Karen DeLabar, nicknamed “Orange Karen,” was a healthy, athletic woman just three weeks shy of her 30th birthday when Toxic Shock Syndrome tried to steal her life. As an active member of the Twitter community, Karen had positively impacted the lives of hundreds of people who were shocked to hear of the young woman’s illness. "Orange Karen: Tribute to a Warrior" is an outpouring of love and respect from the online community for this woman who refused to stop fighting, proving that online friendships are not a fallacy. At the news of her struggle, Karen’s Twitter followers banded together to create this wonderful anthology. All proceeds go directly to pay for Karen’s medical expenses. The tales, which all contain the theme of “orange,” consist of a variety of genres, including mystery, fantasy, comedy, romance, and horror.
