torments and terrors even she dare not explain. Being She came with its prices paid. Being She came with a deal; a contract in which she was to relinquish herself to a rogue of unmerciful fury. Would this be the end of all she know? Would this be the end of her existence?
About the Author, Tania Elizabeth
Like each and every one of us, Tania’s own journey has been one of trials and tribulations, of love and of passions; and the dissolution of it. Heartache, sorrow, smiles and laughter always present. Through the writing of this book and the words of Tatiana, Tania has found a peace within and learnt the true meaning of “I LOVE ME!”
Aside from her writing and her three angels, Tania is also an advocate for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Being a mother herself and having seen firsthand what some of these children are dealt with on a day to day basis, and yet seeing the strength and courage they each maintain, Tania felt the need to not only donate her time, but to also help raise much needed funds.
