Dear Kathy,
My name is Meg Walsh and I am the author of the new children's book, Mama, Won't You Play With Me?  It is a story that I wrote after the difficult time that my family and I faced as I battled Systemic Lupus. 
Mama, Won't You Play With Me?, is the story of young Dudley Duckling's struggle as his Mama has a broken wing and cannot play with him. I found that my own children immediately connected with Dudley, and it is my hope that I can help other children that are in a similar situation.
Eight million families in the US alone have one or both parents disabled. What this says to me is that there are a lot of children out there that need help understanding the situation that they are in. Although admittedly this book is not a literary masterpiece, it is a sweet story of family and love that may comfort the child with an ill or disabled parent or caregiver.
As a strong supporter of Lupus research for many years, I have also decided that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book will be donated to the Lupus Foundation of America.  Every few months, I will pick a new illness related charity to receive my donation.  On my website, www.megwalshonline.com, I encourage readers to submit their own stories and recommend a worthy charity for me to spotlight.
I have pasted the press release for this book below. It hope that you and websites such as yours will join me in getting the word out about this book, and how it can help the children of the 8 million disabled parents in the US.
Thank you for your time. I hope that you will be back in touch with me soon.

For Immediate Release

New book for charity tackling the obstacle of disease and disability in the family dynamic

Over 8 million families in the United States alone have one or both parents disabled. The stress of illness can be difficult for anyone to bear but for the children of disabled parents it can be overwhelming.  A child’s tendency is perhaps to act out in defiance and to be angry with the parent because they lack understanding.  A new book has been released in an effort to open the lines of communication for these parents and their children.

As a Registered Nurse, mother and Systemic Lupus sufferer, Meg Walsh, author of Mama, Won’t You Play With Me? Knows both personally and professionally of the effects that long term illness can have on a family.  In her own family, both her sister and brother-in-law are battling cancer, each with young children.  Out of the 5 children born to Walsh and her 2 sisters, all 5 have a disabled parent.  These numbers speak for themselves.

Walsh’s book is the story of Dudley Duckling whose mother has a broken wing and cannot play with him.  It is a heartwarming story of love and family for any child and may bring comfort to the child of a disabled or ill parent.

For each book sold, Walsh will donate a portion of the proceeds to a local charity organization.  Each month a different charity will be chosen to receive these donations.  She welcomes readers to contact her through her website, www.MegWalshOnline.com to share their story and nominate a charity to receive the donations.
