Several local authors from the Mansfield and Ashland areas met at the Olivesburg General Store to sell their books and donate some of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

Authors Phoebe Siylor, BreAnn Fennel, Rosie Eberts, Donna Caudill, and April Boyer signed books for customers who visited the store and talked about writing them. The books varied from children's storybooks to adult-fiction and journal compilations, and ranged from topics such as life advice to surviving breast cancer.

"Every book that we sell today, we are donating toward that cause," said Phoebe Siylor. "I'm personally hoping to make a minimum of at least $25, but it depends on the sales we make."

Each author set an individual amount for what they wanted to donate to charity, rather than include a flat rate contribution.

"I want to be able to do my part to help others," said Donna Caudill. "And if that means making my words and my book available, then that's my way of giving."

Each of the author's books can be found on Amazon or through their author pages on Facebook.
