Author Lyn Gibson hacks her way out of her flooded Tangipahoa Parish home
CARTHAGE, N.C. – Aug. 18, 2016 – PRLog — When Ms. Donna L. Quesinberry (“Q”), Founder and CEO of DonnaInk Publications, LLC, learned Author Lyn Gibson and her husband John sustained the second of two devastating Louisiana floods within a six month span, she decided to donate $1.00 for every title sold (no matter the genre) to the Author Lyn Gibson Fund over the next 45- to 60-day period. DonnaInk is also offering readers who purchase Lyn Gibson’s masterfully blended Vampire legend series, “The Adrian Trilogy” a 25% discount. Lyn’s books are well-crafted in three volumes: 1) “To Be His Soulmate,” 2) “Adrian’s Fury,” and 3) “Adrian’s Legacy,” which are available as separates and/or a series. Either way, the 25% discount is achieved by entering the code: Adrian’sFury at checkout. All other DonnaInk titles feature a 15% discount, no matter the genre, just enter the code: AuthorLynGibson at checkout.
Q states, “Hopefully, fans, friends and readers alike will participate and purchase one of Lyn’s books “or” if they are non-horror readers, they’ll purchase any DonnaInk book in order to extend our donation from those sales at $1.00 per book to Author Lyn Gibson. Purchasing one or all of “The Adrian Trilogy” titles will lift one of our featured authors and lend a healing hand during this time of crisis. Readers come away knowing they’ve helped out and with a book in tow.”
In a recent conversation Lyn shared with Q, she discussed the March 2016 flood that the Gibson’s just recovered from, which resulted in the rebuild of their home. As is often the case regarding floods, hurricanes and tornados . . .Q asked Lyn about their decision to rebuild rather than relocate. Lyn responded, “March’s flood was rare, they say the likelihood of another flood like we had in March is pretty slim.” Both women laughed presuming it would be another 80 years before a flood of March’s magnitude struck again; however, less than two weeks after their conversation this most recent flood plagued Tangipahoa Parish.
And, damages are far worse for the Gibsons than they were in March. As Lyn’s Publisher, DonnaInk Publications is striving to extend help in the only way we know, by making the “The Adrian Trilogy” even more affordable through discount with a donation for every title purchased by the publishing initiative “in addition to Lyn’s royalties.” Of course, the more of Author Lyn Gibson’s titles that are sold, the higher her royalties that can aid her and her family in their post-flood crisis as well as lift their spirits through author successes. DonnaInk is asking the community-at-large to join us by providing light at the end of the tunnel. Take a moment to embrace Ms. Gibson and sustain her current and future work, as well as all our author’s work, as each title results in $1.00 donation.

Author Lyn Gibson’s story about this week’s flooding are shared here in her own words:
“The last news broadcast that we saw warned this flood would be the same or a little worse than the March flood. We prepared our vehicles and belongings for 3 feet of water. By approximately 7:00 PM the water was already higher than in March. John braved the high water to move our vehicles to the highest ground in the neighborhood . . . by the time he got everything moved he couldn’t get back to me. He worried sick over me and I him but we texted and called back and forth.
Around 3:30 AM, the house had approximately 5 feet of water inside, John was becoming lethargic, we thought just due to exhaustion and stress. I told him to nap for an hour, I called him back at 4:30 AM he was much worse, and the water much higher. I texted my friends, instructed them to call 911 and have him evacuated, then to send the boats to come get me.
In the meanwhile, I opened a hole in the side of the second story wall with a screwdriver and sheet rock saw, and some foul language and kicking. John was evacuated by boat to ambulance . . . I was under the impression he had a heart attack or stroke. Shortly after, I was evacuated with my two pups by boat from the 2nd floor . . .
There was a period of about 2 hours whether I didn’t know if John was dead or alive and couldn’t get anyone on the phone to tell me any different. That span of time seemed like forever.
We are both okay and from what we hear water continued to rise and our home is completely submerged along with our vehicles and businesses. This is all just stuff and replaceable but my husband and my friends and family are priceless.
Thank all of you for your support and prayers, much needed at this time.”
