Buy Books, Donate to the Red Cross

This past week we had two promotions fall through because of Superstorm Sandy.  Even though I’m in Washington State, I’ve been touched (albeit very indirectly) from the storm.  So for the rest of the month of November, I will be donating 25% of all book sales to the Red Cross Relief Fund.  If you’d like to donate directly, please visit http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations to learn more.

Now on to the book sale… I have hundred (and I’m not kidding) of books that I inherited, but honestly don’t have the room for.

Speak Out Against Bullying: The Salt God’s Daughter by Ilie Ruby

Note from Ilie: The stories of the women who populate The Salt God’s Daughter were inspired by the confluence of real life and a Celtic myth, which I learned from a folksong my mother played on the guitar, The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry. While the myth is the map, its many roads reflect the experiences of my grandmothers, of my mother, of my friends, and of seventeen young girls I never knew but whose histories found me.

Top 10 Reasons to Spend Time at TEN BEACH ROAD in October!

TEN BEACH ROAD is hitting the shelves anew this month as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Penguin Group’s READ PINK® program.

The READ PINK® program was created by my publisher, Penguin Group (USA) to promote public awareness of breast cancer and breast cancer research and to support and recognize the contributions of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®(BCRF) by connecting the cause to books written by, for and about women.

For the past two years, Penguin’s Read Pink donation has sponsored 500 hours of research time and I’m incredibly proud and honored to have my book on the shelves with the Read Pink Seal on the cover and information about BCRF in the back of the book.

Kidd’s Kids – Donations Needed!

Sometimes we need to realize everything we have been blessed with… our family, friends, and our health. Unfortunately, others aren’t as lucky. There are many chronically and terminally ill children out there who must undergo years of hospitalization, daily medications, and the absence of a “normal” childhood. Together we can help make a small difference in their life. We can help them forget about their problems for 5 days while these kids and their families get a trip to Disney World!
