Kansas City Author Pledges Support to National Fibromyalgia Association

Kansas City, KS, June 09, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Jody Summers, a Kansas City author, released his first novel in March, Dark Canvas. As a result of an unusual set of circumstances, Jody has been moved to pledge a portion of his revenues from this first endeavor to support the National Fibromyalgia Association. Each book sale will help to further research and awareness on this insidious and painful neurological disorder.

Dark Canvas is a gripping romantic thriller centering around a recently retired model that picks up the paint brushes of her youth and comes up with the unique idea of mixing the ashes of the deceased, which she calls cremains, with her paints to produce tribute paintings. She subsequently finds she is receiving images from the subjects of her paintings which start out innocuous enough then become increasingly terrifying and possibly deadly.

Mr. Summers was quoted as saying, ”I’ve loved writing all my life and have written poetry since I was a kid, but after meeting someone who actually does these paintings and was stricken with Fibromyalgia, the idea for the plot was too compelling not to write. Now I’m finding I can’t get enough of writing. In the three years since I began writing Dark Canvas I’ve not only finished it, but am on my second rewrite of the sequel The Mask Maker and three quarters of the way through the first draft of a third novel, a religious thriller, that I should finish later this year. I’m hoping to use each of my novels as a springboard to help a particular cause.”

You can order Dark Canvas now through thousands of Internet websites including
iUniverse.com, BarnesandNoble.com or Amazon.com.
