Okay, I don’t want you guys to forget that I’m giving away a Kindle. Just leave me a comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Everybody is eligible: friends, family, people I’ve never heard of, fellow writers, whatever. I’m just trying to spread the joy of the ebook this holiday season.
That said, I want to focus on my other giveaway. It’s something we can all work on together. I’d love to give a great deal of money to the National Wildlife Federation this holiday season. I’ll be getting my November royalty statement from Lyrical Press in early December. They’re very good about getting it to me quickly. As soon as I know how much it is, I’ll post on here to let you know how much we’re giving to the animals.
Did you know the Gulf Oil Disaster of 2010 is still a problem for wildlife? National Wildlife Federation volunteers continue to locate and rescue oil-damaged wildlife in the area. They’re also studying the long-term effects of the disaster. Just because it was (finally) capped and is no longer in the news doesn’t mean it’s gone.
So my plan is to donate November and December’s royalties to the National Wildlife Federation’s Gulf Oil Spill Restoration Fund. I feel deeply that this is an area of national concern, and I hope you’ll join me in supporting them. You can do this on your own, of course, by clicking on the link above. Or you can purchase my book for $5.50 or less at one of these retailers and know my portion of the sale is going to a good cause:
