Many of you may recall that my debut novel, The Secret Of Spruce Knoll has a special mission: Spruce Knoll for Endangered Species. For those who don't know, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each copy of The Secret Of Spruce Knoll (in every format) will go toward my favorite charity that helps save endangered species. I've set a campaign goal of $10,000 for the charity, which I hope to reach by 12-12-2012. And, if I do reach it, I'll be able to continue to donate a portion of the proceeds to the charity for another year.
Why this cause, why now? Because I want to leave a better, healthier Earth for future generations. Part of a healthy Earth is a healthy eco-system which includes animals. I want our children's children to be able to study gorillas or tigers in the wild. Sadly, those creatures~and so many more~are less than a decade away from extinction in the wild. Extinction.
For my reader's sake I'm thrilled that Compass Press has dropped the price of The Secret Of Spruce Knoll, but it makes things tougher for my campaign's sake. This means I'll have to sell even more copies to get near my goal. Which is where all of you come in. I'd like to spread the word about the cause to drum up interest in Spruce Knoll, and awareness of the plight of endangered species. If you'd like to feature myself, The Secret Of Spruce Knoll, do a character interview on the subject, anything you'd like, please leave me a comment with a way to contact you. Together we can make a difference.
