L. A. Banks Needs Your Help

L.A. Banks is the widely popular NYT Bestselling author of the Crimson Moon series, a steamy and sexy collection of werewolf books about Special Ops soldiers who kick serious ass all while dealing with their inner wolves. L.A. Banks has loads of fans on this site, I’ve lost count of how many times you guys have mentioned her series to us, which is why it saddens me to tell you that the beloved author is incredibly ill and in need of her fan’s support. She has been diagnosed with late stage adrenal cancer and is not doing well at all right now.

According to L.A. Banks’ website:

“It is with profound sadness that we have to inform you that our beloved sister and friend, Leslie Esdaile, (“L.A. Banks”) is most gravely ill. She has been diagnosed with late stage adrenal cancer.

She is facing an uphill battle in her struggle with serious illness.  Please know that as Leslie needs all of her energy in this fight, she is absolutely not able to receive visitors, answer emails, texts or phone calls, or receive flowers. What she is able to receive is your continued prayers.

Also, Leslie’s medical expenses are mounting at an astronomical rate. If you wish to assist Leslie, a fund has been established to help with these ever increasing expenses.  If you wish to send donations (please note that donations are not tax-deductible). For further information on how to donate, please see the donations page.

Please respect the privacy of Leslie and her family during this most difficult of times.

On behalf of all of your prayers and support, Leslie, her daughter Helena, Her sister Liza and all of her family and friends sincerely thank you.”

It’s truly terrible news, I know, but considering the amount of Banks fans here I thought you’d like to know.

To all the Crimson Moon fans here, why do you love the series so much?

  1. Sorry to hear. I do not know if I am actually a “fan” but have read her werewolf books and they are okay. There is sufficient wereolf mayhem to let me finish them :) Her werewolf mythology is a bit different and interesting with shadowwolves and werewolves being different types and then there are demon infected werewolves which are obviously the evil ones. Shadow wolves have different magic and is an not a bad reinterpretation. The series has gone a bit crazy with all the different creatures though from vampires both Seelie and Unseelie fey of various kinds etc. I hope she is able to overcome and recover though from the above post it unfortunately does not sound too hopeful.
