I wanted to give everyone a heads-up that I will be donating all the royalties I earn through sales tomorrow (November 11th) for DARKNESS HAUNTS to the Wounded Warrior Project. This is for both ebook and paperback with each of the retailers where it’s available (Amazon, B&N, iTunes, and Kobo). After I’ve gotten the totals (which should be by late Wednesday) I will report the full amount earned and for every $100 raised I’ll kick in another $50. I’ll also post a receipt for my donation. Please help me out in making it as much as possible!
If you’re following my blog you’ve probably already purchased Darkness Haunts, but if you know friends or family who might enjoy the novel please let them know. Any help spreading the word through social media would also be appreciated. The hashtag for Twitter to use is #vetsgiveback if you choose to tweet about it.
This is in conjunction with other veteran authors who are also donating to their favorite veteran charities. Even if you can’t purchase Darkness Haunts, you can help by purchasing any of the other books listed at this link, contributing to one of the charities yourself, or offering a contribution to whatever sales I get. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
We’ve got a live Google Hangout set up where I’ll be tomorrow afternoon (EST in America) where you can come chat with myself and other veteran authors. This is your chance to ask questions about the Sensor Series if you’ve got any and get them answered right away. You can also feel free to join in whichever other topics we may choose to discuss. This is the link:
And these are the full details about the charity event below:
Veteran’s Day 2014 Charity Challenge: Gone, but Not Forgotten!On Veteran’s Day 2014, 50 veteran authors will pledge 100% of their print, ebook and audio book royalties to their favorite veteran’s charity. In most cases, these are organizations that assisted the authors personally and they are trying their best to give back.Veterans from each service branch and every conflict period, from Vietnam to even one author deployed to Afghanistan at this moment, are pledging. This diverse collection of works includes New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers and covers most genres. From romance to action-adventure and everything in between, there’s something for every taste here!The ultimate goal of this event is to raise at least $10,000 for the 15+ veterans charities they’re supporting. If you aren’t interested in any of the books available, they have a page set up ranking the money raised for each charity and spotlighting bonus donations. Whether you contribute to the best performing or the least performing, either way your donation will be put to good use!The complete collection of participating books and charities can be found here:Note: For the sake of transparency, each author will post their donation receipts within 90 days. If you are a veteran author, they are accepting submissions until noon (EST) on 11 November. Please visit the Writer’s Cafe at Kboards for submission details:
What an amazing idea. I’d love to help, I have a friend who I think would love your books who I could gift to, a question though, will sales from Amazon UK count?
Hey, Sarah. Yes, all sales worldwide will count. Thanks so much for your support 🙂
Wonderful Susan! Now off to find out how to gift on Amazon. Good luck with the day, I hope you do well.
